Sun Room Makeover
Hello everyone and welcome! I have been busy working on the makeover of my home office and our Sun Room. The hard work is almost done... Well, as far as my work is concerned. I am still waiting on a couple of radiator boxes that our friend (Carpenter by trade) is building for these two rooms. The radiator cover swill also be benches and I know our little pooch is going to love it!!
But today, I am excited to share our little breakfast nook with you all!! Nothing fancy or over the top. Just a bright and comfy room for us to gather, read the news and enjoy our early morning breakast. This turned out to be a larger project than expected. My poor hubby thought he was just replacing a few old ceiling tiles and it turned out that the entire ceiling had to be replaced. Having this project turn out more work than anticipated, I decided to give the entire room a much needed makeover. So, grab your cup of coffee or tea and get ready for the tour.
Before we begin, let me show you the room before the makeover. I know! I know!! So dark and dated. Not me at all... The room lacked personality, style and light.
Now here is the after its fresh new look. What a difference! I am so happy and please with the results. It is much brighter and welcoming. And I love the combination of blue and yellow. The inspiration for the room was the fabric that I used to make the window panels. I truly love this pattern. It is modern and adds a fresh vibe to the room. I also replaced the curtain rods for one that have the clip rings. This allows me to easily change the panels whenever I am ready for a new look without too much fuss.
I must admit, this room really makes me happy now. I just can't believe it took me this long to do this makeover!!
The table and chairs are ones we already owned. A quick change in color of the accessories on the table and wall made all the difference. This pretty yellow was the perfect match for the blue that is on the window panels. Both add charm and give the room an airy feel. Most of the items pictured on the table and wall are from Home Goods.
Again, this was the old dark unit that we had in the room. A new piece was achieved by changing the color. We used two Annie Sloan chalk paint colors to get this creamy white color. Funky hardware was added to make the piece current. The pretty chair on the corner was a thrift store find which also received a makeover with a fresh coat of paint and new fabric. An oversized piece of artwork in bold shades of navy blue and orange brings drama to the room.
We decided to go with a bright color for the walls. This old dark unit received a makeover too. A fresh coat of paint and new knobs gave it new life.
Mr. Rosemary & Thyme replaced the entire ceiling. Old ceiling time was removed and replaced with new insulation and sheetrock (drywall.)
I hope that you have picked up an idea or two and hope that you are feeling inspired after the tour of our Sun Room. It is always an exciting to refresh our homes. Especially when the work is done of your own hand.
Remember, you do not need to buy everything new when you make over a room. Re-purpose, paint and hunt for pieces at flea markets or thrift stores. You will achieve a truly unique and stylish interior if you step outside of your comfort zone.
