« Part 2: Getting Somewhere Part 3 of The Daughter's Room series no next part

Painting, flooring, hardware, trim is done. You may remember that I built the door trim from scratch. The shoe molding is also mine. Baseboards, I bought.

The design for the simple murals started from my head but they don’t look anything like I started with. My daughter kept refining it. What’s cool is Victoria, picked all her colors, the style of the murals, the location, size color combinations etc. She made her own templates for the edges and picked which edges I used for each mural. She even got in there and did some painting. That slowed me down quite a bit but she had a great experience. I did nix quite a few of her color choices but she was thrilled with her ultimate combination. Even though the murals are not my first choice, I think they came out nice.

I didn’t let Victoria pick the flooring because I found good looking, prepadded laminate at Lumber Liquidators for $1.50. All I had to do was lay down a moisture barrier. I cut all the flooring with a table saw and basic sled with the exception of a couple of spots around the closet floor. I used my Dremel to get some precise curves.

I’ve got to build some good attractive storage. Good and attractive are difficult for me when it comes to woodwork but I’ll do my best.

Here are some some shots of where the room is now.

Mark – very nice. I like the combination of colors. Everything works with the flooring. Nice price, btw. The room is turning out very nice. Keep posting your work, I’m getting a lot of ideas!

Thank you Billy. Now I get to try and do something that you and Gary seem to excel at. I’m intimidated about making firewood out of expensive stock. Lord knows – I’ve done enough of that lately.

Bed frame – coming up!

This is a beautiful home project! Without any heavy equipment required, this room has been made over into a personalised haven. I especially loved that you let your daughter be involved in this project. When I was redoing the interior design of my house with my three boys, it was the best experience I could share with them. Throughout that time, there were lots we taught one another, and it was just a heck of a lot of fun. I hope you’re sharing that with your daughter. Of course, it’s also important that she’s learning at a young age how fulfilling it is to create things that are uniquely hers, instead of just buying default items off the shelves.

Thank you Christopher!

Very kind words and compliments. We still haven’t finished up the room, but the entire house is getting closer every day. My little girl has had her hands on every project thus far. She loves her contributions. When her friends come over, she says my dad and I did that.

Thank you Much Dean! She is enjoying it. She and her friends spend hours in that room. I like the laminate for a lot of reasons. 1) Cheap. 2) Easy to install 3) Easy to remove. Thanks for the extra point about slippage.

Please share your work when you get around to it.

I did some carpentry work over the holidays for my kids’ storage cabinets and thought of putting some color to the doors. My kids love it. We all worked together to make sure that everyone loves the color scheme and that it matches the home.

I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before. https://www.HubJOKER888.com
