There is a lot to dislike when it comes to renovations and the process one has to go through it. It is a lot of mess, dust, debris and what not; but what is to love about them is how rewarding they can be.
No mater how messy and difficult renovations may turn, I still love them and I do not hesitate to undertake such projects because I just love that feeling when some not so pretty spaces, and may I say sometimes pretty ugly ones, turn into a loving space to cherish and enjoy in years to come.
Couple of months ago I was involved in an apartment entryway renovation, which exactly proves what I just said above.
It is a 60’s apartment with an entryway which is quite narrow and long, providing the entry into 2 bedrooms and the livingroom/kitchen on the right, and the bathroom at the front.
On the opposite side from the doors there were built in storage and wardrobe cabinets and I am sure that in the 60’s this looked nice and pretty, but almost 60 years later it was time for a big change.
I worked on a very small budget which allowed only for the new front door cabinets,paint, light fixtures, and the Lion wall art.
There was no money left for the labour so I had to undertake the cleaning and paint job myself. Yes, it was a lot of work, mess, dust and a lot of sweat but, after two weeks of intense labour, everything looked so different, pretty, neat and clean.
The mirror used in this project is the existing one and it was DIY-ed for this project. I will share this DIY in my future postings.
The console table is an DIY from another project and it used to have four pin hair legs. I DIY-ed it, again, for this project by altering the top and removing two of its legs.
The entryway runners were created from an existing sisal rug; another DIY which I will be sharing in my future postings.
This entryway now looks much brighter, clean and neat, just what it is needed for my new interior studio space. I will be running my Home Decor styling busines from this location in the vicitinity of the city center. Although, short in square fottage compareed to my previous studio space, this one has more central location with the plenty of parking space neearby, something that my previous studio space lacked.
