Renovations of my room.

2014-01-23

We finally started to renovate my sewing room after New Years. It had badly painted cardboard paint, an old cork plastic carpet and an uninspired feeling. This photo shows before, when I’ve moved out most of my things.

 

This little flowery 80ies paper was underneath the horrible paint.

 

The previous owners of this house had just put putty over screws instead of removing them before painting the walls, not smoothing it out either.. it truly looked bad. I probably removed over 10 screws, then applied putty and smoothed it out so you can’t see the holes any more.

 

I also painted the radiator which had turned a dirty grey. It was not fun to paint with all those lines, but now it’s white.

 

Matt painted the ceiling and then we got started on the walls, white white white.

 

And here comes the lovely wallpaper I picked out. It’s by ISAK called Nova Dawn. I bought it from tapetorama.se and it arrived within 5 days I think. The site said 1-2 weeks so brilliant service. I also ordered a sample which I got within a day so I could pick out the right white colour for the walls. Will definitely order from them again if we need a certain wall paper.

 

And here is the wall all ready. We are putting in new floor this weekend, it’ll be a light oak floor. And then it’s time to find furniture!

I have wallpaper! I went for the Nova Dawn from ISAK. It looks very lovely. My floor is being laid next weekend, so I have to wait another week until  I can sneak into it with all my stuff.
I’m in need of storage things. Shelfs and things.

And I still don’t have PS, feeling so empty.

I have to include these cats, I made them for Joni (my brothers kid). She’s been talking a lot about my cats so I thought it would be perfect if she could have them at her house as well. They are just more well behaved than the real ones.

Matt gave me a new computer. It contains of things he didn’t need when he upgrades his computer, and something new, and some from my old one. It is better than my old one which has been growing grey hairs.

A little problem is I do not have PS or Illustrator. I can’t edit photos.

We are also ‘working’ on my rooms renovation. I’m doing ” because we are waiting for the wallpaper still so we are in no rush. I just got a wallpaper sample so I can buy the right white colour for the other walls. That should happen this weekend.

‘insert edited photo here’

It feels really empty without PS.

Also, I made the huge mistake to install The Sims 3, to see how this computer liked it. And it liked it way to much.
