Living Hall & Terrace Entrance Makeover Project

Giving an old house a makeover with minimal budget is very daunting task. So, keeping it to a minimal.... only surface makeover without changing the layouts (originally we wanted to extend the hall)... but instead, this is what we did;

DONE:
- changed the paint (from red, yellow, blues to muted browns and soft orchids white)
- put box plaster ceilings, wall lights.
- took out the aluminium sliding door, replace it with a smaller black folding door
- added a dead window next to the folding door.
- put decking facing out the folding door
- replace curtains with bamboo blinds for the new window

WORK IN PROGRESS:
- put wooden decking facing out the folding door, the custom made decking are sooo expensive... so we're buying it in small sections from Houz Depot (1X3).. and planning to cover up the pink tiles with powder flecks resembling pebblelike wash.
- to buy large mirror in Nilai 3, collect our outdoor chairs, put up the shelf for deco





Our own furniture HASN'T been put in yet, we're just using the existing rattan furniture which is still good condition. We kept it minimalistic. Simple.
The hall 1 is for receiving formal guest (pic above).... whilst Hall 2, NOT shown here is the lepak2 type of guest... with lots of bean bags, throw cushions, TV, carpets.....

Still a lot of work to do......
