One of my favorite features of David’s parents’ house is their little side sunroom. They’ve worked hard to make it a bright, inspiring space in the last several months, and I wanted to show it to you!
I always enjoy getting inspiration from other people and want to know how they find furniture and other decorative items, especially on a budget.
The two metal chairs have been in Linda’s family for years, and she found the wood glider at an antique store in town.
The chairs were green and looking a little worn, and the glider was pink. All the furniture got freshened up with a couple of coats of cream paint, which makes it look clean and cohesive.
Don’t you adore the white footrest too!?
The indoor/outdoor throw pillows from Wal-Mart provide a pop of color, and the plant stand was a thrift shop find in Dewey Beach, Delaware years ago.
I’m very partial to the plant (Alocasia) with its big glossy leaves.
The rug is from Lowe’s, and Linda found that charming mirror at Tuesday Morning, which to me is the perfect focal point of the room. I feel like if you can find one item with lots of character, everything kind of comes together around it.
Linda’s stroke of genius was that she had a vision for a great mirror but didn’t actually find it until the end!
The vintage pie safe cupboard tucked back in the corner was a roadside find, and blue watering can is from a local nursery
Steve brought in the knotty log scrap from the backyard, and naturally it needed a stuffed chipmunk (this is Noah’s favorite part of the sunroom).
Don’t you just want to go sit there with a cup of tea?
Great job, Steve and Linda!
