Totally Gorjuss Challenge 18 - DT - Flower Power

Good evening, hope you are all having a great weekend. We are in the middle of doing up our bathroom at the minute, well I say 'we' it is more my husband with me overseeing. We have been in the house 3 years and the bathroom was awful, all blue and white tiles with shells and things on but the saving grace was the bath suite itself was white and perfect so we don't need to change that. We pulled all the tiles off and last week filled in lots of holes and my hubbie today bless him has sanded down all the walls and they are pretty good now but he was covered from head to toe in dust afterwards! Anyway the fun begins now as it is paint time and I have chosen some gorgeous mosiac glass tiles for around the edge of the bath and over the sink - couldn't afford to do the whole room at £50 a pack !!! but I love them so it will be worth it. New taps and accessories are all on my list and hopefully by the end of April we will be done ... have to get a bit each month but it will be worth the wait, I am very excited about the whole thing, can you tell !! Anyway enough of my babbling and onto a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss, Net chose 'flower power' as the theme this week so it was perfect for me as I love my flowers and I couldn't resist paper piecing her dress. Hop over to the blog to see all the other ladies gorgeous cards and to join in the fun.

    I am sure your bathroom will look gorgeous when it is finished and as you say well worth waiting for.

  4. Gorgeous card Suzie and ditto with bathroom. Decided yesterday, I'd had enough of the grotty wallpaper, so off it came! Been to B&Q this morning to look at tiles, came home and hubby got to work, we now have no floor tiles or wall tiles, it's really inviting, lol.

    Like you say will be worth it.
