Dining room (30Oct11)

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

We decided to start using the dining room as a lounge again as it is easier to keep warm and it looks like there will be a delay with the plastering.

Even without the plastering finished it’s 100 times better than it was!

Please excuse the colour combinations…..


Carpet tiles (27Oct11)

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

We put down some carpet tiles in the dining room – need to clean them but makes a difference not seeing concrete on the floor.

These pictures are rubbish because it actually looks quite nice in the flesh…

Finally grouted the fireplace. I started yesterday but ran out of grout.

Fireplace tiled (08Oct11)

Finally finished the tiling – a few of the earlier tiles came loose for some reason so will give it a few days to properly dry before grouting


Almost tiled (07Oct11)

Friday, October 7th, 2011

I have almost finished the tiling but ran out today – about 10 tiles short.

Not really done a lot this week. I filled gaps in the cupboard ready for painting and refitted the boiler cupboard doors, thats about it…………


Fireplace (02Oct11)

Sue managed to get some red quarry tiles reduced buy 70%!!…love a bargain. Have been pondering how to fit them and laid a few. it would have been nice to do a mix of red and black but they had no black and it would have wasted a few tiles. I think what we have will look appropriate. Quite difficult to work out how to do the curvy bits but will see how it turns out.

Ready for tiling (01Oct11)

Sue has gone to see if she can find some cheap tiles similar to a quarry tile – not really sure what would look best but it can always be redone at a later date.
