Craft Room/Study: It's got to be P.E.R.F.E.C.T

The study/craft room is finished!

Its all freshly painted and waiting patiently to be filled with furniture odds n bobs.

I’m pretty sure we’re getting more fussy with each room. It had to be P.E.R.F.E.C.T. The ceiling was sanded and painted, the window and door frames were sanded and got an undercoat and 3 coats of white (see what I mean), the walls were painted with 2 thick coats of Mountain Peak.

The floorboards got filled, sanded and coated with Tung Oil and then recoated again in the places that the oil didn't take to until it was P.E.R.F.E.C.T! Now just to wait for the floors to completely harden so can move the furniture in. Takes a few days but better than to scratch the now P.E.R.F.E.C.T floorboards.

Hung up some shiny silver blinds and we are done and done.

Will show some before and afters once I've set it up nice n pretty. For now will share some of our tricks of the trade ...

This is the lazy mans paint stirrer - you just attach it to a drill and let it do the work (costs about $5 from Bunnings)

Yes that colour did turn into grey eventually!

And this is what you do when you have to paint again in a few hours or even the next day .... Bugger washing out the roller, just wrap it in gladwrap and stick it in the fridge and it stops the paint from drying out. Cool hey!

I'm so happy it's another room we have renovated in the house

Stay tuned for some before and afters of the craft room/study coming soon!
