I'm really proud of it as I did most of the work myself. A builder friend did the plumbing and a bit of carpentry but I did the wallpapering, painting, accessories etc.

Can I be nosey and ask where your new bath is from and what it's made of? Looks fab. grin envy

The bath is from Bathstore. I think it was called Cambridge and was £299 IIRC. It's made of layers of different materials (not sure what) but very tough.
The whole bathroom cost under £2,500 including materials, suite, builder, accessories etc.

Thats lovely Lyra (although I'm probably a bit biased as we have tongue and groove in the same colour in our bathroom smile).

Now its time to relax in that bath and survey your excellent work!
