Finally! My Sunroom Reveal!

Well I am FINALLY getting around to posting! Sorry for my laziness! Of course by now you should
have figured out that I am cheap AND lazy so it's not my problem if you are shocked! It has been a
whole month since I painted my sunroom. So let's get right to it! Here is the before:
And now the after:
Now THAT is a BIG change! Right?! I used the amazing Benjamin Moore Aura paint and
got that orange covered in one heavy coat and one touch-up coat. The color is Dune Grass 492.
Here is another view from the kitchen... before:
And after: (Remember, I hinted that my Haymarket sign was a hint of things to come!)
I love that the new color brings a coastal feel into the sunroom and into my home. I am definitely not a person
who plans out a room (when I am doing my own house). I start with something that inspires me and then
I just go from there. So I decided to bring in some accessories to go with the feel of the paint.
I got this starfish garland from Michaels.

Remember my clearance lamp from Pottery Barn? My lanterns are from Decor Steals. 
I absolutely A. DORE. this rope covered glass buoy I found at HomeGoods.

And I picked up this turquoise starfish topped mercury glass bottle at Pottery Barn. Couldn't resist!
These driftwood looking carvings are from HomeGoods as well. I put them on the wall above the look-thru from
the kitchen sink. It's funny how that spot looked fine when the walls were orange but empty after I painted.
 Here is my mantle that I picked up at The Empty Nest in Warrenton. If you have not visited Janet's shop
you need to! She is fabulously informative and happy to spend as much time with you as she can. I buy
my chalk paint from her and feel like I walk away with a new tip every time! (or a mantle!)
In fact, I stole this lighted scrap fabric garland idea from her when I was there! 
She used bits of pretty colorful fabrics but all I had handy was burlap and linen. But I love it. So cute!
 So that is the big reveal. I actually have more plans for this room but will be coming back to do those in a few months. The painting of this room has brought on a major whole house change! I will be taking the house from warm tones over to cool ones. So there will be a LOT more changes coming soon!

 Enjoy the sun this weekend if you are getting some - Burly is!
 And thanks again for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think!
Partying at these fun blogs!

You've done a wonderful job on your sun room. I love the color your chose and the star fish. The mantel is a great find too. I'd love for you to share at Transformed Tuesday. Hope you have time to stop by.

Wow! Your sunroom is so amazing! I might not be a fan of dark-colored rooms, but you made it so well that I really loved it so much! I'm pretty sure other rooms in your house are perfectly decorated. Did you post them too? Well, let me check and I'll definitely bookmark your page for future design references. Hehe! Hope you won't mind. Thanks!
