Now with the closet completely redone, the walls and everything else repainted, it was all done in time for the arrival of my bed. Literally. Finished painting the day before the bed came.

There was still one problem I hated, the poor the lighting in my room.

After patching and smoothing down the walls by sanding. It’s ready for paint!Deciding on colour(s) to use is probably the longest part of the whole process. I ended up using two colours for the walls and a white for the doors, frames, sills, and ceiling. The two colours I went with are a khaki like colour that has a minor tinge of green to the darker one. The names of the colours were Pecan Tree, Sisal, and Kitten White. The two colours I used for the wall were to create some more dimension to the room. I applied the lighter colour to the larger walls and the darker to the smaller ones.

So after removing the wallpaper I had to make sure the wall was suitable to be painted. Unfortunately prep work takes the longest :(

Anyways patching is fun when you’re applying the stuff, but not fun when you’re sanding. Partially because I’m a total amateur and globbed too much of the stuff on in some areas.

Well a few months after Canada day, I decided it was time to redo the room entirely. I had ordered a new bed which wouldn’t be arriving for a few months.

Like the closet, my wallpaper was ugly and done pretty poorly by the previous owners. As a result I had covered it up with a collection of movie posters. I wanted to paint the room, so it was time to take that all down.

A little while back I decided it was time to redo my room. I call it a “renovation” however it’s more like a redesign or redecorating. Some Background: You see, the TV’s we have in our house are quite old. We have one of the first Sony Colour Trinitron TV’s from way back, in fact this TV is older than I am. As a result the TV doesn’t really go above channel 35 and as a result I miss out on some channels which are part of our cable package one of which is the Home & Garden Network. Sometime last year they re-numbered some of the channels and as a result HGTV is now on 29. All the home reno shows simply made me realize how simple and relatively inexpensive you can do things if you do them yourself.

So last ::wikipedia(Canada Day, Canada Day):: I decided to embark on redoing the closet. My closet simply sucked as you’ll see. Continue reading Bedroom Renovation Part 1 – Closet
