How To Save A Room
X6GT posted a topic in Reno t-Blog ChatAfter the success of my bathroom reno, I decided I should start another thread about Phase 2 of my reno to share ideas and experiences with other Renotalk kakis. This time, Phase 2 involves the overhaul of a 15yr old bedroom. The bedroom, that has not been lived in (except occasional visits on some weekends) for the last 6yrs, seemed to have been stuck in a time warp just like the bathroom previously was. It was a mishmash of nonsensical concepts that the room's original occupant neither liked nor wanted: - Parquet flooring - Purple/ psychadelic walls (omg) - Heavy solid wood European Da Vinci furniture - Peeling paint from roof leakage or something - Heavy solid wood wardrobe The decision to overhaul was conceived many years ago, but there had been simply no time nor resources before. Now that the opportunity has presented itself, the room is going to be turned into a chill out room for hanging out with friends over a movie or for working in. It will be designed with an underlying industrial concept, mixed with a bit of highbrow pop art concept (whatever that means LOL) The interior designer (me) is still in the process of making the furniture and buying whatever things that we are not making ourselves... so please bear with the slowness of the process. If you have any ideas or advice, please feel free to post them here! Kam sia..
White Spots On Painted Walls
twixxx posted a topic in Home Maintenance & RepairsHi guys i need help about my walls. 5 years ago i painted my room with two tones, red and orange. Red using Nippon Vinly Silk and orange using Dulux Pentalite. The walls were painted without using any primer. I painted it over a flat finish white wall. Before i started painting the walls i wipe down the walls with 1 part bleach and 5 parts water. Then two weeks later after painting white spots and patches started to appear on colours. i gave a wipe with bleach and water and it disappeared but return eventually. It really pissed me off. Every 6 months for the pass five year i have to wipe them off. The spots the decreases every time i gave it a wipe though. Now after 5 years i'm planning to paint my walls again to a dark grey tone but this time i don't want to deal with this white spot reappearing. Could anyone tell me if this is mould, mildew, fungus or alkaline. What can i do to prevent this spots reappearing again. this time I'm gonna sand my walls down and apply primer. Need a recommendation of what primer and solution base wall cleaner to use to prevent this spots from reappearing. I could really appreciated the help from you guys before i start painting. Here is a clear photo on how bad these white spots can be. The left side recently wipe off and the right didn't bothered to wipe for years because the wardrobe was in my way.
