Wow. Why would anyone cover up such a beautiful floor?!

Oh wow! I am jealous! Looking into antique tiles for my hallway in new house and they cost a fortune for nice patterns and original tiles, well done!

Wow envy! That's spectacular. We pulled up the lino in our kitchen and got very excited when we saw the tiles, but when we took the whole lot off, big bits of it were covered over with concrete sad

Wow!!!! Amazing! I have bloody cheap shit laminate (was here when we bought) and concrete sad. I am proper jealous.

I love you thin looking chair thing too. Is it really thin? Where did you get it?

Chair is a carver that we go in a junk shop with another carver and 2 ordinary dining chairs. THe dining chairs fell apart but we still have the carvers.

Oh my lordy lord! I dream of finding that sort of thing under a carpet. Bloody hell - am so jealous.

Crikeyblimey Mon 12-Nov-12 19:41:20

I suspect "thin" was not a good description for me to have used re the chair. On one of the pics it is in the hallway (next to the stairs) and looks "shallow" in a good way - as in, it doesn't seem to stick out much.
