Boys playroom redo-- more pics

January 23rd, 2014 at 04:50 pm

Okay, so here is an update on the playroom project. Carpet is out and wood floor is clean. I've repainted, put down the rug, and am starting to put furniture back in and put the new stuff together.

Some pics are below. But first, an accounting of our expenses:
Ikea:
$239 Lyckesele sofa bed
$89 extra washable cover
$75 shelves
$25 lamp
$42 table (saved $9 with discount card)

Rug, 9 x 12
$200 for bound carpet remnant

Paint
$37.80 - 2 gallons Valspar with primer @ $35 each with tax - $10 rebate, - $22.20 on an old Lowe's gift card

Savings
Freecycled carpet and carpet padding, saved $18 in garbage disposal fees.

Total project cost:
$707. 80

Darn. Over budget! I could have scrimped and not bought the extra washable cover for the sofabed. I'm glad I didn't though. I also could have pieced together cheaper flooring, but I don't regret that either.

But, to make up for the overage in the projects budget, I'm taking "rug for the boys' room" off this year's list. I was able to repurpose two of the small area rugs from the playroom for their bedroom, and I think they will work for at least the next year. That should just about make up for it.

So, no regrets overall, even though it was more money than I anticipated.

Now, the fun part. The pics! Just so you know, I debated long and hard about what color to do the accent wall and I made a bold choice-black. So far, I don't regret it though!
