The Sunroom Reveal 2010

Im calling this the Sunroom Reveal 2010 because I am going with the theme of the parties or "events" that I threw when I was in college. I LOVE having parties, not wild drinking parties, but pick a theme, cook tasty fun food, play music in the 'background', and dress nice type parties. Those were the days. I had a Spring Bash 2005, a Happy Graduation 2006, Surprise Graduation 2004..you name it, I'll add a date and make it a party!
So...the guilty subject is our sunroom. Drab, to put it nicely. Dark wood paneled walls, carpet (of course!), and valances longer than a country mile.
As we peeled off the carpet we discovered wood 'linoleum' type flooring, which had a beachy look to it, so being on a budget, we decided to keep it for a while. (Im planning on painting the floor white in the near future). The walls took several layers of paint, I mean several, and so did our LOVELY tile ceiling. Let me apologize to you about our ceiling, we are going to cover it with bead board eventually, but sometimes you just have to work with what you've got for a while.

Also, I need some opinions on this, should we replace the blinds with bamboo shades? This will cost an arm and possibly a leg, but I am seriously considering it. What do ya'll think?



BEFORE.....yikes.

AFTER...
These are two of my recent paintings...if you are interested, please contact me for pricing.


Dip loves the chair.








I used wire for the curtain rod, thats why it's a little droopy (sp?), never will I ever buy wire for rods AGAIN! I came very close to crying.
