This little room at the back of our house has gone through several transformations. We mostly call it the mud room but it’s more of a sun room, reading nook, sitting room, overflow from the dining room when entertaining (more seating)… a quite space off the dining room with French doors leading to the back patio.
Well, the sun room got an unplanned makeover when we used some leftover paint from the man cave paint job. And it gave me a chance to turn Spring cleaning into something so rewarding – a room makeover with a zero budget by shopping the house. But first, let’s take a trip down memory lane for this little room…
When we bought our house, it had a single door and blue indoor/outdoor carpeting. Right away we added French doors, slate tile and a fresh coat of paint.
It’s one of my grown up “doll house” rooms. I’m always changing it up in there by shopping the house for furniture and accessories. The HUGE mirror was frameless and above the fireplace in our living room when we bought our house. We moved it to this room to give the illusion of more space and light, added a frame and a vinyl monogram.
There was even a brief stint as a breakfast nook.
I love an eclectic vibe of the collected decor…can you tell?
This DIY half globe light fixture cover is one of my favorite projects:
And these DIY no-sew script curtains. They didn’t go back up this time but I’ll be finding somewhere else in our home to use them. Do you have decorative accessories that you hang onto because you’re just so in love?
Holiday decorating too!
Remember these DIY painted chairs?
Okay, already! I took these beautiful Sauder chairs from our reading nook.
Let’s see the latest look, shall we? Finally, right? I am in love with the happy and bright atmosphere with the dark moody wall color! The collected decor from shopping around the house gives it an eclectic boho feel!
And all that’s new in this room is the wall paint (which was actually leftover, so again, zero dollars spent! Gotta love that!). Wall color: Carbon Copy (Behr)
This is my Springtime in Paris floral arrangement from a few years back. So pretty! The dream catcher was a fall DIY project but I love it in this room. What do you think?
Check back next week when this room has a whole new look and purpose! Just kidding!!! I think we’ll keep it for a while. Although, my orange velvet wing backs would look fab in here too. lol
One more time. Before:
Have a great week, DIY friends!
