Well ok then. As sooo many (two at least) people have demanded pictures of the new flat I have decided to post the pictures of the two rooms that have been more or less finished now. The office and the bedroom.
Like quite a few projects in this flat, painting of the bedroom started by trying to get rid of the huge blue square on the wall. The previous owners must have had some sort of a square addiction going on. Anyways, took about 3 layers of paint to get rid of it. The other wall got painted with a too light shade of green to start with (that paint will now make an appearance in the kitchen) but we saw the error of our ways and repaintend with a darker moss green, which is really nice and comforting in real life actually.
This room was supposed to be the guest room to start with, which is why we left it to be done later, but at the last minute I decided to put the office there and furious stripping of wallpaper commenced. By far the most laborious and boring job of all. Luckily Stu turned out to be quite skilled in this. 😀 The colour was a problem as well, as by then we’d already painted the guestroom (originally the office) duck egg blue and couldn’t really use the same colour in two rooms. We went for quite a light and perky shade of green, which turned out really nice. Makes the room kinda zingy to work in. The colour doesn’t really show well in the picture, since everything looks so dark because of the light coming from the windows.
So there ya go, two whole rooms to feast your eyes on. Don’t tell me I’m not good to you. =P
