While we were on holiday, the carpenter and tiler were hard at work in the roomFKA the scullery.  Before we came home (and too late to do anything about it), I discovered that the tiler was going to fix the tiles in a brickwork pattern.  Aaaagh!  I thought.  (At least it wasn't aaaaaaagh! so it can't have been too serious).  But had I been asked before we went away, I'd probably have said we wanted them fixed the usual way ie in columns and rows.  But what do I find, when I eventually see them?  They look great!  And what's more, I think this is actually the 'normal' way to fix this sort of tile.

So here's the next stage in the great kitchen revival.

The worktop looks rather good too.  Just my painting left to do then . . .

    1. Thanks, MItch. I'm still at the stage where I think I could have done it better myself. But I'm warming to it.

  2. I am not sure what you were stressing about. It all looks lovely to me. We have such a dirth of clever tradesmen in this area.

    1. Thanks, Karyn. I suppose the point is that tradesmen have to finish quickly, otherwise the bill goes up. If I do it myself, I get it right however long it takes. But it's coming on.
