The Sunroom Seating Area
Happy August, everyone! I'm continuing on with the tour of our sunroom.
Last time I showed you my newly slipcovered chair and the bookcase beside it, here...
And before that I showed you what I call my 'cubby thing' here...
Now I'm showing you the wall beside the cubby.
This area underwent probably the biggest change in this room. I removed the 2 screens that were here against the windows and hung some lightweight lacy curtains instead. They provide privacy from our close neighbors, yet still let in a ton of light.
I brought home this little barn wood table from the shop, when to my surprise it didn't sell right away!
I thought it was so cute, and that it would be perfect between the 2 iron chairs that I already had here.
I topped it with my vintage rocking horse with a nest on its' back...
...and also with a green seltzer bottle, a tower of flower frogs, and a tall topiary.
I have my coffee out here each morning, and usually have a little companion (Bob) who follows me out!
Underneath the table I placed an old green box from the flea market...
...and added a couple of small ticking pillows.
Then I hung a small picture of a fern...
...and that completes this little seating area! (The cross pillows were made by my friend Carol-love them!)
I wanted to keep this space fresh and light, and I feel like I did that by mixing in some soft greens and a touch of blue.
Next to the chairs is a locker unit that I got years ago at an antique mall.
It's wonderful storage for all (ok, some) of my decor mags!
I topped it with a wooden birdhouse and a clock and plant covered by a wire cloche that I got while visiting Phoenix...
And that's it for this wall of the sunroom!
I hope that you enjoyed all of my changes...
...and I'll show you the rest of the sunroom next time!
Have a wonderful day!
