We’ve known for a while now that we would need to eventually replace the two sets of patio doors in our sunroom.  We aren’t sure exactly how old they were – they were added sometime after the room was enclosed (it used to be a screened in porch) in the 50’s, but we think they…

Update:  The pictures below of the bookshelves and accent table we ordered for our sunroom are from the original product pages on the JCPenney and Target websites, but the products are no longer available online.  Sorry for the inconvenience! About a year ago, we painted and got new furniture for our sun room, which we’re now…

Over the last couple of weeks, the furniture we ordered for our sun room back in January has trickled in and everything has finally been delivered. We’re really happy with everything, with the exception that the couch should have had three cushions instead of two. We’re working with the store on it and it sounds…

I called yesterday to get an update on our furniture order for the sun room. The tables and television stand were delivered a couple weeks ago and the rest of the furniture was supposed to be here by the middle of March. I talked to our decorator yesterday and it sounds like our sofa is…

New Outlet Covers!

This morning I spent about an hour replacing about 30 outlet and light switch covers in our master bedroom, master bathroom, and sun room. It sounds like a silly thing to think about replacing, but it made such a difference – in the bedroom especially. The master bedroom and bathroom (and also the kitchen, hallway,…

Some of the new family room furniture for our sun room arrived this week. The end tables, TV stand, lamps, pictures, and a couple of accent pillows were delivered on Wednesday. All of the seating and the area rug for the room are still coming and should hopefully be in sometime in the next couple…

Painting Progress

Our painter has made a ton of progress in the last couple of days. The final coat has been put on the family room and it’s completely done now with the exception of a couple of places that still need touching up. The color we chose called Nuthatch. It’s a Sherwin Williams paint and the…

The painter started in our sun room and master bedroom today. I was shocked by the amount of progress he made while we were at work. He got a coat of tinted primer on in the sun room. It’s such a huge improvement over the green! It’s only about a 75% tint, so the color…

Painting Starts Tomorrow!

Our painter stopped by yesterday and he’s ready to start painting our master bedroom suite and sun room tomorrow! He’s going to paint the trim in our master bedroom and bathroom the same shade of white as the rest of the house (it’s a more yellow-y shade now) and the walls are going to be…

Fabric samples for the furniture we ordered for our sun room came in the mail today. It’s funny how differently we remembered our selections. Both of us thought we’d picked way too light of a shade for the new couch, but when the samples came, we were happy to see it is a nice shade…

We just placed the order with the furniture store for our family room furniture! I’m so excited to see what it’s going to look like in our sun room, but they said to expect that it will take 6 to 8 weeks before it’ll be delivered. It sounds like pieces will be trickling in as…

This afternoon, we started on what we were sure was going to be a multiple day effort to remove the green, floral wallpaper from our sun room walls. Given our previous experiences with removing wallpaper, we were crossing our fingers, hoping that the paper would at least be strippable and the walls properly prepped. Surprisingly,…
