DIY weekend




Well the bathroom is done at long last, i have had the stuff since last October,now that's not like me i am usually raring to go as soon as i get back from the shops but for some reason i held back i didn't want the mess before Xmas so it has only just got done i didn't think it was destined to get done as hubby took down the bathroom cabinet a big hole appeared but thankfully my son is a dab hand at plastering and i had to wait a day for it to dry so that done i managed to Finnish it i am showing before and after as i cant quite make my mind up as to which one i prefer and i would like to hear your comments please ladies. Why is it you do one room and the whole house is a bomb site so lots of tidying up as i am having an operation on Wednesday,of all things i am having a gromit fitted and some exploring is being done its something little ones have done.I went quite deaf last year so this is the result,so if you drop by please speak up as i am a bit hard of hearing LOL . Well Tabetha turned two on Saturday, the time has flown by heres a picture of my little princess on her big day,thats all for now have a safe and cosy week PAT

Wow - that black/white scheme is amazing. The curtains look great too.

I also liked the 'before' bathroom as I love toile prints (did you peel it of carefully and can pass it this way - ha ha).

Your grandaughters dress is fab. It looked so nice before but even better on that lovely little one!

Hi Pat!

Happy belated birthday to Tabitha! I love your bathroom! So classy! Isn't it amazing how different the room is with just changing the walls and the curtains? Very nice job; I'm glad you had someone to help do a professional job on the plaster. I prefer doing the "pretties" rather than the fixing!

My prayers will be with you on Wednesday.

A lovely makeover Pat; the black and white scheme is very smart. I must admit, though, that I really liked your before pictures as I do love toile patterns!
Glad your op went okay,
