Thanks Bbc!

Shower door isn’t clear due to the fact it’s open plan and you can see it a bit waking into the master. 
 

pink tiles are definitely controversial. 
j@ doesn’t like em, my site foreman didn’t then they were grouted and now he does.... EVERY SINGLE girl in my office loves them hahaha.... they match the pink bed that’s coming so it will all make more sense haha.

Then the boys picked their art work.... 

 

The first is Hudson who chose this big 1800x1200 hand painted piece which will go on his large charcoal wall to make a statement

And then William has the funny monkey, hand painted piece, going above his bedpan the mustard wall...

how low do you want your light fixture to your island? going to have to be pretty tall to reach into the middle of the island, too, it looks that big :P

There’s a bit of a magic formula for pendant drop lights and surfaces so this one is bang on the 810mm distance gap. 
 

Yeh the island is 2000mm x 2000mm and you can kind of never have enough bench space especially with a big Wog family that entertains often, it’s not that hard to reach to centre really ;)

I can’t reach the middle but I’m fairly midgety 😂😂

oh gee... I'm not a fan of those pendant lights, personally, with how low they recommend it to be... but I'm a big lanky POS that gets in the way of anything that's even slightly low so I'm a bit biased in that opinion :)

810mm... yikes... of course it's great sized for entertainment purposes; just ask the adults to bend over and get to the tiramisu in the centre hahahha

Funnily enough it’s loads of room. That means it’s nearly 1800 off the ground and it’s over an island... doesn’t matter how tall you are, if you bend over to grab something there’s no way you’d hit your head on it... 

 

unless you’re drunk dancing ontop of the island 😂😂😂

Ok so I was heavily questioned about my vision for our ensuite by J@ and today I got my vindication...

 

 

 

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTYPIGYRiBcQulaGj4KK0I

 

Finally the custom made cabinets and the lights arrived and it has transformed the space and j@ only hates it 40% instead of 120% so I am taking that as a huge win! 🤣

 

I will photo in stages:

 

Stage 1: The dreaded pink tile

Stage 2: Grouted and looking better.

Stage 3: Sinks, Tap wear, basins and lights

Stage 4: Custom Cabinets
