Sunroom update time! For those of you following along at home, our back porch sunroom has been a massive work in progress for oh, the last six months or so (in case you’ve missed it, check out the before video here, and an in-progress video here!). We’re thrilled to be in the home stretch and can happily report that by this time next month, you’ll see the big, final, fully-decorated-and-loaded reveal. Can you hardly wait?
Me neither! Until then, here’s what we’ve been keeping busy with:
1. After we hired out the drywall phase, it was time to think long and hard about flooring options. Originally, we had planned to paint the existing concrete a bright white, but after we brought in some helpers to re-finish the floor in preparation for laying the solution, we fell in love with the natural look and feel of the concrete. We’ll be sealing it and cozying it up with a gorgeous area rug (remember our inspiration board?), but I love how elemental and perfectly outdoor-inspired the concrete feels. Three cheers for happy accidents!
2. Ken has been hard at work trimming out each and every one of those beautiful windows. They’ll soon be painted white (along with the walls), but for now, they’re hung, prepped, sanded and ready to go! He’s a bit of a master woodworker, isn’t he?
3. Our biggest addition to the room has been the custom bench seating we’ve designed and are in the process of building. Because we want to optimize this space for family get-togethers and parties, a window bench made the most sense in seating the maximum amount of people. Even better? We’ve designed the piece as a storage solution, so it’s the perfect place to stash spare blankets, family games and books/magazines. Don’t worry; we’ll share a tutorial with you next week so you can build your own custom bench solution at home. Sounds good, right?
So with the heavy-lifting and construction work complete, it’s time to get to work decorating! Check back next month for a full video tour of the finished makeover – painted, decorated and ready to enjoy! See you then, friends!
