In searching for a new name for this room BBB came up with â€œSupernova Loungeâ€ in response to Starsâ€™ 70k VPP gimme for me this year thanks to me being British. So that will more than likely be itâ€™s new name once Iâ€™ve made it to supernova, if i donâ€™t it may be called â€œFail Loungeâ€
Now Iâ€™m not going to show what this room was transformed from because, frankly itâ€™s embarrassing and only Lysistrata and anyone sheâ€™s shown the pictures to is fully aware of the lurking horrors of the timeâ€¦and the incredibly busto chair.
What I can do, however, is a kinda step by step guide AFTER Iâ€™d got rid of most of the crap from the room.
Long story short we had a set of mirrorâ€™ed wardrobes in this room and it hadnâ€™t been decorated in 15 years almost aside from a little paint and needed a full do-over. However removing the wardbrobes also pulled off a ton of plaster, half the coving and destroyed some of the skirtingâ€¦.I always hated that thing!!
The rubble left over after weâ€™d got the wardrobes out.
Hmm maybe we were a bit firm yanking off the wallpaper? Ouch
Carpet comes up and good riddanceâ€¦yeesh I got such burns from that thing.
Lining Paper is now on after weâ€™ve done our best to fill in the damaged plaster on the walls but itâ€™s not perfect
Laminate floor going down and first appearance of my version of Fail-Bear, â€œDrink Holding Pandaâ€â€¦.this time without a drinkâ€¦heâ€™s been slacking off.
Truth be told I just found it in the mirrored wardrobe obviously stuffed there many many moons ago and he was something made by my mother surprisinglyâ€¦thaâ€™s not a bought one thatâ€™s hand made!!
New Halogen lights replacing that horror shade
Wallpaper goes on far side of the room, the rest will be a single pattern which is a fatal mistake we wonâ€™t make againâ€¦NO PATTERNS!!!
Beginning to fill room with stuff. New chairs, projector, Playstation 2 (to be upgraded to XBox 360 based on performance at the end of the year) etc.
Projectorâ€™s On!! And I have CURTAINS finally!!
Theyâ€™re the speakers which arenâ€™t up yet but will be shortly. 500 Watt jobbyâ€¦should irritate the neighbours.
Focal Point, yup itâ€™s the projector screen. What a nightmare THAT was to put in. Had to go into the loft with various lifeforms I imagine live up there now and screw in another piece of wood to screw the damn screen into.
Canâ€™t not have a rug on a laminate floor :). Goes with the rest too.
Sub me for the panda and I think we have one relaxed Boomer.
Been a lot of hard work but Iâ€™m pretty sure itâ€™s worth it. Love it at the moment and Iâ€™m pretty sure once Iâ€™ve got all my tech gizmoâ€™s in here itâ€™ll be even better.
