Ready for another sunroom update? This is how my new Ektorp sofa from IKEA looked in my sunroom last time I showed it to you. Everything was still looking pretty plain and white, so I wanted to bring some color into the room and brighten things up.
I ordered a rug from Dash & Albert that I’d had my eye on for a long time. Here’s how it looked on the website:
It’s an indoor/outdoor rug that’s easy to clean and UV-treated, which is just what I needed. It’s called Lighthouse Sprout, and I bought the 6 x 9 size for $298. I thought that was a great deal.
I also ordered some fun pillow covers from So Sarah Sews on Etsy that I fell in love with. Everything finally arrived and is in place, so I thought you’d like to see it. Ta-da!
And the pillows that Sarah sewed for me are really light and fun. I actually ordered the wrong size at first (they were too big), but she graciously made new ones for me that are exactly right and refunded my money for the first order. Thanks, Sarah!
- a new ottoman (this black one belongs in the family room)
- two chairs (the wicker and rocking chair are pretty old and beat up but will do for now)
- a bigger end table to replace the small green one
- shelves or some sort of storage against the brick wall
But it’s getting there! To recap, the sunroom has evolved from this, back in December when construction on it was complete:
Do you have a “happy place” in your house? Where is it?
