Sun Room Makeover Times Two

This past summer we finally got around to painting our sun room. It went from being a problem area, with dated stenciling, and a leaky ceiling, to an oasis of calm in our house.


The soothing green that we choose transformed to whole space.We purchased new cushions for the sofa and chairs, to replace those that the dog has chewed. The bold blue stripes play well against the crisp walls. The room looks all dressed up for when company comes.



For everyday use though, we pack away the good cushions, and put the old ones back on. Because...we still have a dog that chews them. And we have kids that decide that the sun room is great place to wage full out Nerf wars. So they build forts....



Oh well, at least it's a nice, quiet retreat...sometimes!

    1. Every time we put a fresh coat of paint on a room, we wonder why we didn't do it sooner!

  4. I love your humor. I love that your house can be a quiet retreat and can also be filled with kids being kids having fun. Love the new look the sun room has.

    1. Life with kids is not always picture perfect. I try to manage the chaos, and enjoy it too.
