Bathroom 22/02

small update from over lunch:

Managed to go some way to improving the white/creme issue by adding mrSkyPortals at the windows.

Added a towel rail too. I know the towel sucks it's only temp :-)

Anyone care to share the best way to texture a bath mat, so you get the shag pile effect?

Any comments as always welcome.

Rob the builder

Over the past few weekends in preparation for spring I've been making a planter for our garden.

I'm actually quite surprised by my own skill :-)

Made from old pallets and pond lining. Now I just need to go dig up some soil to fill it.

A touch of me to our house

After much debating I finally won, and got to put my new canvas prints up in the house :-)

Bathroom 01/02

Hi all,

So i'm taking a little breather from my Ford GT40 project. Fear not, I will be returning to it, just need a break from it to get some inspiration and hunger for max back with a different project.

I've decided to make a start on another interior for my portfolio, this time out I'm going for a bathroom.

About 35mins work over lunch today. So far just blocking out the room dimensions ect... plus trying to get a rough idea of lighting.

As always comments and crits welcome.
