Tweaking the Sun Room!
HAPPY MONDAY! Can you believe it is Monday already! This was a three and half day weekend for me. In the south we celebrate Confederates memorial day. All the state offices are closed. This weekend went by in a flash! I spent all day Saturday cleaning and rearranging my sun room. I kept changing out the decor and had problems deciding what I liked and did not like. I started out just to do a deep cleaning, but my need for change over powered me. I am happy with the re -do. I did not spend a dime, I just gathered up items I already had. I hope you enjoy the photos of my sun room. This is a view of love seat and gives you more of an idea of the placement of the radio. The love seat matches the sofa in our living room. We will be getting a new sofa soon, but I am going to keep the love seat. This book case sits under my violin canvas print. I had the hydrangeas in a wooden vase. I changed them to this cream colored pitcher. I like the look much better. I took some of the clutter off and just left it with these items. I like it much better. I wanted to lighten up the feel of the sun room. I had some heavy valances hanging over the windows. The lace valances make the room have a more airy feeling. I found them at yard sale and I thought they were in good enough condition to use them here during the summer months. I moved the old style radio to the corner beside the couch. It use to sit on the wall facing the windows. I changed out the vignette. Before I changed the vignette , there was a birdhouse and some birds inside the wicker basket. I added the lamp from off the bookcase and a rooster candle holder I had in stash. I then added the cream color beads to dress it up a little. I do love my bling. For years now, I have had a cut work lace table cloth on this little round table. I could never find anything I liked any better for that table. While I was cleaning I was going through some of my linens and found this red tablecloth. I use to have it on m-y kitchen table. It came from K-Mart country living line. I thought I would see how it would look on the table and in the room. I decided I really liked it and added a lace table topper. I kept the tabletop display simple, just a lamp and a candle.
