But before we start decorating the sunroom, here is a picture of yesterday's progress:
The framing is done, insulation was placed in the walls, and posts were set for the new garden fence.
Maybe maybe maybe the windows and doors will be delivered today – my fingers are tightly crossed.
Anyway, now that the walls of the sunroom are in place, my decorating plans are coming together. I will be using the room as a sleeping porch, satellite office, and casual dining room. So basically I'll be able to do everything I do in the rest of the house in this one small area. Which begs the question, why do I need the rest of the house? I don't have an answer to that, so let's move on.
I'm hell-bent on having a hanging bed in the sunroom. It doesn't have to swing, but having it hang off the ground will make the room easier to clean, and there's something instrinsically relaxing about a bed that floats in the air. The bed on the left retails for the obscene price of $1,500 and I don't want to think about how much shipping would cost. The bed on the right is home-made, I think. My plan is to ask my contractor if he, or someone he can recommend, can build something similar.
I seem to be spending all my free time lately shopping but not buying anything. I need to start making decisions, but I don't want to make the wrong ones. That's where you come in. If you're a Pinterest person, I've got a sunroom board started over there - here's the link - so you can get a better feel for my style, which, if forced to describe, I might call "cowgirl bunkhouse chic." If you're so inclined, send me links, send me pictures, send me new ideas – I'm listening!
