I suppose summer is almost officially over with Labor Day just a few days away. So in an effort to extend summer for as long as possible, I am sharing the next phase of updates that have been made to my sunroom. I already shared how I created two separate picture walls here. And you've seen the special space I created for my doggie here. The next make-over phase involved creating a little reading nook so I could enjoy the view of the backyard.
The changes might look small, but they have certainly made things more functional. I changed out the rugs in front of the doors, to the Hessum Door mats from IKEA. I also changed the orientation of my larger rugs from horizontal to vertical. I think they fill the long narrow space of the room better.
I added a few accessories (all things I already had) to this old dresser, like some family pictures, a globe, and a lamp. This dresser used to be in the master. When a new piece was purchased for the bedroom, I relocated this into the sunroom. It provides a good amount of storage.
Speaking of storage, this old milk crate is perfect for holding books. I have had it for awhile now, and was just waiting for a perfect purpose.
The reading nook! All of this, I already owned. It was just a matter of bringing it all together.
This camper picture was the only thing I purchased for the makeover. It was on clearance at HomeGoods, and I couldn't pass it up. The US map was a flea market purchase, given to me by my momma. I DIY'd the little chalk board. You can see how here. The light above was made from a banjo! Make sure you come back on Monday, because I am going to share the tutorial for how I made it.
