Next time I will get a tiled floor without a border or buy the tiny mini tiles and lay them one by one.

I'm going to now sit down (cos my knees are so sore from kneeling all afternoon).

Rant over.

thanks for listening!

Hi Sylvi - isn't it a pain I did the same thing but in the hall! I ended up having to colour some bits in the corners of borders because of shape of hall. I am very impressed with your kitchen it is looking lovely the floor looks a very neat job. Well done and I liked the big picture - didn't strain my eyes. Can't wait to see how it progresses.

Luv Val

Thanks Val, yes it was a pain, there is a little bit in the corner that I'm not completely happy with but it was my first attempt.

Think everybody is the same - I am sure we can all see our little mistakes and then magnify them - whereas nobody else ever notices.
