Finally the before and after bathroom photos

YES! at last we have a new bathroom. The builders finished on Friday with the painting, and we moved in on Saturday. Here is our lovely new vanity and tap set. We chose these taps because they are 'lever action" and so are easy to turn even with my hands. You can see how lovely our glass block window looks here.

Of course we took the opportunity to purchase new towels to match!

The shower cubicle was made as big as possible, and is a lovely sight to behold. Good bye clingy shower curtain!

In case you have forgotten, this is what was here before:

So glad to have seen the end of the purple bath and the icky brown and yellow tiles!

It took a long time, made a fair bit more mess than I thought, and yet it was still worth it. We love this house and plan to stay here for many years yet, so we see it as an investment in our lives.

In other news, we have inherited some lovely pieces of china from my DH's mum and dad, which have gone very nicely with the pieces I have already collected. I had some Royal Albert china which were 'flower of the month" pattern and also some pretty Queen Anne red and pink roses trios. The tea set from the Royal Albert "Country Roses" pattern sits nicely along side of these ones. I now have enough pieces for a very nice "Afternoon tea party" which I will hold just as soon as the Perth summer eases off a little. We have a very hot week ahead of us with temperatures from 36 degrees Celsius to over 41 degrees Celsius, and no end in sight.

I think there will be cold showers and iced tea all round for a while!
