living room update

We’re done painting the living room and we’ve moved on to the sunroom (just beyond the doorway in the pic below.)

Sean started by removing the old base to replace it with the taller base we put in the living room.

Here’s the view from the sunroom back into the living room.

For some reason, the previous owners of this house had drywalled over one of the windows in this room. I’m guessing they used it as a tv room?

This room used to hold all of our bookcases and desk, but it wasn’t really functional. The plan now is to turn it into a playroom/office.

So much brighter and lighter! The new taller base looks better too.

Unfortunately my floors aren’t looking too hot right now.

I know it’s only temporary, but the dust is making me a little crabby. I feel like I’m constantly cleaning but the house is still a disaster! Another thing that’s bugging me is the windows. The more gorgeous trim we install, the worse our ugly old vinyl windows look, so I’m hoping we can at least get a few new windows installed this fall. The long term plan is to replace all the windows in the house, starting with the first floor. In the meanwhile, I’m on the hunt for a few file cabinets for this room and some kind of toy storage unit (maybe this one from Ikea?) Hope y’all had a nice weekend!

  1. Fabulous! HWK — I love Ikea’s Expedite line. And — you cannot BEAT the heavy-duty double-casters that go with it. Put that baby on wheels, you won’t regret it! [and so many different sorts of baskets / boxes fit into the cubbies… it can be “toys” on the bottom and “files” on the top… or…] Thanks for sharing!
