there was a day when something disturbed my ideal of beauty when i came into the living room. the feeling of disturbance grow as days flew past. and then i suddenly recognized that i really hated my black CD shelf and both of my brown book shelves. they simply didn't fit into the concept of the rest of the room. they didn't fit to the pink and white coloured walls. they made the whole room look shabby, not chic. they somewhat made it all look a bit dirty. chaotic, but not in a creative, but very unsophisticated way. and i simply HATED this view so much so that i had the huge urge to change that sight immediately.
i bought wood varnish in white at the local supermarket and prepositioned paint brushes of several sizes and also a paint roller of those kinds we also used to paint the walls with. i used the latter for the CD shelf and the most extensive parts of both book shelves.
but the finishing touch was the hardest part of the work.
the book shelf was lying on the floor and with small paint brushes i painted the small, still brown parts, most of the time bent forward with all my body.
it was loads of work.
when i finished the first book shelf i didn't think that it would be that hard to wake up the next morning. i was ill-treated with a very very bad notalga. but i didn't want to stop it because the look of the book shelves earlier disturbed me so much i really didn't want to see it anymore XD ... so i forgot about the pain and carried on ... and yes. the change was ernormous. and you cannot believe me how relieved i was that i started this project - and when i finished it, finally !!!
and afterwards i REALLY felt at home, because now there were no disturbing factors existing anymore. this exorbitantly great work was worth it.
because nearly everything in my flat is finished not (except the tree in my bedroom) i will start a room tour with you very soon. in single posts i will show you each room and explain everything you can see there.
