Bathroom DIY

Posted by Sara on April 26, 2009

This year I learnt how to put tiles on a wall. It was much more fun than I expected and I’m petty chuffed with the results, although – as with any of my DIY projects – it seemed to take weeks longer than it should have done!

Here’s the before:

And here’s the after:

Anvil are a small group of Brighton based artist blacksmiths who specialise in hand crafted contemporary and traditional metalwork. Check out the web page, the sculptures are amazing. The tiles come from The Tile Depot.
