Working place refurbishment - Dining Area
refurbishing project for Praktiker Hungary

This project was about to renew a dining area which had a bit of lack of colour and atmosphere.

I have decided to change the big white wall a feature wall, with some coloured stripes, stencil painting and shelving unit.
The chosen colours of the stripes match with a wallpaper in the living room,
The shelf is more like a picture frame (created from timber pieces), with some changeable installation in it and the flower pattern stencil makes the horizontal line a bit  more playful.

We played a bit with textiles as well, as we created chair cover from big pieces of table cloth, and the window in the angled surface got its curtain as well in the same colour.

We started and finished the construction on the very same day...and we had so much fun during the construction.

About the main project:
From 2011 June I have been involved to the social media campaign of Praktiker Hungary - DIY store.
I was the "face" of the campaign.
My duty was to write their blog about DIY tutorials, tips and ideas for low budget refurbishing,
and most importantly to be the interior designer of the monthly refurbishing project.
I not even designed the rooms, but participated during the construction and commented on it, as we made tutorial videos about each of them.

How we chose the participant?
Every month we announced a competition on social media sites, where participants had to send us their room which needed refurbishment (in different subjects like dining area, kid's room, study area..etc).
I had to choose 4 from the applications, and to make sketches for them about how to renew the interior.
At the end of every month one of the sketches won the realization of its plan by voting.

During the realization process, which usually took 1 or 2 days only, I was one of our 3 members team who worked. About every project we made video for Praktiker Hungary also.
