Looking at the Design*Sponge website recently, I noticed that Brisbane was missing from their city guides - so I took it upon myself to email Grace from d*s to find out why (and offered to write the guide as well). Grace took up the offer, gave me a deadline, and here it is - the Brisbane city guide!

Well I arrived home today to find the house keys sitting on the side of the bath – all done!
We still have some plans for changes, such as repainting (this was the first room we painted after moving in, so it’s a little bit dodgy), new towel rails and a new mirror, but the big part is over!
Thanks to Paul Carta from Tamara Creations for his wonderful work. It’s turned out so much better than we ever expected, and is still in keeping with the original design of the bathroom.

With a bit of luck, by Wednesday we’ll be able to shower at home again. What a luxury!

When we bought our unit two years ago, the whole place was pretty structurally sound... except for the bathroom. Thankfully original 1970s mosaic tile floor was in great condition, but the shower/bath was another matter. The steel tub had previously rusted through around the plug hole, resulting in a substantial leak into the garage. The previous owners had done a patch-up solder job, but we knew it would only be a year or two before we had to rip the whole thing out.
