Sunroom Reveal: Things aren't perfect but we trust you can relate

You know, here lately… I've been getting a lot of "I'm so ready to see your house!" or "When can I come over to see this new house of yours?" And I think to myself, my house is NOT ready for people to come over. Nothing is finished being decorated, I have furniture to paint and I just plain don't like it right now. But ya know, it's "our" house and it'll always be a "work in progress." Nothing is ever going to be done! And if anyone couldn't have said it better, I borrowed this from the Nester smith. Love her.

So, without further blah, blah and more blah… I will stop talking and let you look through lots of photos… Keep the tomatoes and negativity to yourself ;-) Unless you have cookies.

Let's recap. Here's a few before photos. Below is the blank slate with the couch in the back.

Another from when we first moved in… 

And here's some progress. But no much. A whole lot of beige.

And finally today, I began the real work…

 Today, the sunroom took a turn and started to feel lived in. Started to feel more like ours, more cozy and most importantly, some place we can just go to enjoy each other and our every day's. Of course, there are still a list of "to-do's" for this room including crown molding, finding something cool for above the TV or something for either side of the tv. I want to paint the antique side table that sits beside the couch & our new leather chair as well. And possibly the rocker. I really love the color of the little chicken wire cabinet I brought in at the last minute. That won't stay there forever... I'm just filling the space for now but I do love, love, love the color of it! So, friends… there's our sunroom as it sits right now. Wanna come over and have a cup of sweet tea with me? And talk about life? Good, me too.

  2. Can you tell us what the paint color for this room is? Love this color combination

  3. I admire the way you transformed your house so beautifully, Ally! The sunroom transformation is really lovely, but on a whole new level. You perfectly achieved such a cozy lounge room, and that's really something. You've only settled on your new home for quite some time, but you've already made it into your own personal sanctuary. Great job on that! Kudos and all the best to you! :)

  4. The sunroom looks great! The windows give a very vibrant feel to the entire room. Anyway, how are things doing now? Have you done any makeovers with the room recently? Thanks for sharing this with us, Ally. All the best!
