1  need ideas for covering a bathroom wall in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by FoxInDocs on: January 06, 2012 03:45:33 PM
So, Hubby and I bout this house a little over a year ago. It's small, but it's just the two of us.

We have this tiny little ugly bathroom, that's very impractical and has no storage (really, none, all my stuff is in cardboard boxes in the bathtub).

As it's just the two of us, we have no intention to have children, and neither of us is really into taking baths, we want to get rid of the bathtub, and put a proper vanity unit there instead, and we want to get rid of this weird little sink altogether (excuse mess):



however, that's going to leave a great gaping hole in the tiles.

i've accepted that the floor will need to be retiled after we take the bath out, but this is not a top qualiy home, and i don't want to spend $15,000 on a full bathroom renovation (even if i had that much money lying around) i just want to give it a freshen up and make it more useful.

So, we don't want to retile the whole bathroom, but we will need to cover up that gap. the chances of finding the same tiles, given that the house is 40 years old, is very slim, so i need some ideas for alternatives.

The only thing i've thought of so far is to insert a mosaic of some kind, but it might look a bit like i've stuck a bit of paper over it that says "no hole here!"

P.S. i'm thinking of keeping the floor brown, 70's as it is, but painting the top half of the wall a darker green and going for a rainforest theme.

2  Yet another Record Handbag (or purse for you american types) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by FoxInDocs on: August 27, 2010 04:41:59 PM

First of all, I appologise for the dodgy phone pic's.

I think it's fairly self-explanatory. i used red vinyl/pleather on the outside, and a cherry-print cotton for the lining, and some plain black fabric from an old pair of pants for the outside's that're covered by the records. i used spray-adhesive to stick the records to the bag, and then stitched it on via the usual melted-holes method, with upholstery thread.

the handles are chain, woven with velvet ribbon.

3  My First Bento :-) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by FoxInDocs on: April 05, 2010 05:32:01 AM
So, I was reading a lot about bento today, stumbled on it from some cooking site i was looking at, and i thought my hubby would appreciate it, and since it's his birthday tomorrow and the poor thing has to work, i thought I'd give it a go!

also, being Easter weekend, *everything* was shut all weekend, so not only is this my first attempt, it is also made from whatever i could find laying around... so it contains some rice, leftover roast beef, cocktail spring rolls, carrot sticks, green beans and some tamagoyaki, the recipe for which i found on justbento.com. I don't think the ratio's are probably correct, but i think it'll be tasty... anyway, here it is:
