Last week I mentioned our porch and was hoping to paint all my mismatched Craiglist rattan finds. Well, thankfully my dad came over and did it when I was at work. Big score for me!
This room is tricky. It was an add on to our very old house and is our main entry and exit. It also has a weird semi hidden staircase to our basement laundry. So it needs to serve some purposes storage wise and gets a lot of traffic. The prior owners, just had a chaise lounge in here, nothing else. It mad me sad, because it is so nice during the summer and fall months. Basically, I want it to feel fresh and include lots of happy hours!
You can see that the rattan is in various shades and is not a complete set:
A close up:
It is hard to see in the photo, but my walls are a bright white and the furniture now has a slight chocolate tint to it.
There is still a lot of things on the to do list:
Replace Clyde's pillow with an ottoman or poufs.
I am debating about getting two ceiling fans. There is no AC out here and the air flow gets pretty humid.
Also debating about some kind of roman shades. There are 7 windows next to each other and I took off the metal blinds to make it more open.
Remove those hearts that are nailed into the bar cart.
Gets lots of liquor for the bar cart.
