A Light, New Windows And Drywall In The Sunroom

I still haven't found chairs for the foyer but I'm tracking a couple.  In the meantime we finally got a light for the sunroom.  My husband just put it up yesterday.  Finally, I won't have to feel my way around in the dark.  And now we can even work in the room at night.  Oh joy!  It's hard to tell in this picture, but I'm painting the ceiling that faint blue color.  It's BM Palladian Blue 25%.

We also changed out the old louver windows with something that comes much closer to the originals.  They aren't perfect, but much improved from what was there.  My husband finished putting up the drywall.  Now it just needs tape and mud and then we can paint.  Though I still haven't finished prepping the old windows.  It's such a nightmare.  We had asked a painter for a quote to do the prep work.  Let's just say that person never got back with us.  Hmm.  I wonder why?  Nightmare.  

Not much else has been done, but in the next month we are having a bookcase made for the opposite wall.  

It will be the entire length of this wall, going over the doors (which we found in the attic!) and from floor to ceiling.  The bonus is that we're getting a library ladder.  I'm so excited! This is definitely going to be my favorite room in the house. Light + windows + books = heaven.  


  1. Tiffany this room might my favorite one in your house too. Those windows, the ceiling height, the future bookcase design? Swoony. So fun to follow along on your renovations.

  2. this will be one fabulous sun room when you are finished; I can "see" it!

  3. Please, Please, Pretty Please may I come for a visit?

  4. The windows are gorgeous and love your new lantern. There's nothing quite like having a perfect room to use a blue ceiling and yours will be amazing with all of the light!

  5. Love the lantern. You both have done such hard work on this room and it looks great. It is paying off my friend!

  6. I think that sunroom is just perfection...would love a space like that!
