My post today is about helping my Dad update a room in his condo. I use it when I am on the Coast but we are thinking toward the future so my thrifting was good prices on oops paint, doing the work myself and making my Dad happy.
I thrifted the bamboo blind ($2.00 this weekend) and I cut it to fit the window. The oops paint was $5 a gallon. Big saving. Rug on floor was thrifted, 50 cents. New to me blanket on bed was a $5 at a flea market recently. Furniture was already blogged about in older posts. Found a couple of etching prints too for $1.00
This post continues from where I left off the other day. Putting the laminate floor in and adding the moulding strips took all day and it was so worth it.
|Paint stir sticks make great spacers.Paint sticks were free, good deal.|
Took a break (sunshine, flowers to check out, fresh air).
Back to work.
Styrofoam to keep the heat in (I will cover it another day with some fabric), or perhaps hang a piece of art work on the inside and put something like wallpaper on the outside (I'll have to think about that).
|Room is looking totally different.|
|Rearranged desk, liking it. Thrifted bed blanket. Thrifted rug on floor.|
A small room but much more restful on the eyes, and removing the carpet is going to make it easier to keep dust out of the room, and it is an update for Dad's condo.
|My Rooster shelf coat hook going to brighten it up soon. The rooster coat hooks were thrifted for $3.00, a heck of a deal.|
More to come another day when the entire room is settled down
