Remodel, Part 3: The Rest Of The Bedroom

I think the last time I updated about the grand remodel project that is my condo we had just finished painting half of the bedroom, after which we took a break for a couple of months before continuing. We had to move the bed to the other side of the room in order to work on the walls behind.

Now as I’ve said before, about 90% of the surface area of my place was covered in the same awful textured wallpaper that had to come down before painting could commence. Well the wall behind the bed was even worse as the previous owners had painted over the wallpaper (something that has been suggested to me numerous times as a short cut) and the result was like a particularly rough sandpaper. So that had to come down as well. Only, when I started to remove it, the paper started taking up huge swaths of sheet rock:

So I then had to go in and scrape off the bits left behind before I could go in and fix the cracks and resurface.

This all took a few months (as I move quite slowly on theses types of projects).

Well finally, over this past three-day weekend, I managed to finish the primiring and painting and rehanging of closet doors:

And last night, after we returned from seeing Pan’s Labyrinth (excellent) we moved the bed back to it’s original position and put the bedroom back in order.

Now all we have to do is get a real bed frame and side tables and it will look a bit of all right.

Next projects on the agenda: 1) Front hall closet and 2) Rehang doors in studio.

Stay tuned
