The Son's Room.

Blog entry by MarkTheFiddler posted 07-31-2012 08:28 PM 3555 reads 0 times favorited 10 comments Add to Favorites Watch

My son has one year of high school left. I have changed my plans for doing the house so we can get his room next.

Years ago I painted a mural on 2 of his walls. The wall paint we keep. I need to touch up the base color here and there but painting will not be a major chore.

Another minor chore will be to get the wobble out of his ceiling fan. It’s a nice looking, brushed nickel, Hunter fan so we are keeping it. It’s about 5 year old but I still see similar stuff in the box stores.

We are replacing the nasty carpet with floating laminate on the concrete slab. I will be installing new door trim and base boards. The window sill, closet doors, trim on the closet interior and door frame will be painted. I can’t think of a single thing I want to or need to add to the project.

And of course, there will be plenty of opportunity to take my caulking skills to the next level. Thanks to you all, I can do a good job. I’m still putting tape against the wall to keep the caulk off it. Let’s see if I can improve on my skills so caulking will end up being a quick chore.

Stuff Already done. –
Decorating is pretty much done from my part. I made him a bed spread, drapes and my version of a sham. We found some ones carpentry project at a thrift store. It looks like a wardrobe but opens up to be a super cool PC workstation. It had cheap hardware and was painted with a coat of primer. We stepped up the the original hardware, made a couple of design mods and painted it with oil.

I’ll try to grab a few pics of the room ‘as is’ tonight.

My son and a friend of his start demo on Thursday.

The best part of reading this was “My son and a friend of his start demo..”...lol
Glad to hear he’s willing to jump in and help out.

Gary, I agree with you. That is my favorite part.

I have a couple of murals to show.


Here is my victim at the desk I was talking about.

The door actually has a drop down side table. I’m telling you this contraption really has it all. Yet we paid a thrift store price.

It’s funny, this is the first time I have walked into his room to find it all cluttered. I’m not sharing the rest of the pictures but now you have an idea of what stays.

Nice mural. I’ve always liked perspective drawing/painting. Too bad they have to go.

It is very nice when the children pitch in. I always use the “bad back” routine. It usually gets me a couple of minutes of their help these days.

Be sure to document and post the changes. How long do you think it will take? Someone on HR used a time-lapse camera to show their work. Just an idea.

Hey Billy – oh no – those murals are staying. I’m just touching up the walls. In fact I had about half a cup of paint left so I started touching up with that. I think I’ll post a day one blog. By the way – no time lapsed camera but I love the idea.

Billy,

I forgot to mention. The perspective you mentioned is something I learned how to from a televised art class. It’s called vanishing point perspective. You put 2 spots on the sides of your work. Every single line you draw points to those dots. If you were to print out my images and use a straight edge to extend the lines, they would all intersect at one of the vanishing points.

My son said he would pay for someone to carefully remove the murals and redo the Sheetrock before I ever considered painting over them. My boy made me feel pretty good about it.

It great when your kids can help out. I’m having my 12 year old come to work with me tomorrow to help clean up after a floor demo. 4 layers of flooring, 1 1/2” of hell. It’s gone now and he’s going to help vacuum and pull nails and staples.
