What I’ve Been Doing, Part Two

Due to time and money, we agreed from the beginning only to fix up the two living rooms before we moved in. That gave us about 9 working days (and nights) before moving day! Started off by spending a weekend pulling off many layers of old wallpaper. It’s an old building from 1906, and I’m not sure if some of the layers were that old, but we did come across some very nice (and very ugly) patterns. Holes were filled and walls were sanded – a job from hell that takes longer than you expect!  We had the floors done – sanded and treated with lye and white soap. They look sooo beautiful now and makes the rooms look so bright. After my dad helped us putting up glass felt, we just needed to paint. Beautiful white walls! We ended up moving in a few days before the rooms were done, as it all took a bit longer than expected. But at least we did most of it ourselves, and that’s pretty cool I think..

      ..To be honest, I’m not really looking forward to doing the other rooms! Think we might settle with the (ugly) sawdust wallpaper in the bedroom, and just paint the walls and floors – the easy solution. More pictures will come – stay tune :)
