The Rumpus Room

I am not exactly sure why houses have a rumpus. In some homes, it is used as a game room, exercise room or a video room. For us, the rumpus is the place where old furnitures go. At some stage, there were so much pre-loved desks and tables in this room, we nicknamed it the ‘Crumpus’. On the lead-up to this painting project, I managed to sell most of these ‘abandoned’ furnitures via eBay. Now, it’s practically empty.

Functionally, we use this room for our desktop computers and the ever growing computer peripherals we’re accumulating. Since it is adjacent to the family room, it also serve as the video library. It’s not a nice room to be in during summer because of its big windows that gets a direct hit from the sun in the morning. In the winter however, the heat from the desktops is enough to keep the room warm.

Years of using this corner as a workstation has left footprints on the wall. Notice the dark marks?

After painting several walls, my skill had improved. The paint is very even, patches are not noticeable, absolutely spotless. Perhaps my best wall so far.

  1. Hooray! Ang galing nyo talaga! Way to go TagTeam Jess & Pasky! I’m immensely enjoying the progress of your labor of love like it was my house hahahahaha

  2. I am really proud of you Pasky. It takes a lot of painting skill & patience in doing that BIG job of yours.

    Keep up the good work. Have a great week.

    • Patience is already running out – good thing it’s almost over. After this week, we will do the hallway then take a break before we do the rest of the house. At this stage we’ve completed 2/3 of the house but the remaining third are series of small rooms that can be worked on independently.
