The beginning of mine and Caleb's home adventures started in March when we moved into our first home and I introduced our new floors to our readers in this post. I'm happy to say that we've done much more to our home since then and I've also come to terms with the fact that despite all the work we've done, many of the grand ideas and dreams I had for my home will be a loooonnngg time coming... We have a basement full of boxes still waiting to be unpacked, floors that aren't quite finished, and bathrooms that are a little bit leaky and stuck in tacky 70s colours.... BUT! I've accepted the fact that Caleb and I can't do a new home project every week and that to maintain our sanity, we need to actually just enjoy our home as it is. So we've been enjoying away and easing off the renos.
We knew when we bought our home that the sunroom was going to be our favourite space to be in, so this past month I've done my best to homey it up and we've created a space that's sooo welcoming and fun to be in. So here's the before and after of my own, personal sanctuary...
Isn't is so much more cozy and fun?! We had debated whether or not to buy actual patio furniture or to somehow work in furniture we already owned... and I'm so glad that we didn't dish out a lot more money to buy stuff that wouldn't have felt as homey! What we did end up purchasing was the mustard striped pouf and the hanging lights (both from Target), and everything else was furniture that we already owned :)
Can you see why it's my favourite? This room is where I live and breathe now... I edit photos here, take naps, read, eat supper here, play games with Caleb, and enjoy hosting our friends...And I'm sitting in here right now, working on this post to share this special place with you :)
I hope you enjoyed this peek into my life!
