    Really the main thing is to just get all the storage bins and your old stuff out of the room. Then, whether you repaint or not, it'll still be a usable bedroom.

    I have the exact same IKEA bed and it’s amazing! I have mine flipped though so the tall poles are at the foot of the bed and I use them as a clothes rack for a capsule wardrobe.

    This is better than just hoarding storage items, sure. But it doesn't look good. Looks like a budget college freshman dorm dollar store room. 🤭

    The whole vibe of the new room was very relaxing except for that extremely bright mustard wall. I don't think it fit well.

    It's important to note that all oil based paints will yellow over time.

    • Lee Lu
      Lee Lu 7 months ago +2

      So what storage solutions did you incorporate for all of the items that were there when you started?

    • Lee Lu
      Lee Lu 7 months ago

      Also, inexperienced DIY folks may not know that it's important to dust off surfaces after sanding and before applying a stain/primer/paint/poly top coat. You didn't mention this in the video.

    Water and liquid fabric softener also works to get the wallpaper off!

      McK USA, it's none of your business. We don't always have to comment something interesting and it's my choice to comment this.

    • McK USA

      Lazy, boring people. Get off your butt and try it, then comment something interesting and useful instead.

    If you have to research how to take off wallpaper don’t work for a diy department... that’s like a tasty worker researching how to cook an egg...

      My mom turned my room into an office but we have a daybed in there so it still doubles as a guest room and my room. But 80% of the space is primarily office.

    • lydia wash
      lydia wash 6 months ago +6

      I mean something like a home office or craft room,something for the hardworking family toexpress a dream they may have pushed to the side
      While yes, a guest room is useful, its ultimately for someone else.
      I should have articulated my real point the first time around but it seemed niche.

    • SB W

      Is a guest room not usable space?
