Corners of our New Home~

Good Evening Blogger friends!! I finally have some photos of corner of our new home. The sun room is generally put together. I hope to tweak it some in the future, but for now it will have to do.
Also I thought I would share photos of our fire place mantel and the credenza that sets behind the sofa in the family room.

I hope this finds everyone well! Tomorrow I will share the upstairs loft area, which I call my girlie room! Once you see it you will understand why!
So hope you all enjoy. I welcome ideas. Especially for window treatments in the sun room!

This is the view of the sun room as you enter it from the family room! The window treatments are temporary until I can find some I like. My hubbie installed some cheap blinds. Those are going to be replace with cellular blinds in the future. The sun room is my favorite room in the house. I can set on the love seat and look out to some beautiful oak trees. Also we have a pet cemetery directly behind us, so we don't have to worry about anyone building behind us in the near future.

This is my love seat that matches my sofa. I thought it would look nice in the sun room. Also it carried the look from the living room into the sun room.

This is the right corner across the room from the love seat. The chair I brought from Ky with me, I had it reupholstered several years ago. It needs a new update. I also found the lamp to right of the chair at a yard sale. It was just the base, for 50cents. I bought the lamp parts and shade and my hubbie put it together for me. I also found the picture with the Victorian couple at a yard sale. I paid way too much for it, but I loved it. The old timey looking radio we won at a Union meeting for retirees. My husband retired from GMC. I don't really like the table the radio is setting on , but it will have to due for now.

This white lamp is sitting on band box to give it some height! The chest is yard sale find for 5.oo. It was in terrible shape but my hubbie done some work and it is presentable. It sets on the left side of the love seat.

This photo of the Credenza that is sitting behind our sofa in the family room! Again I will show you the whole family room soon, we are having some furniture delivered tomorrow to bring it all together.
The Credenza was in bad shape, so my husband painted it this cherry colored paint. He did a nice job, I think. The piece belonged to his mother so it is pretty old.

This is the top of the Credenza in our living room! My favorites of this vignette is the ivory roses and the rose picture!

My fireplace top part. I will show it all when I show the family room in its entirety. The picture above the mantle is one of my hubbies! I love the father and the little boy fishing. However I am going to have it framed differently. I would love to have a nice chunky cherry wood frame!!

This is my fire place mantle! Tell me if you think I should do something different with it. I love the cream hydrangea, my rose plates and all the little birdies. Does this all look tacky??


  1. I love the fire place, you said you were thinking about recovering the couch just get a slip cover, it is great, you get to see if you like it and then take it back if you don't. I love the french doors!


  2. I love your love seat. So beautiful. You and i have a very similar 'radio'..Mine is a radio, record player, cd player, tape player and can convert everything to cd's..(don't ask me how though, LOL)...Loving what you have done so far and can't wait to see every other room....

  3. Hi Susan,

    Everything looks so crisp, clean, and new.

    Oh...I can smell the new carpet and paint from here.

    I love those first days of setting up a new house. Lucky you.

    Everything looks so wonderful.



  4. Looks like you've been busy as a bee! I love the little birds on your fireplace mantel!

  5. Looks like you've been busy in a good way. I really like your mantel and the shape of your sofa. Hope your new place feels like home to you now that you're in it!

  6. Oh wow! Your new home is just gorgeous and I love the way you have fluffed up this room! It is soooo cozy,I can imagine myself relaxing with a cup of tea. Ohhhh, I can't wait to see your girly room! You have such a pretty touch!
    Squishy hugs,

  7. I can't believe you're already moved in and already decorated, Susan. You did a great job, looks very comfy!...Christine
