I am currently in the process of renovating my bedroom and giving it a fresh new look. My goal is to have everything finished before University starts again in November.
Phase one has been taking out all the furniture and sanding the floor. For some strange reason the last time that I updated the look of my bedroom I decided to paint the floor white. Not only that I decided to paint the floor very thick. That was okay, until it came time to actually sanding it and the amount of time and effort that is involved in removing it. :x
Removing the paint from the floor has not been an easy task and still one I am battling on with. It requires using a belt sander for the main areas on the floor and using a paint scraper near the walls or skirting. The belt sander has been starting to overheat a lot, so I find I can only do a small space (less then half a board) before having to let it cool.
Here are some pictures so far. Keep in mind I have been sanding, so it’s very dusty.
Once phase one is complete, I will then stain the floor boards wait for it to dry and lacquer them. That would take two – four days with drying time. Then I can move onto repainting the walls and setting up the furniture!
Here is a room I created in the Sims 4, that is kind of similar to the style I am going for. However my wardrobe, bed, rug, bookcase and a number of other things will be different, but I thought it was fun to make.
Because I have been so busy with my room I apologise that I haven’t been active on commenting on other blogs. I will find the time to return comments soon.
1. How do you have your bedroom setup?
2. When was the last time you renovated or updated?
3. Do you have a design trend or style you like?
