You may have seen my posts in January about sunrooms; My Current Obsession and My Sunroom Design. I don’t remember if I officially announced it here, but Hubby and I got the house with the sunroom I was obsessing over! We decided it would be the first room that we focus our energy, time and money on. Now that the room is nearly complete (I still need to accessorize), I wanted to share some photos with you!
Here is how the sunroom looked when we first saw the house.
Changes we have made so far:
• Painted the walls Sherwin Williams 6763 Retiring Blue
• Painted the ceiling Sherwin Williams 7008 Alabaster
• Ripped out the old indoor/outdoor carpet and replaced it with Emser’s Napa Avorio 12×24 porcelain tile
• Pulled down the old “shades”
Here is how our sunroom looks currently. I still need to accessorize but couldn’t wait any longer to show you and finding the right accessories can be a long, drawn-out process.
These super-cute chairs were my had-to-have splurge (sort of) from Pottery Barn. The tables were neglected and cheap at a local antique store. A couple coats of gold spray paint and they’re pretty again! I had wanted a wheat sheaf table BADLY ever since seeing this picture a couple years ago, so finding these made my year! I actually found them last summer and they sat in a corner of our duplex waiting for just the right spot. I love how the look in our sunroom!
I found this vintage bench on eBay and had it reupholstered (the chair cushions were created custom to match). It was originally done in pink and blue plaid faux silk – BARF! The absurd truth about this bench is that I bought it so my Chihuahua Chanel would have a comfortable place to sunbathe. ;o)
This yellow flatweave is from Surya. I originally planned to pull the old carpet, paint the concrete a bright color and put down a neutral flatweave, but we decided to go ahead and have the floor tiled for a more finished look. I know the rug may look undersized but there’s a reason – muddy dog feet! I wanted to make sure our Siberian Husky Calix wouldn’t be walking (ok, running) across the rug in and out of the house so I chose to go with a 5×8 instead of an 8×10.
Hubby and I decided that our turtle Sheldon needs to have a quiet space with views of the backyard so I bought this console to hold his tank. Yes I know, we’re crazy pet people! But when your pets are your kids, why not spoil them a little. The console was unfinished (who knew you could buy unfinished furniture on Wayfair?!) so I painted it Sherwin Williams 6674 Jonquil to add another pop of yellow. The other thing that made my year was finding this fiddle leaf fig tree! SO obsessed!
This is the ginger jar that I mentioned I bought on Etsy to create a Feng Shui wealth vase. I think it’s a cute addition and attracting wealth can’t hurt either! This pillow fabric is where the entire sunroom design started. The pattern is called Fog Island (in Billiard Green – terribly inconsistent name for this color) by Robert Allen. I am so in love with this fabric!
Changes we still need to make:
• Switch out the door hardware with the new chrome Baldwin set we purchased
• Replace the ceiling fan for something more attractive
• Paint the trim to match the ceiling
I plan to post final pictures once all the accessorizing is done so be sure to check back!
