Ensuite tiles are done

 Sorry for the late post. Life has been a bit hectic at the moment.

But here are the photos of the tiles up.

And I finished painting the first coat of black on the laundry door and I am loving it!!!
We will be working on the painting the archs in the ensuite so the tilers can come back and do the siliconing around the edge and doing the shelves etc in the walk in robe.

Bathroom vanity and laundry painting

Exciting things are happening at This Little Yellow House!

On Wednesday I did the first coat of colour paint on the laundry and gave the ceiling a freshen up with a touch of paint. The colour is the same as we used in the rest of the extension. Valspar Montpelier. Oh and we have a new door on the bathroom.
I did a little test paint on the door. I want it to be black but I think this may be too black. What do you think?
Dave removed the old architraves and skirtings from the bedroom and installed the new style (craftsman style) ones. Have yet to do the trim at the top though.
On Sunday, Dave's brother brought in the frame for the new ensuite vanity cabinet and Sammy helped him install it.

 So it looks like this at the moment.
More exciting news is that the ensuite windows are finally ready and Dave is driving out to pick them up after work today!!! Yay!

So he will install them this weekend and on Monday the tilers will come and start the tiling of the walls.

Last night after work, I picked up the new door handle set for the laundry door. It is in an oil rubbed bronze colour which is impossible to find in shops here and I had to order it from a fancy place called In2Lok.
It cost me $297 but it is super solid and should be great.

So hopefully this will be a productive week and there will be more photos to share soon.

Tiling at last!!

Finally I have some progress to share with my blog readers.

This week the kids were back at school and kindergarten so I had some free time on Tuesday morning so I got stuck into putting undercoat in the laundry.

It smells so fresh and looks so big now.

Then on Wednesday the ensuite tiling started. First he mudded in the shower.
Then yesterday they did the waterproofing.

When I left for work today, they were already there doing the floor tiles.

This week Dave added architraves to the doors and windows outside.

I am now excited to go home and see the tiled floor.

On Sunday the vanity will be installed and he will measure up a template for the marble top.

Hopefully the windows arrive soon and we can really get things moving. We need the windows in so we can finish tiling.
