Introduction: [Purple] Living and Dining Room Makeover

Picture of [Purple] Living and Dining Room Makeover

A college friend who lived with me, suggested giving a new look for our living room.

The chosen color  for the wall was purple,  because the color should be calm, peaceful, visionary ...
because there lived only film students and as color therapy, this color was exactly what we needed.
First we thought  in fact  blue, for creativity. But we need calm to be creative. Right?

Then the work began:

-We took out the carpeting, because it was very old. Underneath was hidden a beautiful wooden floor.
We had to scrape the glue from the floor. My god how much work!

-The table and chairs ware brown and I painted them white.

-The shelving needed repairs, because the paint was worn and grubby,
and some shelves were broken.
We had a small carpentry  in the building. There we made the some new shelves and had much fun together. 

- I painted the corners of the walls, and my boyfriend painted the rest.

A few months later we need to move out  there. Shame!
But we enjoyed  our work on time.

Yes! Please do share! It is hard work to paint and remodel but so worth it in the end. I love my wood floors! Before and after pictures are awesome!

Now I'm in a new apartment , and it needs a nice makeover.
But this time, I got a contract for 5 years long.
Next weak the work begins here. Of course I 'll take pics.
