I’m making progress on the house health club, though I’m on the level the place progress is transferring alongside fairly slowly as a result of I’m engaged on the trim. I now have the entire trim put in, and it’s all wooden crammed and sanded. At this time, I hope to begin on caulking the entire trim in order that I can begin portray it on Thursday.
I additionally spent a while doing a little wall repairs. If you happen to’ll keep in mind, I really tried putting in crown molding on this room alongside the longest wall (i.e., the wall between the house health club and the grasp lavatory), after which determined that I didn’t prefer it. Effectively, due to the way in which that crown molding is put in (nailed into the wall and the ceiling, with the totally different instructions of nails creating stress that helps to carry the crown in place), eradicating crown molding inevitably damages drywall. I had already carried out one coat of drywall mud on these areas, however they wanted one other coat, together with some sanding.
As soon as that the entire prep work is completed, particularly caulking the entire trim, I’ll be capable to get the entire trim and wall touchups painted, after which I can really begin on some ornamental stuff!
Talking of ornamental stuff, and due to your whole enter, I’ve determined to construct two shelving models, put them on casters, and have them flank a chest of drawers within the heart of the closet space. I hope to discover a chest of drawers on Fb Market or some other place native, and simply paint it. I’d relatively not should construct one. After which I’ll mount a TV on the wall over the chest of drawers.
I’ve determined that every thing that goes into the room will probably be black and darkish stained wooden. I just about let my Water Rower decide that call because it’s a ravishing walnut with black accents. So the cabinets have black helps (each vertical and horizontal helps) with stained walnut colour cabinets. If I’ve sufficient walnut veneer left over from the toilet, I’ll even use that for the cabinets.
Many months in the past, I had already chosen a black flooring for the room, in order that works into my black + walnut plan very nicely. I additionally bought black curtain rods (sure, I will probably be hanging curtains in right here as a result of y’all know I really like material!), and simply final evening, I made a decision to hold the Rustic Walnut Bamboo Shade that I used within the lavatory into this room as nicely. That shade is such good high quality, and it’s so much like what I’ve in the remainder of the home, however at a a lot decrease value, so I made a decision to go for it. So as soon as it’s all put collectively, my home windows will go from trying like this…
To trying like this…
I do know that there will probably be many ranging opinions on that (the black curtain rod, protecting up among the stripes, and so forth.), however I believe it’ll look very good as soon as it’s all carried out, and it’ll make the room cohesive with splashes of black and walnut all through the room. I believe it can additionally take the partitions from being front-and-center and the principle characteristic of the room to appearing extra as a backdrop, which I believe Matt will respect. So the partitions are for me, and the entire black and walnut is for him.
However that brings me to the entry of the room. Once we moved this wall again (which made our hallway smaller and squared up the grasp lavatory), that made the doorway into this room fairly lengthy. And it’s additionally darkish. I didn’t even assume so as to add a lightweight right here, however I actually assume it wants one. So I’m conflicted. It looks like an ideal space to place a semi-flush ceiling gentle, and that will give me a possibility to convey some black into this space as nicely (though, I’ll do this with what I placed on the partitions as nicely).
The opposite choices is to place a brilliant skinny “recessed” gentle, like I’ve all through the room. However that appears somewhat boring to me, and like a wasted alternative, proper? I’m leaning in the direction of the semi-flush ceiling gentle except somebody has an excellent purpose I shouldn’t do this.
After which there’s the door colour, which I do know I introduced up a very long time in the past, however I’m nonetheless conflicted over. The entire doorways within the hallway are a darkish teal. There’s none of that colour on this room, so I don’t wish to convey that in there. The doorways within the lavatory are white, however I don’t like that for this room.
So since I’m making an attempt to make use of black accents on this room, what about portray the doorways black? What will we take into consideration this?
I believe that appears good, and provides a contact of sophistication to juxtapose the colourful striped partitions. It’s simply paint, so I supposed I might strive it and see how I prefer it. And if I don’t, I can at all times transfer on to one thing else. I’m simply not fairly positive what different choices there are.
