So much has happened in the last week, all because my Mum came to visit . She is a whirlwind of energy, clearly she's to blame for my madness. Anyway i have so much to post i am going to start with the bathroom. Firstly here are a few inspiration shots. I have talked about wanting to go down the route of brass fixtures and fittings. Something different than the proliferation of chrome, i was a little worried that i wouldn't like it, but what the hell i went for it. I ordered fixtures on line from images, again a little nerve raking as things are never quite what you see when they arrive, but i was really pleasantly supprised, thanks ebay and china for not failing me. The budget as always drives these decisions, to try and find the best look i can at the best price, or the price i can afford

I had origianly planned on simply painitng the exisitng bathroom and just installing the new sink in the adjoning room outside this bathroom, eventually the two rooms becoing one. The little sink in the bathroom area pictured would be removed. This woudl be when the new bathroom goes in upstairs, who know when that will happen. But obviously curiosity again got the better of me and i pulled the ceiling down.

|The grey wall in the bathroom. Again i am in love with this color. AND look at my taxidermy quail. He matches the stone and the wall to perfection. Who doesnt want to clean their teeth and hang out with a dead bird..|
|and a dead antelope. Again i had to rip off the wood covering that old beam as well. I must admit if i wanted to live in one room it would be this one!|
|Already there is a few new additions.. some creepy old men photos to go with my dead animals..heaven.|
