I have to admit that at first I wasn't sure about it. I think it just felt so different and traditional, but now I adore it. I definitely have some plans for the foyer but I'm saving them for the upcoming One Room Challenge....maybe....if I can get motivated.
We also found some doors in the attic that use to close the sunroom off which were just painted and hung.
Now on to the bad and ugly. No, it's not the mess you see in the room above. That's just reno and real life people! Anyway, remember when we started on the sunroom? Well it's turned out to be a total cluster you know what. I feel like I've spent a ridiculous amount of time scraping off flaking paint, meanwhile my husband has removed the lower plaster and baseboard to add wiring.
And then he noticed this.
This is the wood that was removed. It's so chewed through that it's light as a feather. And now we can see right to the outside in the corners. Great.
So, needless to say, my husband's got his work cut out for him. Just one more thing to add to the list. I have to say that in my head, this room is going to be amazing when it's done. I have plans to do a ceiling to floor bookcase with a library ladder and eventually french doors out onto the porch. It'll be great, but this one step forward two steps back crap is getting old. Plus it's going to be one expensive room to finish. Why oh why can't anything just be easy (and cheap) in this house?!?!
