    The deciding factor was the fact that the outside edge to the tray has a lip which the glass butts up to and I would've had to cut the shape out of two tiles for it to fit snug. We chose the less fidly option as neither of us really know what we are doing :rolleyes:

    Well maybe not quite finished cos we just need to sort out the window instead of shoving cardboard up there each time we have a shower or bath - which incidentally fell down the first time I tried out the shower!!! You should've heard me! I shouted for my fella like I was being murdered à la Psycho

    Looks superb. A really nice job.

    It looks like a really arkwardly shaped room to work in too, so double well done :D

    The chair could do with a lick of paint though ;)

    Let's just say there wasn't a right angle in the entire room so we had to force things to fit :rolleyes: (I had to hide the spirit level from my OH.)

    Don't dis my chair :mad: it's 'shabby chic' and I won't have anyone say any different!

    Amanda, I love the New England style of your bathroom. That t & g matchboarding looks great. I've just bought some (not for a bathroom) which I'm planning to paint, but it's so full of knots I think I'll have to get a different type. I was wondering where you got yours - d'you remember the brand? Thanks.

    Cheers Nick,

    we got the t&g from Bee and Kew (...you know what I mean ;) ) and it was really good value - just £3.48 for a pack of 5 (but it wasn't the value stuff). It was a little knotty but we took a risk and didn't bother with knot sealant and just painted them with kitchen and bathroom paint with a sanding between coats and used caulk in any diverts.



    Thank you Chat Noir...a fellow Cardiffian I see :D

    hey Amanda, looks really good. A question for you though, what did you do with the floor, i looks like you just painted the floorboards? in some earlier pictures there looks like there are some gas between the boards, i later pictures these seem to be gone?

    :LOL: Breezer , I'm sure the p is not being taken!!!! Nor is there any gas between my boards :eek:

    Hi Ewans,

    we sealed the gaps using decorators caulk and painted over using Dulux Quick Drying Eggshell. Before everyone gasps in horror at this method, this does actually work ;) It drys to a tough yet flexible, rubbery seal and stays put...honest! It's back breaking tho and I got thru about 4 tubes!

    We've used this method all through our landing and two bedrooms and none of the caulk has fallen in and is proving to be hard wearing after 3 years so I would recommend it.

    Crikey! That's a grand job!

    having recently gutted and renovated my own bathroom, I can appreciate the graft involved!

    Top stuff. :cool:
