Home Improvement: Florida Room
Well I’m sure I still have paint somewhere on my body, but yesterday afternoon I finished painting the Florida Room.
To recap this is what the room looked like when we first moved in:
We lived with it that way more or less for pretty much a year and half. It just became a dumping ground for things that didn’t have a home.
Then on Sunday I went a bit nutty and by late Sunday evening it looked like this:
In the top right corner you can even see where Sunday night at around 10pm or so I knock over a gallon of white primer. We were painting the floor anyway so Jon just started spreading it around.
Monday morning we woke up early and continued the madness. Here is what the room looked like this morning:
Ah I’m in love. The floor just needs an additional coat and the then a coat of poly to seal it in.
This morning was spent searching my local thrift shops for a daybed. I didn’t find any, but I did find two other pieces that will now be residing in the Florida room aka den,office, breakfast nook.
This bench is going to be getting a complete re-do. I’m painting the frame and then finding some fabulous fabric to reupholster it it will also need a lucite tray for on top and voila a new coffee table.
It was only $38. Not too bad.
The thrift store I went to has another location in a town about 20 minutes away so I took the drive and came home with this:
It is a slipper chair and ottoman that of course needs new fabric, but it was only $18!!!!!!!!
Still need a daybed and some sort of desk, but I’m happy to see it coming along.
I was totally inspired by Rory’s pool house that I guest blogged about today. So I’m in search for some fabric in the pink, green and yellow family.
Once I find the perfect fabrics I only need to worry about learning how to sew. Hmm let's hope it's not too bad and I can talk my MIL into helping me out!
I will keep you all posted on my progress!
