My week so far

 The new style in tiling is big not what I wanted and my bathroom is not very big so I Would like to go small, in the subway style of tiling, these I liked but too dark.

 This is what we settled on with a border of the black ones, the tiler comes next week.



 What do you think I'm pretty happy with it.
 Some very large pictures that Boo Peep turned up with one day they are huge, if I extend the sand bar on to the other picture they look like they belong together I rather like them in my hallway, new owners up his way were throwing them out so he got them for me to paint on but as I said they are much to big, as you can see they were painted by CK maybe Clark Kent so they are Superman paintings.
 Night is falling.

 Leeroy is asleep
 Interesting sky tonight


 I like the pink clouds.
The next day we pulled out the last wall, it backs on to the fireplace not so neat. but then it was built nearly 100 years ago.
very dusty, cleaned it as best I could and put up the last of the blueboard.
Maybe a mouse hole.
All finished now.

Some people liked the colour set up with the blue board maybe I should have gone with blue tiles but no to late now and I do like the grey..

  2. Your bathroom is going to look stunning, worthy of a page in Home Beautiful.
    I like the picture of your garden taken through the window as night is falling.

    2. I don't like those huge faux marble tiles, they're okay in grand hotels and really big mansions, but not for homes of regular people like you and me.

  5. It is going to be the best room in the house. The tile choice is good. I rather like the red grouting in the photos.

    1. They are a three tile, tile if you know what I mean and they have terra cotta base so thats the clay that's not coated but I like the colour so maybe will get a grout to match, or dark grey.

    Definitely the tiles will give it that 'hotel' finish - fabulous!!! I like the paintings as a 'dado' frieze too - very inviting! YAM xx

    1. I feel if someone paints something you should find some place to display it at least for a while.

  7. The grey tiles are going to look nice in your blue bathroom, Merle. Everything is coming along. Your fireplace is nearly 100 years old? Such a charming fireplace, and it reminds me of my mom's that I used to love. Yes, the pink skies are beautiful. It was nice to hear that you are one of my friends who is familiar with and likes Harry Potter. He's such a favorite in this house. :)

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Not as keen on the movies as the books but often find that when you read the book first.

  8. Your tiles are lovely and in keeping with the style used in federation houses. The paintings are great and putting them together as a mural might look fantastic.
