Sunroom Gets A Paint Lift

If you remember when we first moved into our new place at the end of September, I mentioned that this sunroom would definitely be getting painted.

Well, it was started last week.  I finally decided on SW Interactive Cream and hubby did it {and the ceiling} over the course of two days.  Here it is during.

I am so glad to see that green gone.  I do like green, but not this particular shade.  Here is the room totally painted.

While I was visiting in New York, he moved all the furniture back in, but since we are going to be getting some kind of new flooring soon, I decided to hold off on putting most of my accessories back for now.

I didn’t get to show you our new sectional before because I was waiting for this painting to get done.  We started out with two chairs in here, and even though it’s just the two of us, we really needed a little more seating.  Sometimes the daughter and SIL come over and we all watch a movie.

We all four can actually fit on here, although we did keep a chair in here that we just swing around for movie night.  This way everyone has room to spread out and get comfy.

I’m still stumped on the window treatments I want to do.  I’ve been back and forth, for the past several months, between stationery panels, valances, and back to stationery panels.  I feel valances creeping back in though.  I think with all these windows you can understand the indecisiveness.

While the bookcases look a bit wanting right now, I am so glad we got rid of that green! I like this color so much better.

Oh Kathy, I love that color too, it is so pretty. I am not a real green fan, just a few small doses is good for me. The new color looks fabulous and the sofa is perfect. Hugs, Marty

I love the new color Kathy!!

Great color choice! I like green to, but it has to be the right color. In the house we are renting every room is painted the same color green. It is a sage color and very drab....

I am looking forward to having my own home again, so I can choose the color, and we have only been renting two months-lol.

Kathy, I love this color! I put in in a house we built and it was the most amazing color, truly interactive! It's so pretty in your light filled sunroom! Great choice!

Great new color. Those windows are beautiful so I would hate to cover them completely.

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

This color is so much better! I understand you indecisiveness over the window treatments. That's a LOT of windows to cover! :) What a wonderful space to hang out and relax in.

Hi Kathy,

Your sunroom looks beautiful. I love the new color. Great looking sofa too! Stationery panels would be beautiful. I love your pretty windows. It took me a long time to decide on window treatments for my sunroom.

What a fabulous transformation, Kathy! I can see that you took “functionality” into consideration while transforming this room. It can be a great place for gatherings, or a “me-time” moment. You can also make this your personal office.
