Moving right along on this room, a lot of prep work and paint needs to be done. I started off patching the giant holes in the wall. As I previously mentioned, the last owners damaged the wall pretty badly. When they removed a large built-in desk & Murphy bed they didn’t care to remove it properly. So I had my work cut out for me!
Here’s the before again:
The hole on the farthest left was the biggest. I started off by applying a couple layers of wall spackle. I laid it on pretty thick since I knew I would have to sand and re-texture this entire section.
Then once it was all covered and dry I sanded it down then re-textured. I used a spray can of re-texture you can find at any hardware store. Here’s the after.
Here’s the room all finished and painted.
Patch and re-texture walls. Add baseboard moulding. Paint walls & trim.
- Fix closet; the closet rod recently fell down.
- Install curtains.
- Get new bed.
- Redo old nightstand.
- Redo old IKEA Malm dresser.
- Finally decorate & style!
Till next time, enjoy!
