Good Morning, Moxies! It has been a long time coming for a new post, but my own house was in need of a little TLC, okay a lot of TLC. I have several half started projects that I haven’t had time to get finished or projects that just seem to lack priority in comparison to other things on my to do list.
I decided to tackle my sunroom first. It was probably the most noticeable unfinished project. I started sewing new cushion covers for my sunroom back in February and it was left with half old green cushions and new grey cushions ever since. I wish I would have snapped a picture of it, because it was interesting looking for awhile.
My inspiration for the sunroom started with this chest that I transformed here. I removed the wicker tables and decided to add some character to what I call a very wickertastic sunroom. Yes, wickertastic. Everything in the sunroom was wicker, there wan’t much character and the green cushions have bothered me pretty much ever since I bought them. I had to dig for these pictures, but I found one of my son at Easter time in front of all the wicker and a picture showing the ugly pattern on the cushions so you can truly get what I mean. Staging this picture together for the chest transformation below, made me realize that I wanted to bring in more pink, orange and turquoise into the room with pillows and other accessories. I loved the way the turquoise of the book and the pink and orange in the decorative balls looked with the mint green. For my fabric choices, I looked at fabrics by Joel Dewberry on fabric.com. I really love his floral prints. And in a sunroom, I felt it would be nice to bring in some bright florals. To bring some character into the sunroom, I repurposed an old typewriting table that my mom had in her attic and used it as a side table. I thought the color turquoise would be perfect for it. As the color turquoise is perfect on just about everything, right! If you attended the Lucky Star Market you may recognize the super adorable coaster. I just had to have one for myself. Another piece I repurposed was this old side table from my grandma. I love the geometric detail on the side. It looks lovely all creamy and distressed. And it makes a perfect TV stand! My good friend Megan over at 421 Design got me addicted to this copper spray paint. Seriously addicting, I mean it! I could not stop finding things to paint copper. I found my can at hobby lobby. And don’t forget to bring your 40% coupon with you! Don’t mind the sparse yellow flowers. My boys won’t leave them alone. They keep picking the flowers off and giggling. I may or not replace them until they figure out to leave them alone! I love the feeling of finishing up a project. My sunroom is ready just in time for beautiful sunny weather. I can sip my coffee in the morning and kick my feet up and enjoy! And here is one of my little princess dog Siena, who refused to leave the sunroom for my photo shoot. HA! I don’t blame her, the sun does feel good. Have a good week and enjoy the sunshine!
