Progress in our Sun Room

 Hello! First off, I want to apologize for being a pitiful home remodel blogger.  I kind of feel like I am either extremely motivated and working on our house, or too exhausted to get off the couch {or even think}.  I am going to try to actually have TWO posts this week.  First post; the sun room!  Here is how it started out:

I am not sure why the old residents decided to have a random dividing wall. The room is definitely not big enough to have a dividing wall.  We spent a lot of time during our first month in the house on this half of the room. 

The first project we took on was the ceiling.  The wood on the ceiling made the room feel shorter and cheap.

We threw around a bunch of ideas, but then we decided to paint it white because it was the cheapest option.  

Then a few weeks ago one of Tall Tan Man's friend and his awesome wife came in town and destroyed the wall! 


The room looked so good right?! Up next was removing the carpet.  And no.  Your eyes are seeing correctly.  The carpet was two different colors...  Unfortunately, the concrete underneath is in BAD shape.  I really wanted to stain it but the previous owners painted it green, booooo.  We still have to remove the carpet glue but the room will have to do for now.

Here is the to do list:
  • Repair the drywall where we removed the wall
  • Texture the walls
  • Paint the walls
  • Remove the wood paneling from brick
  • Remove liquid nails from the brick
  • Hang lights on the wall with the big window
  • Install curtains
  • Paint the built in shelves white
  • Do SOMETHING with the floors
  • Decorate
I do not know if making that list made me feel better or worse...

  4. What a transformation! Everyone did a great job on that project, and the progress seems to be going well. Those windows are lovely, and the lights coming in the room is just perfect. Anyway, making that check list will help you keep the progress going well, and that should definitely make you feel better. I'm loving the exposed bricks, by the way. Thanks for sharing that, LJ! Kudos to you for a job well done! :)

  5. Wow! The project was done flawlessly. I love the round chandelier as it gives a feeling that one is in galaxy. Plus, the bricks are simply marvelous. Yes, your checklist really made a big part on it. Thanks for sharing , LJ. All the best!
