I am so pleased that my room renovation is finally complete. The final step was decorating and I had a lot of fun doing this.
There is still a few items that I want to add to, such as the owl lamps I like, storage boxes for the top of my wardrobe and cloud shelves. But these are only minor elements. I am really happy with how my room turned out. It is a very relaxing and calm space. I also finished it before Uni starts in November!
Goal complete. ?
The cord that is hanging down doesn’t look that attractive, it is wifi modem connection to the roof mounted antenna. I will find some way to have it discreetly displayed… You may also noticed in previous posts I talked about wanting to wallpaper the area where the ‘study’ is. I still plan to do that at some point, but it’s not a high priority. I have to get the socket and switch removed before I could do that and have it patched and sealed. The previous owners had installed a flood light that was so bulky and the light extremely bright. I am glad it was removed.
There you have it, my room complete!
So, how much did it cost me on the renovation? If I was good, I would have kept proper records so documenting it here would be easy. Nope. So, I have a rough estimate of how much it did cost in total. The price may be slightly higher or lower.
Floor & walls (including sander, sanding paper, stain, gloss and paint): $600 AUD
Furniture: $2188 AUD
- Pixel Rug: $159
- Wardrobe: $299
- Lamp Tables: $45 x 2
- Bed: $289
- Mattress: $380
- Bookcase: $159
- Jewellery Storage Mirror: $169
- Painting: $159
- Draws: $215
- Desk: $99
- Floating Shelves: $40 x 2
- Quilt Cover: $60
- Cloud Clock: $10
- Cloud Cushions: $10 x 2
I already owned the curtains and all other accessories that can be seen in the pictures.
So the total cost was around $2800 AUD. It may seem like a large amount, but I am happy with it because I have my room like I wanted. It could have cost a lot more if I had not sanded the floor myself. In the end, I am very content with the final result.
