working on spare room part 1 : window

as have finaly started on working on the sorting the spare room i thought it be great for sharing easy diy tips. so here is how i decorated the window edge.

work on the room – picture wall continued

so been continuing on the picture wall.  but sadly i ran out of cards.  i thought the ones i had will be enough but clearly no lol.  this is as far as i got
image

large area is covered but as you can see there is still a bit to go.  i just gona order bunch cards from ebay again.  and be done in no time.  plus i thought i would fill the areas above doors too
image

just to kind ow have a bit of runing theme trough the room.  thought that would look nice.   and wile i will wait for the cards i have christmas to go trough and if have spare moment then can do the doors. 

work on the room – the picture wall

so finaly properly started the picture wall.  but sadly i couldnt finish it today as ran out the glue i used but be easy finishing tomarrow. 

this is what i done

i used wilkinsons own all purpose glue.  i tried out pva to start with but it took for forever to dry and cards kept bending so i thought i try this and it worked great
image

all i done is go over the card couple times  leave it sit and do a couple more same way then go back to first and stick on wall.  then put glue again etc etc

as said i did not finish the whole wall.  this is how far i got

i think its coming together great.  and will look wicked when finished. 

work on the room – window and th side bits that need fixing

finaly had bit moment to do bit on the spear room again so it starting to come together.  this time i wanted to sort the window and all the side bits and bits around the door just get it moving. 

for this i just used some white emulsion form wilkinsons that i had left from last year in uni and just a large brush
image

as per usual mix the paint up
image

for this i didnt use a tray just dip the brush in emulsion and paint away
image

image

i started ount on the wall with the cards too but i want get it finished before i post about it.  it will take longer than i expected with the cards but im planing to get it done this week so at least the main bits are done. 

work on the spear room -walls

moving on on the walls i thought they are pretty good condition but like there is just like some bits where i have had paint on them or something so i thought i make them a bit more textured and generally bit better looking i thought ill just sponge them over.  as one of the walls will be covered with postcards i left it as it is.  so for this i just got this round funky sponge from a discount store
image

and the paint that i used is same color as the walls were to start with.  blossom white once again dulux
image

i just shook the pot a bit and then mixed it up with a stick so its nice and even as it been sittting fir a wile
image

and just simply start diping the sponge in paint and put i on the wall
image

image

i think it gives wall a tiny bit of texture.  i think this would look great too going over with multiple colors.

remember after finishing if you dont use gloves then wash the emulsion off with some warm watter and soap and use some hand cream as emulsion will make your hand ssupper dry

start on the spear room – celling

so i have finnaly finally started in the spear room as this is how im doing it  celling first –
image

so this is quick kind look of the room.  it is just 1 corner mainly for showing the celling porpuses. as you can see the room was tottaly emptied and all the lights have been taken down.  dont forget to tape down the wires to avoid electric shock. 
image

next a beautifull look of my self lol.  just say always always cover the hair especialy if painting celling cos that stuff flys right into your hair and its rips everything out and it aint a good look. 
image

for celling ill be using the jasmine white by dulux.  its the same color i used at the very very start.  always love dulux its good quality stuff not too pricey ither plus i love that like in homebase and like b&q they can mix u up all these magical colors its like heaven land for me lol.  but moving on.  i just got the set of roller from wilkinsons cos well its cheeper than buying just rooll bits them selfs. for celling i think its great to use like 1 the long handled ones but as i broke the one i had i had to stick to the short one and stand on bench like this. ..
image

in other words dont use chair like this.  its very very very unsafe lol but well we dont really have chairs period so this had to do. 
image

then just mix up the paint with some stick 
image

and get rolling. 
image

in end i did end up bring in a light as it is fall time in the end so gets dark quickly meaning one cant see what one is doing.  but i did finished it and looks lots better as there seemed to be some weird dark lines where now its all nice and in one color.
