Benches, tiles and 13 miles… oh my!

8 Jun

On Saturday morning, the other half had managed to nab us some free massages which meant we had no excuse for not being on form for tile and bathroom shopping. So post-massage we hit the tiles warehouses. We didn’t find anything we’re majorly in love with – but we have now got three firm ideas of what we want to do (one of the ideas involves having no tiles!) I’m definitely advocating a massage before any such shopping!

From there we did the epic journey of bathroom places, including a trip to Homebase and Ikea. We went to Ikea mainly to buy some more fabric (we didn’t buy enough last time for one of our refurb projects) and an overflow trap that they forgot to give us when we bought the sink. Being Ikea what we left with was fabric, overflow trap, a new sweeping brush, sweeties, lint rollers… and a bench! Now usually I’m not a big fan of Ikea but this new bench was as stunning as it was simple.

And this is me on the bench yesterday after walking half a marathon in practice for the moonwalk. Note the Lucozade bottle, pjs bottoms and the dazed stare…

    Lucky you getting a free massage!
    The bench is lovely and perfect for the space.
    Ahhh I love your flat. Amazing space.

      Aww thanks Polly. Not sure if we’ll keep the bench there… we’ve been looking for an old chaise lounge to do up and put there but so far it’s evading us. So the bench is a bit of a temporary solution but it’s just nice to be able to sit there and stare at things – that what the cats do all day! 😉

    I love how you can see the green and the misty beyond over the buildings outside your window – gorgeous!

    Lovely bench…what a dreamy spot to sit and ponder in…and drink Lucozade! I’m interested to know what you decide on for your bathroom.

      Thanks Kerry. One of my ‘posts in waiting’ is on the bathroom so far – and I was going to do one on what are ideas are… So you’ll get to know soon 😉

Leave a little love...
