This will be for our bathroom floor.
This will be our bathroom sink...it is one of those sit on top jobs, that I for one, really like.
This will be the shower floor. We will have a curtain not a glass door. Hate those. We will have to build a bit of a step to keep the water in The walls will be white tile with a dark green trim, the step will probably be the same green.
This will be the floor in the girl's bathroom. You have to work with me here a bit and ignore the plain tiles, only the blue ones will be down. They are a good size, 9 by 9 inches or so...
and this will be their sink. It too is a sit-on-top-like-a-bowl number, and I sincerely hope it will hide the toothpaste spit marks. Their bathroom will have a tub with a shower in and a curtain. The walls will be tiled white with a blue trim the same as the floor. They want blue paint. No problemo. The sink looks nicer in real life than in the photos.
The downstairs bathroom and the rest of the house will have the tile on the right which is the one that most closely mimics what we have already....The one on the left is machine made, the one on the right, hand made. The price difference isn't that big and we don't need many.
The sink in the downstairs bathroom:
We also have a problem in the main passageway which you can see from the street and, well, everywhere. We have to tear up a strip through the whole length as the drain runs under there. The drain, which drains the toilet as well, is a brick runway. Bricks are porous. Pause for a moment and consider the smell.
We have to tear it up. the problem is that the old tiles are old and we are not going to be able to colour match, so instead we are going to use tile work to make it look like it was always there. A kind of tiled carpet. Imagine my delight when I found these:
We'll make a pattern with those and it will look like a carpet.
In the dining room at the back, we'll have these on the floor:
Same pattern, deeper tone. Blue grey colour that I love.
In the kitchen for the doors, we'll probably use these:
and for the back splash I want to see if we can find something that will match the tiles that are in there already.
I didn't have a chance to eat breakfast before we went off, so I was a little hungry when we got back. We stopped at the corner store and picked up lunch. I had chicken stuffed with dates and bacon (OMG), espinacs catalanes, which is spinach with raisins and pine nuts plus veggies that looked pretty average but tasted amazing. I am not sure what they did. I'll have to ask.
Then I had a nap.
OMGoodness, life is shaping up pretty nicely today.
and most welcome too.
