8 weeks ago I started my first One Room Challenge… my sunroom! Time flies, it has been a journey and so much fun! Sadly because my windows are taking forever to come in (ugh) the contractors have taken longer than expected to finish the lower portion of the sunroom, causing me to be delayed finishing the upper portion! But I have finally finished!! I have came back to update this blog post and can’t wait to share the final reveal with you! If you missed my previous weekly posts you can catch up on those here: Week one, Week two, Week three, Week four. Make sure to also checkout the One Room Challenge blog where you can read up on and see all of the other amazing rooms that have been transformed! I have been SO impressed with what everyone else has done! So inspirational!
Here is a picture of where I left off on the upper portion of the sunroom while the contractors were finishing on the lower portion! I made my own DIY faux beams out of plywood, and added this incredible new light fixture! I then added a simple and budget friendly crown molding out of 1x4s and 1x2s. Applied wood filler, sanded, and caulked! And after all of that, the reno went on pause.
A little reminder of the before and what I was working with in this space…
As soon as the contractors finished up in the lower sunroom I jumped right back into finishing this space! I started by painting the crown molding and trimming out the window! I used the color calico-cream in eggshell and absolutely love it! As for the window I have a whole separate blog post on how I did this DIY farmhouse window trim. I used 1x2s, 1x4s, and 1x6s to create this super easy and budget friendly look. I did this same trim in my kitchen except this time I added a window sill.
Next I painted the two door trims also calico cream. I would also like to at some point paint the doors that color as well. But for now I am happy with how the space turned out.
After I finished painting, I got to FINALLY bring all of the furniture I had been hoarding out of my basement and bring it into here. Links to the furniture and decor can be found here.
I am so happy with how this space has turned out. I would love to still stencil these floors a fun pattern but for now I am going to sit back and enjoy this space for what it is and appreciate all of hard work that has been put into it! Although I didn’t finish on time, this ORC was a blast, better late than never! Thanks so much for reading! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
