Its Day 3 or 4 of our Room Revamping project.

I know I fast forwarded, but can’t be help, I couldn’t find anytime to squeeze in updates. Sorry!

However, I did take snap shots of our daily progress! 🙂

Before I begin my update, let me share with you my excitement on the new furniture that’s coming in soon…

Wardrobe:

At the current moment, we are done with 2 sides of the wall, as our customize wardrobe by Amare La Casa, is coming in 3 days time!!! Yippee!! Really super excited for it to be installed as well as how it’ll fit into the new colors of the room. Actually I believe there isn’t much to worry abt, since we chose full length mirror for both sliding doors, to maximize the space as well as to make our room look bigger. And With the full length mirrored door we dun ve to worry any fixing up a separate mirror.

Besides being Able to choose the type of door we want, we are also able to choose waterer kind of shelving and hanging system we want. And all this for jus $1500! And it’s a made to measure wardrobe whereby all space are fully utilize for storage. How great is tht? 🙂

Bed:

Our bed on the other hand will only arrive on the 7th Jan unfortunately. We ordered a Lotus Mattress, with its outer shell made in egyptian cotton (one of the finest cotton ever- as told by ‘Pierce’ from Mattress Atrium). Besides the mattress being one of the highlights of this project, the bed post tht came along with it is also the other thing I am extremely excited to see. Becos we were able to customize the choice of material as well as colour of our bed post. And we made the Base of the bed much higher than the typical type jus so tht we could store large items (i.e. Luggage) into the queen size bed. Simply becos we have no other available floor space in the room, so if we can’t go side ways, we’ll have to go upwards! 🙂

Here’s a picture of the color of cloth and material we chose for our bed post. Yes, not faux leather, suede, or PVC, and no crystals embedded into the paddings. I don’t like any of those. Well I had wanted wood for the bed post tho… But there wasn’t any… And Jono doesn’t like wood frames, so we chose this material. Hopefully it turns out alrite. We wanted something cosy, simple yet classy I suppose.

It’s the one that looks gold.

Did mention that I am so so excited and I really can’t wait for the bed to arrive?!
Oh and we even bot 3 sets of bed linen for it! But that’s another post for another day!

Oh yes! I’m suppose to update about the progress of the room so far. Here it is….

Prepping the wall for base coat and paint to go on.

– plastering the cracks and holes in the wall.

– done with plastering, begin layering the base coat to cover up the plaster as well as cover up the old paint work. Yay! Off with the old and ugly color, IN with the new and classy color.

– done with the 2nd layer of base coat, and on goes the main color, in this case its “morning dew”. Its hard to judge from this pic, cos if you look at it in person it has a tinch of green in the cream. Btw the palette we chose for our room were selected from the Jotun paint range, eventho Nippon base is used and mixed in to create a Nippon Paint with Jotun color. Reason being: we were unable to find any nice colors from the Nippon range. So the uncle was very kind to do a special mix for us, and also becos I was sulking like crazy, since I didn’ mind using Jotun instead of Nippon.
