Ok folks, here’s another project that has been stuck in my head for quite awhile and put on the back burner until I found some time to tackle it. I’ve found the time (and energy) to tackle it. Right off of our bedroom is a sunroom. It is a nice sized space and has windows on two whole walls. There is a door that leads to our bedroom. Many eons ago, we used it as an office but for the last 8 years or so, it has been nothing but a dumping ground for “stuff”. When we didn’t know what to do with something the comment was made “Just put it in the sunroom for now”. I despise that “for now” nonsense. Since the children are filtering out of the home, I thought that this space should be reclaimed. I’ve decided I want to make a dressing room out of it. Ok…now, with much guilt, I’ll show you the “before” pictures, taken several days ago:
And this is where I’m at after working on it yesterday and this morning:
I have several dilemmas. The first is the color scheme. What color to paint the walls. I had previously picked out fabric with this project in mind and have definitely decided to go with green. I’m thinking the darker green in the flower.
Now, if I go green, what color should I paint the furniture? There’s brown in the material, but I’m thinking black. The furniture is vintage, so I don’t want to go crazy like a yellow or anything. However, all of my accessories (jewelry holder, baskets, etc) are black, if I go with black furniture…too much?
Then there’s what to do with my obviously over-the-top-bordering-obsession collection of purses. I initially thought to leave them where they are and use them and my scarves (which I also love) as kind of a “curtain” on that wall. I would add another mid-level rod on the window to add scarves to the bottom as well. Problems: The sun may fade them and they may clash with the green. (I know, that’s a sad statement. Just being honest!)
I’m keeping the rug because it will be warm in the winter. It’s a very light grey. So now I’m at a road block. I’m not sure where to go from here, but have ants in my pants to move on it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 🙂
