What we learned 2012!

Well guys, seen as its the beginning of a new year, we thought what better time to reflect on what we learned from 2012. So here it goes!

Firstly, we learned that we shouldn’t get our bathroom flooring laid by Franks the Flooring Store. Initially they did a diabolical job, and then sent the same guy out to assess/ rectify his own mistakes. Needless to say, when the guy attempted to fix his own mistakes – it became apparent he was in the wrong industry.

Frank’s the Flooring Store soon sharp sent two people to relay our black bathroom flooring. They did a fantastic job.

Secondly, we learned not to purchase a headboard via eBay. Our experience of purchasing a faux suede headboard via eBay was very disappointing. Not only was the headboard description wrong in regards to the upholstered material which covered it, but also the colour was not as described. On a positive note though, the diamanté crystal detailing to the headboard was very chic. In this instance, we learned that cheaper is not always better!

Thirdly, we learned that we love striped wallpaper. Just look how gorgeous our white furniture looks in our teal bedroom. The teal striped wallpaper is awesome!

Fourthly, we learned that the cats love to be in on the action, especially when it comes to DIY. Take Angel for instance, she couldn’t resist taking down the wallpaper that time when we redecorated the main bedroom. Diesel is more of the gaffa type, he observes the task in hand.

Finally, other than learning why you should NEVER leave kitchen appliances unattended, we learned that Kelly needed a new door mat for indoor use.

Frank’s the Flooring Store: bathroom flooring done and dusted!

Hey guys, just another quick update regarding our bathroom flooring. It has finally been sorted. Two professional floor fitters, from Frank’s the Flooring Store, arrived and cracked on with the job – doesn’t it look awesome?!

I had already removed the messed up flooring, along with all the silicon the first guy had used during an attempt to rectify his own mistakes.

We had a good bit of banter with the floor fitters, one of who was the same guy who laid our kitchen vinyl flooring three years ago. The guys used some kind of special bonding adhesive strips to bond our bathroom flooring (kinda like double sided tape). They stuck the adhesive strips around every edge, and then began laying the brand new vinyl.

They did a fantastic job and the straight edges they achieved illustrate just how professional these guys are! After they had left, Kelly and I decided to contact Frank’s the Flooring Store to thank Chris for all his help in resolving the issues we had prior.
