A Sticky Situation

Sorry - I couldn't resist that as a title.

What I have learned today is that I will never pass my City and Guilds in floor tile laying. Sticky-backed floor tiles.

And I am running out of Sticky Label remover to clean my fingers :-(

I did the spare room bathroom at least 2 years ago - probably 3, which is why I have put this one off for so long.

It's a bit like that old music hall song, 'When father papered the ceiling'...

I don't know what the adhesive on the tiles is, but it's black and VERY sticky.

Last time I got it in  my hair and everywhere. Not doing that today....

And it's a very hot day. And I've just  broken the spacebar on this computer, so you may notice some very odd typing!

I think I'm going to leave it for now and take up the tiles I've done and just paint the contreplaquƩ (plywood).

It will soon be wine o'clock...

I've seen painted and slightly distressed plywood floors and they look great. But I imagine you are the one distressed right now!
