This is my first time doing a post about this room, my office/guest bedroom. It was painted this chocolate brown color like 7 years ago, a long surface was brought in as a desk and I loved it! It worked nicely as an office but soon after we had a guest so a small bed was also added on.
The bed was taken in and out of the room many times. The issue was, bringing it up and down the basement was not easy that's why it's being here for the past two years.
Having the bed in here made the room too crowded. I didn't like to work in there. It became our "storage room" - Something we didn't like, it went there. I got two extra windows... hmmm maybe for the office I thought (and no, I didn't like them in there), but anyways they stayed.
Lately, the person who uses this bedroom is my husband. The guy snores badly so this is the place he gets refuge from my kicking and pushing to stop him from snoring :(
This is the way he decorated the window :D That's one more reason I didn't like to get in there. I didn't want to mess up his drapes.
This is the roman shade beneath all that mess. He complains I did a pretty lousy job on this shade because light comes thru the sides and that's why he needs to cover the whole thing. :/
Well, I have finally decided to give this small room a makeover, not that I really want to, but a visitor, one of my nieces is coming over, and I don't want her all depressed in this room. She is coming in two weeks and I'm just starting! Talk about pressure :/
Last week I kept on working and working but I still have nothing pretty to share. :( The first thing to be removed from the room was the bed, well temporarily, she needs to sleep on something.
Then, those old computers, one of them is full trash, the other still holds my accounting program, so that one needs to stay, at least for now. Look at all the cables... and dust!
In order to remove the desk's top surface, the chair rail had to be removed first. Ha, all the chair rail around the room was removed. I had to give myself a pat on the back for not using glue on it. It was fairly easy to remove.
However, the wall had to be patched after removing the strands of caulking attached to it.
All of this is easy to do, but it takes time. Two coats of spackle, some times three coats and waiting for it to dry. Oh, plus the sanding between coats, until everything is perfectly smooth.
Since I was trying to cover a dark colored wall, I turned to my trusty brand-> Kilz to prime it, two coats and it was ready for paint.
My next target: The yucky carpet.
You see? Lots of work besides the regular household chores and still nothing pretty. Oh, I also spent time in the garden doing some planting. My SIL gave me lots of little plants after she cleaned up her garden :) I'm now waiting for them to grow, that's exciting!
