Sources from our Sun Room

Hi there!  Here are some of the sources from Tuesday's post.  As you will see, we should totally be friends if you are a walk around the outside aisle of target {where all the sales are}, and refuse to pay full price for anything. :)

Our World Market {Metal Orb Chandelier} might be my new favorite decor item in our house.  Isn't it lovely?  World Market currently has it priced at $119 which is 20% off the normal the normal price.  We lucked out because we got the chandelier when all the lighting was 25% off. 

I totally died {I can be a little dramatic} when I saw our metal chairs on Craig's List.  I talked the seller down to $25, which I was pretty proud of.  :)

The {Chevron Rug} was another lucky purchase from Target.  It is an indoor/outdoor rug which I thought would be perfect for under the kitchen table.  At the end of the summer I crossed my fingers {and checked the outdoor section a million times a week} until it went on sale.  I waited until it was marked down twice...from $250 to $58!!! 

We have had this {Indonesian Daybed} from World Market for about a year and still love it.  I love how unique and comfy it is.  :)  

Tall Tan Man built us this {coffee table} last year, because the one I had before was a bit girly. 

Let me know if you have an questions or suggestion on what to do to our UGLY floor!

Progress in our Sun Room

 Hello! First off, I want to apologize for being a pitiful home remodel blogger.  I kind of feel like I am either extremely motivated and working on our house, or too exhausted to get off the couch {or even think}.  I am going to try to actually have TWO posts this week.  First post; the sun room!  Here is how it started out:

I am not sure why the old residents decided to have a random dividing wall. The room is definitely not big enough to have a dividing wall.  We spent a lot of time during our first month in the house on this half of the room. 

The first project we took on was the ceiling.  The wood on the ceiling made the room feel shorter and cheap.

We threw around a bunch of ideas, but then we decided to paint it white because it was the cheapest option.  

Then a few weeks ago one of Tall Tan Man's friend and his awesome wife came in town and destroyed the wall! 


The room looked so good right?! Up next was removing the carpet.  And no.  Your eyes are seeing correctly.  The carpet was two different colors...  Unfortunately, the concrete underneath is in BAD shape.  I really wanted to stain it but the previous owners painted it green, booooo.  We still have to remove the carpet glue but the room will have to do for now.

Here is the to do list:
  • Repair the drywall where we removed the wall
  • Texture the walls
  • Paint the walls
  • Remove the wood paneling from brick
  • Remove liquid nails from the brick
  • Hang lights on the wall with the big window
  • Install curtains
  • Paint the built in shelves white
  • Do SOMETHING with the floors
  • Decorate
I do not know if making that list made me feel better or worse...
