Room Renovation: Phase Two

โš ๏ธThis post is 5 years old, please view details on older post content.

Phase two of my bedroom renovation is to stain the floorboards and lacquer them.

So far I have given the floorboards two coats of stain. I am very happy with the rich colour that it has given the boards and I think it will fit in well with the whole design.

The floorboards have been stained, still a bit of dust on the walls...

The only one problem I have had, is the time it is taking for the stain to dry. I know that this is due to the colder weather we have been having. Hopefully in the next few days we will get some warmer days and I can begin the lacquering.

Phase one was very difficult. All the sanding and scraping gave me a lot of hand cramps, but it was well worth it. I am looking forward to being able to finish phase two, and moving on to phase three; painting the walls. ๐Ÿ˜€

Questions
1. What colour floor boards do you like? (darker or lighter)
2. In the area I have for my study, I am considering some wallpaper, which do you like best: One, Two, Three or Four?

  1. It’s looking good! I can’t say whether I like light or dark floor boards better, I think it depends on what you do with the room as to when they look best.

    As for the wallpaper definitely #4! I’ve considered something similar for a wall in my bedroom but darker: This.
    I also like these two: One and Two but they might be a bit darker than what you’re after.

  2. Hurray for phase 2! I like the new color of the floor! It does look rich indeed. I like darker toned wood floors until it gets scratched XD. My floors at home are medium toned wood. I see #4 as the best fitting one :).

  3. I also agree that darker floorboards look nice! Light floorboards are great too but dark floorboards has that ~sophisticated feel, haha. I also couldn’t choose between any of the wallpapers. I’m so indecisive >< I'm sure whatever you end up choosing will look pretty.

  4. Looks like a rich colour indeed! I think I would prefer something lighter, personally. But well done to getting to this stage! Also, itโ€™s 24ยบ in Sydney today so hopefully you get some of that coming your way. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think I like the second wallpaper, the brown brick? It looks a bit โ€˜roughโ€™ but I prefer it to the white one.

    1. Thanks for your opinion on the wallpaper!

      I do like the look of lighter boards, but because of the painted white floor previously, I was scared of having anything too light. xD

  5. I definitely love the darker tone better! haha I suggest you choose a plain type wallpaper to compliment you flooring. Out of the four, I choose the white-brick one. It adds an industrial design feel to it ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. It’s looking great so far! I really like the color you have now, and I’ve always liked darker floor boards over lighter ones. As for the wallpaper, I’m a big fan of damask patterns. They’re both interesting and elegant looking ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. It’s so hard to choose between dark and light. I like the airy-ness of white, but it scratches and gets dirty easily. Dark is nice, it feels warmer and it doesn’t look grimy.

    I don’t think any of the wallpapers are what I would personally choose, but if I were to choose one of them it would be four – I like the pattern.
