|H and I spent all day yesterday working in the sun room. It was hot and muggy outside, so we chose an indoor project. H decided to paint the brick in the sun room and I chose to work on the furnishings.|
|The first thing we did was move everything to the other side of the room. H used the same paint as he did on the outside brick, but since he didn't use the sprayer, it took most of the day to brush the paint on that brick!!|
|The picture on the left is "before"...the right is "after" I like both looks, but I love the new fresh look for now! I traded the pink rug for the burgandy one that was in the entry way. (the burgandy rug is a $25 yard sale find that I don't think I have showed you before) Bonus....the entry way has a fresh look with it's new pink rug!|
I decided not to put back up the flag over the sofa. So, I replaced it with the clock that was over the desk (to the left of the sofa in the "before" picture) . See that HUGE rose stem on the left side of the sofa? I bought that a long, long, time ago. I saw some big flowers like that at HL the other day, so I drug my big rose stem out of storage! (FYI...my "storage" is the studio...that's why I can't participate in the great party that is going on right now..... my "creative space" is a mess! (Please visit my friend Debbie to get all the details about the party and see her gorgeous creative space ..... http://debbie-dabble.blogspot.com/2013/07/my-creative-space-2013.html )
I washed all the sofa slipcovers and put them away. I didn't want to put another slip cover on so I just embellished the sofa a little..tehee! I added a sheet valance to the bottom of the sofa....put a lace tablecloth across the back....and tucked some sheer curtain fabric over the cushions. With a little tucking and pinning the new covers will stay in place pretty good...
The newly painted wall makes the room so much lighter....I love it!
|Here is a close up.|
|I put a tea set on the ottoman....This set belonged to my mother, it has the tea pot, 4 cups and 4 saucers...creamer and sugar bowl. I would have shown the creamer and sugar bowl, but I could not find them anywhere. They'll show up sometime!|
|And another little tea set on the side table by the love seat....I bought this set at a yard sale several years ago for a few dollars . The teapot's lid was missing so I turned it into a vase!|
