New Bathroom

While we were overseas we had our bathroom remodelled. It just started out as having the shower floor repaired, but since we were having the shower replaced, I wanted to get a new, bigger bathtub (coz I like me a nice big tub to soak in).

See, the old bath was really small:CIMG5955

Once we were getting a new bath and shower, it meant a lot of re-tiling, and once you re-tile parts, it's worthwhile to re-tile the whole room, as it's almost impossible to get tiles that match ones bought in 1980 (when the house was built; mmm salmon pink!).

I went for an underwater theme; more "deep ocean trench" than "seaside". The plan is to paint mermaids and seaweed on the closet doors. I got a great big enormous bathtub - it's long enough to fully lie down in, extra wide and 57cm deep! I can well imagine being able to give birth in there, and there's plenty of room for two ;)

We decided to to the painting ourselves, so that's been our project the last couple of days.
