    Doh. Ummmmm our entire house got renovated / rebuilt from the inside out all cause DH pulled up the bathroom tiles ... sorry, but it's better to catch early and do it right first time, than to hope it will go away and have to redo everything.

    Hint: Go get a hand-held shower rose thingy (rubber) from the hardware / $2 store so you can have a hand-held shower in the bathtub.

    Good luck, hope it works out for you quickly!

    We went to change a tap, the bathroom sink broke into a dozen pieces. We had to go buy a new sink ($400 we didn't want to spend), none come in our original size (250x1200), so we have to retile part of the floor, but tiles don't come in blue anymore so we have to get black and paint the blue black, then the wall needs tiling, but the wall was getting wet from a hole in the roof, so we have reroofed the bathroom. Right now we have a sink siliconed back together, the new vanity is in the lounge and we haven't gone shopping for the black floor tiles yet lol (its that octagonal pattern with white tiles with small diamond shaped black tiles in the corners, not all black, before anyone screams about black bathrooms). We also need to scrub down the entire room and paint the bright blue walls and ceiling white, but it is the middle of winter and paint would take 3 days to dry in this weather, so it can wait a few months.

    If your bathtub is out of order too, same deal but in the KITCHEN sink, or the laundry if you have space. Get a blue clamshell from Kmart to stand in while you hose yourself off.
