I'm interested to see the transition from antique to modern. Love these things, I'll be checking back every now and then. Good luck!
Thanks a lot

As I promised, I'll keep you guys posted with my work. However, it has been a rainy day here today so its pretty cold and humid so I can't do much of a work here
At least, I finally get what I need to get started

I've got 2 planks, one which you've probably seen before in my previous post and the other one which is not so nice


two pairs of l-shape ( can someone add the term for it ) I'll probably need more


Acrylic ( I'll need to order more )


what I'm gonna do today is just paint some shellac on the wood I smooth out

and we're done, due to the cold and wet weather, I can only do a layer for now( kinda blurry, no enough light source due to the rainy day )


That's it for today, stay tuned

Thanks
Well, there seems to be some change of plans.....I was thinking, what if I build something like this and place it onto the wall? http://www.instructables.com/id/Buil...or-book-shelf/ Pls give me some opinions on this

Whew! Sounds like a pretty ambitious project! You'll have to replace/refinish a lot of the furniture, too, I guess...

Technically, this is an updated version of my plan on the room overhaul. See the section with the door on the side? Yeah, I might replace the huge ROG logo with the shelf? or should I keep it?

As far as I can see, the tetris shelves ain't a good idea to use it here.
Here are some constants that I might be keeping
1. color of the room ( white )
2. Position of old furniture( not my part )
3. color of old furniture
4. no changes to the light switch


and variables( changes ) ?
1. I'm gonna get rid of the teddy bear wall paper on the closet

2. extend the width of my long table

3. continue with the double shelves idea
4. make a L-shape rack for the unfinished table ( single floor only, no drawers)

I'm not sure if you can see it clearly though, the pencils and the piece of paper might indicate the rack

5. color up the wall with some abstract paintings
6. huge Republic Of Gamers word actually on the wall which I'm gonna be placing the racks

7. paint the window's sides to make it look a bit more modern than plain white

8. get a friggin curtain, ah the light hurts mah eyes
9. apply some paint to the plugs/ switches

10. get rid of any ants in the vicinity and to anything unnecessary


blah blah blah......for now, I couldn't think of anything to do yet..." sigh "

well, wish me luck in searching for more planks around my home..... and stay tuned

I can't help but giggle when you say "planks". I keep thinking of the other kind of planking people can do.

Anyways, I have the plank all done, actually I still have one piece left and I'm a bit confused with how am I gonna arrange them on the wall so here are some pics I took on the variations of position I could thought of and I would like to know which one is better or maybe you got some other cool ideas too thanks
