Small Room Makover – Week 6 The Reveal

5

The reveal day came much faster than I have anticipated, and while browsing the rooms and spaces of the 20 featured designers participating in ORC I was about to FAINT (seriously), seeing that every revealed space there was so breathtakingly beautiful.

Well, this is not something that I can say for myself and the room I worked on. Of course, I never expected that I can produce something that will wow anyone as I had to make this happen within an incredible low budget. However, I can say that I wow-ed myself knowing that I was able to put all this together with such a low budget and make this room liveable and functional again, as well as to cosy it up so it can be enjoyed by the owners for few more years to come.

For all of you who are here for the first time, this was the condition of the room the day I decided to get my hands on.

Because of the budgetary restraints, getting new furniture was out of the reach. Reupholstering was also costly, so we decided to slipcover the sofa/ loveseat duo, and I ended up doing this job because we could not find a willing or a skilful person in town who could make slipcovers.

We needed a desk which will serve as a working desk and/or make up desk, so I designed this hairpin desk which is made out of construction wire found at a construction site dump. The construction wire was cut (by a local blacksmith) into four pieces 156 cm long and bended into a hairpin shape which were attached to a base plate. After the legs were done, I painted them in black and attached them to a piece of 120cm long x 40 cm long x 2 cm thick MDF.

Also there was a need for drapes, so the owner had a pair of unused store bought white sheer panels. White sheer panels were not exactly what I would envisioned for this room, but I just had to peruse them, so in order to add some body to the drapes I lined them and added a decorative black and white band at the upper part of the drape.

No sofa is complete without some pillows, so I made several pillows using this interesting reptile print fabric and this beautiful green velvet.

This simple, yet elegant, gallery wall is created by using few used frames in which were inserted brushstroke art which I DIY-ed for this room.

To add some interest to the room I created this focal point wall by painting this geometric design mural. Also the wall art placed in this wall is a DIY project which was created by using an old useless painting.

So when it comes to sources I wish I had a list of sponsors that provided what I needed to complete this room, but what I can happily say is that I DIY-ed almost everything used in this room and I am very happy the way it turned out.

One thing I am not happy about though is, the PHOTOS. I had only one afternoon available to take photos and, as you can tell, it was not my day. It was a very rainy and dark afternoon and it just did not work. But, hey…life goes on… and there will be another One Room Challange event in spring.

Thank you for visiting and please check the reveals of other guest participants of One Room Challange.

Perditiesimi i Dhomes se Vogel – ORC Java e 6 – Perfundimi

Dita kur behet zbulimi i punes se bere gjate ketyre 6 javeve erdhi shume me shpejte se qe e kam pritur, dhe duke i shiquar dizajnet e zbuluara te 20 disajnerve pjesmares ne ORC gati u alivanosa (pernjimend) kur pash se secili dizajn i zbuluar sot nga ata ishte aq i bukur sa te linte pa fryme.

E po mire, kjo nuk eshte dicka qe munde t’a them per vetveten dhe per dhomen ne te cilen punova. Kuptohet se as qe kam pritur qe te krijoj dicka qe do t’a bente dike qe te thoshte wow, duke pasur parasysh buxhetin jashtezakonisht te vogel. Megjithate, munde te them se arijta ti them vetes wow, per faktin se arijta ta perfundoj dhomen me ate buxhet dhe t’a beje ate te jetueshme dhe funkcionale si dhe ta beje ate qe te shfrytezohet kendshem edhe per disa vitene vijim.

Per te gjithe ata te cilit po vizitoni per here te pare, ja se ne cfare gjendje (me larte) ishte dhoma ne diten ne te cilen vendosa qe ta pranoj sfiden.

Per shkak te kufizimeve buxhetore, blerja e mobiljeve te reja ishte jasht cdo mundesie. Mbeshjellja profesionale e tyre ishe e kushtueshme, andaj vendosem qe t’ju qepim mbeshtjellset, dhe une perfundova te merem me qepjen e tyre pasi qe nuk gjetem ndonje person me aftesi te duhura profesionale qe te merej me qepjen e tyre.

Na nevojitej nje tavoline qe do te sherbente si tavoline pune/grimi, andaj e disejnova kete me kembe ne form kapse flokesh te cilat jan te punuara me material ndertimor (shufra hekuri) te cilat i gjetem ne hekurishte. Shufrat e hekurit u prene ne gjatesi prej 156 cm dhe pastaje u kthyen per tu bere ne form te kapses se flokeve dhe u ngjiten ne pllaken baze. Pasi kembet ishin gati, e bera ngjyrosjen e tyre me ngjyre te zeze, dhe i ngjita ato ne nje pllake MDF 120 co e gjatex 40 cmi e gjere, me trashesi 1.6 cm.

Dhoma kishte nevoje per perde, ashtu qe pronarja i kishte nje pale perde te gatshme te ngjyres se bardhe. Perdet e bardha nuk ishte ajo cfare une e parashikoja per dhomen, por duhej t’i perdorja ato, dhe ne menyre qe te shtoja pake konstukt ne to ju qepa astarin e bardhe dhe e dekorava pjesen e tyre te siperme me shirit bardh e zi.

Asnje kolltuk nuke eshte i kompletuar poqese nuk dekorohet me jastek, andaj i qepa disa te tille duke e perdorur kete material interesant me print te lekures se zvaranikeve si dhe tjeret i punova me material plishi ngjyre te gjelbert.

Ky mur i thjeshte por shume elegant i stilit galeri u krijua duke i perdorur dis korniza te perdorura ne te cilat i vendosa disa punime te punuara nga une ne stilin “levizje brushe”

Qe t’e beja me interesant dhomen vendosa qe muri ballor te jet si pike fokale e dhomes ashtu qe e krijova nje mural me dizajn gjeometrik ne ate mure. Gjithashtu, edhe piktura e vendosur ne murin me mural eshte nje DIY projekt.

Pra kur bie fjala tek gjesendet per mobilimin dhe dekorin e dhomes une do te deshiroja t’a kisha pase nje liste te gjate te sponzorve te cilet kontribuan per regullimin e kesaje dhome, por fatkeqesisht nuk kisha sponsor. Por cka munde te them me kenaqesi eshte se gati cdo gje ne kete dhome esthe e punuar vet, dhe duke u nise nga ky fakt atehere edhe jame shume e kenaqur se si doli kjo dhome.

Megjithate, nje gje me te cilen nuk jame aspak e kenaqur jane FOTOT. E kisha vetem nje pasdite ne dispozicion per fotografim, dhe siq mund te shihni ajo nuk ishte nje pasdite qe ishte ne anen time. Ishte shume vranet dhe erret ate pasdite dhe dite aspak e pershtatshme per fotografim. Por hej….jeta vazhdon…dhe do te kete event te tille prap ne pranvere dhe shpresoj se atehere do te jem me me shume fat.

Ju faleminderit qe vizituat kete faqe, dhe gjeni kohe t’i vizitoni edhe hapsirat tjera te perditesuara nga mysafiret tjere participues te Sfida e Nje Dhome.

  1. Listen up lady! Your designs always give me a wow factor. I love you gave the room a whole new flair – it’s sleek and modern with a touch of pizzazz.. I can’t believe you did the slip covers yourself- that alone is a big WOOOHOOO! they look awesome. I’m glad you participated in the ORC – it’s always a fun motivation to have the support system around you. Keeping to a budget is hard so don’t sweat the small stuff.. because you made a big impact.. (I did my room for $100.00 so trust me that was a teeny-tiny budget)

    • Oh Jamala you are so sweet and kind, and your comments are always big encouragement to me. I am so glad that you liked what I did in this room! Making slipcovers was a lot of work, but I am glad how they turned out and, as you say, the room got a whole new flair thanks to those white and crisp slipcovers. THanks again and have a great day!

  2. Thank you so much, Tee! I really apreciate your comment and thanks for taking time to check my room makeover reveal post. The emerald pillows turned great, I love them too!
