Paint work

June 25, 2011

This is what happens when you disconnect from the internet and from socializing – all of a sudden there’s a hallway’s walls and floor being painted. Next up is to cover a whole room of Rauhfaser wallpaper with putty and get a plain surface.

    I love the floor colour!

    I found I was so much more productive for a while after I ditched my tv….then I found the internet.

    Hours pass so quickly!

    I use this trick of 'unplugging' myself from the internet completely at least for 1 day each week and it's amazing how much work gets done on that day 🙂
    Love the floors, can wait to see what else you're going to do with your place.

    yay to getting things done!

    That looks so much brighter and interesting now! There is nothing like a bit of paint work to make an incredible change. We should change notes…I am in the process of renovating a house and, oh! where to start!

    you cover the rauhfaser? thats new to me … why don't you just remove it?

    and thanks again for your floor-tipp … i hope to put it into practise in our new home 🙂

    all the best

    rike > i tried to remove it, but the wallpapers underneath (many layers) made it very difficult. it took me over 90 minutes to remove 1 sqm of it (with such a bad result that i would have to putty anyway), so cover it with putty is much faster.

    Vilken fin golv-färg! Har du någon NCS-kod på den?

    J > visst är den! nej ingen kod.

    Sieht toll aus der Boden!

    Falls Du nochmal versuchen willst, die Raufasertapete von der Wand zu bekommen: Tapetenkleister anrühren (etwas mehr Wasser als normal) und die Wand damit dick einkleistern. Gut einziehen lassen, dann kann man die Raufaser ziemlich gut von der Wand abziehen. Oft in ganzen Bahnen oder auch mehrere Schichten.

    Pappelschnee > danke für das tip. hab ich probiert und die unterlage sieht so schlecht aus, dass ich alles danach spachteln muss – es geht schneller einfach die tapete direkt zu spachteln. in deutschland macht man das nicht, habe ich verstanden – in schweden ist das was "normal" ist mit raufasertapete 🙂

    Ach, in Deutschland macht man so viele Sachen nicht 😉 Ich bin gespannt auf das Ergebnis. Fröhliches Spachteln!
    Tolle Wohnung habt Ihr. Ich wäre froh, wenn ich in Dresden sowas finden würde.
