Small sunroom decorating ideas…and adding paint and lighting.

So…the sunroom…

It’s looking so much better today but it certainly didn’t start out that way.

When we first moved in to the cottage last July, we had plans to eventually turn this room into a bathroom and laundry room. It was a dirty, disgusting mess and we both had no desire to be in it. We ended up just piling our boxes on the floor and left it.

After some time and a good cleaning (a really good cleaning) and the removal of the blinds, we started to soften up to the space.

Once we added some furniture to the space, we knew that we would keep it as is and just do some improvements.

We are really loving the room now. The great thing about it is that it’s up in the air quite a bit, so it feels like you are in a treehouse. The view is really awesome.

I love to just sit in here in the afternoon with Finn and work on the computer, although I end up looking out the windows most of the time.

Before the sunroom makeover with yellow walls, sectional sofa and ceiling fan.

With a new plan, we came up with several projects that we want to tackle to decorate this space and turn it into a comfortable family room. New paint, lighting, flooring, a back door (a dutch door) and beams on the ceiling are all on the list.

With the powder room addition and bedroom closet happening right now though, I thought I’d do our small sunroom in stages. I wanted to get enough done so it would make an impact without taking a lot of time or money.

So, the first phase of the sunroom makeover began with paint and a new light fixture.

I liked the ceiling fan but the lights never worked right and the fan ticked when it was turned on. It drove me crazy. Turns out we really didn’t need a fan after all, so I went with a pretty iron chandelier to give the room a different feel.

Yellow walls and sectional sofa in the sunroom addition.

In between projects on the powder room, I began painting the walls. There’s 8 windows, a doorway and a vaulted ceiling in this room so it was not a small project. It ended up taking me 5 days to cut in the whole room (and it’s a small space). I love to paint but this was not a fun room to do.

Once I was done painting, the hubs climbed the ladder and took down the ceiling fan. Not an easy job. He ended up cutting a hole in the ceiling around the mounting bracket, which was spackled into the ceiling.

Ugh…not pretty.

Trying to fix the hole in the vaulted ceiling after taking the ceiling fan down.

With the fan down, we needed a solution for the hole. The beams I want to add will cover it nicely but they aren’t going to happen for a while so we came up with a quick fix.

We built a simple adapter box out of scrap wood and painted it with ceiling paint.

A bit of insulation was added in the hole in the ceiling, then we attached our box and hung the new chandelier.

With the paint and lighting done, we tackled one last electrical project…which was to check the wiring and replace all of the outlets and light switches.

Finally, it was time to put the room back together and decorate. I wanted to try a different layout so we moved the sectional to the other side of the room and laid the rug. This room is really small, and the sectional is pretty big, so we don’t have many styling options. This sofa isn’t ideal for this size of a room, but it’ll do for now.

I’m really liking this new layout. I can sit and see the whole backyard, instead of the driveway and road.

Loving the new light too, and the hubs went ahead and installed a dimmer for me. We didn’t have a working ceiling light in here before so it’s nice to come into this room at night with the lights dimmed.

You can see the adapter box we had to build to hang the light.

The striped rug is the only new addition to the room. Me and my stripes…it’s a true love affair 😉

Remember, this was phase 1. I didn’t even hang anything on the walls yet. I’m going to take my time and look for the perfect pieces. One thing that I’m going to look for is a taller plant for the empty corner. The heating vent is right there though so I’m not sure a live plant will work.

I’m also going to do a quick makeover on the back door with a coat of paint. That’ll be part of the next phase of this sunroom makeover.

I’ve also been tossing around the idea of woven shades in the windows, thinking that they’d add a bit of warmth and texture to the room. I love the unobstructed view of the trees though so I’m not sure. What do you think?

Working on both rooms has done me in. I’m going to stick with only the powder room for a while. Uh…maybe???

Building a DIY powder room vanity

We’re still knee deep in the new powder room project that we’ve been working on for the past several weeks. Last week I shared all about the construction, but today is all about our progress and a bit of pretty with a DIY powder room vanity, new faucet, lighting and a mirror.

You’d think that a tiny space would be easy to transform but you would be wrong. Nothing about this project has been easy. From the planning stages to where we are now it’s been one problem after another. Besides the obvious issue, trying to work in such a tight space, we had to deal with delivery delays and 2 broken sink deliveries. Not what you want to see when you’re ready to start building a vanity and you need a sink in order to do it.

Let’s take a look back to where we started…a big closet with our seasonal clothes and a lot of shoe boxes. A previous owner built this closet a few years ago so it’s larger than your normal 1946 bedroom closet.

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Moen.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Taking a storage closet and turning it into a much needed powder room.

It definitely won’t be a big bathroom but it will be functional, and that’s all we need. One side of the space will have a toilet and the opposite side will have a vanity.

With the walls planked and painted and the electrical done, it was time to start the vanity side of the space.

Building the walls in our closet turned powder room project.

Like I said, this is a tiny space with walls that aren’t square, so we knew early on in the planning stages that we would have to build a vanity. A simple piece with an open design and one drawer.

It doesn’t look like much but it took quite a while to put together. Every piece had to be custom cut to fit the space. The hubs also made sure to hide any screws or staples that he used so there was no patching.

Laying out the pieces to build the DIY powder room vanity.

It won’t have a lot of storage but we were able to add a small drawer.

Building a drawer for a DIY powder room vanity

With all the white going on, I decided to go with a light gray for the vanity. It adds a bit of contrast and will go with the veining in the countertop.

Installing a completed DIY powder room vanity.

We chose to go with a drop in sink so the drawer sits a little lower. The sink bowl will be behind the panel that’s above the drawer, which is typical with vanity construction.

The basket on the shelf serves several purposes. It will hold toilet paper, it adds some texture and warmth and hides the plumbing for the sink.

We were so happy to see the vanity in place. After the countertop and sink are installed, we’ll put the front on the drawer and it will be complete.

Speaking of the sink and countertop…

As luck would have it, we were able to score a nice piece of Silestone from a neighbor (for free!) to make the countertop. We were a bit nervous about cutting it but it was really not that difficult. Messy for sure, but not difficult.

Isn’t it pretty? It looks just like marble.

Once the countertop was on, we could add the sink and get it ready for plumbing.

Before the plumbing though, we added the pretty pieces…lighting, a mirror and a new faucet.

It took me three tries to get the perfect mirror. The first one was too small and the second was was good, but broken. The third time was the charm – and it’s the perfect piece.

The lighting was a little tricky. We talked about hanging a fixture over the mirror but that wall had a beam running right where the fixture needed to go. Not impossible, but a lot more work. This solution worked out well. The only issue was that I had to find sconces with a shorter profile. I’m happy to say that my first choice was the winner, and they weren’t broken. Yay!

The last, and easiest, installation was the new faucet. I love this simple and sleek new faucet from Moen. It’s the perfect touch for the new vanity.

There’s still a lot of work to do before we can call the powder room done, but one side is almost complete.

Left on the to-do list:

  • caulking the walls
  • painting the trim
  • installing the toilet
  • knob for the vanity
  • door for privacy

I can’t wait to finish this space. It will be a welcomed addition to our small cottage.

This post is sponsored by Wayfair and Nostalgic Warehouse. I did receive product but, as always, all opinions are my own.

I’m so excited to share a project that has been a year in the making, updating our old bathroom doors with new glass door knobs. Living in a 1946 stone cottage has it’s charm but also it’s problems. Well, it has a lot of problems but we’ll just focus on one today…the old doors and door knobs.

I actually love the old doors. They’re paneled solid wood with original (for the most part) glass door knobs. The doors are beautiful but most of them don’t close right, if at all.  Some of the glass door knobs are either painted over, falling off or missing pieces. These doors have seen a lot of action in their 70 years and it shows.

The door that we use the most is the first in line for some attention, the bathroom door. It closes but it doesn’t match the rest of our glass knobs.

Not the look we’re going for. So when Wayfair reached out to me about their Touches of Elegance campaign, I knew it was the perfect campaign for us. We were asked to pick out new door knobs for one room of the house from Nostalgic Warehouse’s beautiful selection.

Although the main door closed without an issue, the closet door was another matter. We haven’t been able to close it properly since we moved in and every time you would open the main bathroom door, it would hit the closet door.

The closet door knob was a real mess. There was old paint all over it and the door frame was in need of repair. I knew it was in bad shape, but I never realized how bad until I started taking pictures. Eeeek!

Of course me being me, I couldn’t just remove the old door knobs and replace with the new. Nope…not in this house. I had to do a little makeover on both doors so (A) they would close properly, and (B) so they would look their very best for our beautiful new glass door knobs.

The main door just needed a few spots caulked and a fresh coat of paint (SW Pure White) but the closet door needed a bit more attention. We had to remove it, along with the hinges that had layers and layers of paint on them, so that we could sand down the edges to allow the door to close properly. The door had been painted a ton of times over its 70 years and, with each coat, it built up and prevented the door from closing. Luckily some sanding fixed the issue (actually a lot of sanding). It’s not perfect but it’s so much better.

We also had to scrape and paint the closet door frame. OMG, talk about ugly. It was a mess.

I’ve been dreading this project since we moved in but it was time. I scraped the loose paint and filled all of the holes. The right thing to do would be to strip the frame and start over but it’s a huge job that’s at the bottom of the list. At some point we’ll do it right but, for now, it looks better and it closes. Plus it has that beautiful brass and glass door knob to distract you.

Once I scraped and painted both doors, we added the door knob to the main door. I went with Crystal Glass Privacy Door Knob with Studio Plate by Nostalgic Warehouse for the main door. They are so easy install and, in just a few minutes, we transformed the door. No more paint smear on a door knob that didn’t match the era of the house.

Full disclosure here…
Things didn’t go the way we’d hoped with this project, which happens a lot but, because I’m always honest with you about our projects, I thought it only right to share everything that happened. The good and the bad.

The closet door was a bit more involved. I ordered a passage knob and it ended up not fitting. The door is only 1 1/16″ thick so it was tricky getting something new to fit a thin door. I worked with Nostalgic Warehouse, who went above and beyond to find a solution for me, but we just couldn’t get it to work. It was nothing that they did wrong, it’s just an old door, and an odd size.

You can see the difference in the thickness of the doors in this photo.

In the end we went with the Crystal Glass Double Dummy Door Knob with Studio Plate by Nostalgic Warehouse, which doesn’t have a latch.

Besides the fact that there isn’t a latch for the door, we had to move plate and glass door knob down a few inches, otherwise the plate would have rested over the panel. Not a good look.

The knob looks beautiful but we still have the holes where the latch and the strike plate go. They aren’t centered with the placement of the new glass door knob, so we’ll eventually fill them in and repaint. We’re quickly learning that nothing is ever easy when it comes to an old house.

We still need to figure out a way to latch the door because it doesn’t close tight on it’s own. Something that will allow us to open and close it easily. I’ll keep you posted on what we end up doing.

The new door knobs though?

Oh my…

I really love the way they look! I have antique brass scattered throughout the house, including the bathroom, so these glass door knobs fit in beautifully.

Now I’m anxious to get to all of the other doors.

After I figure out a way to butter up the hubs. 😉

I’m so excited to kick off this new year by partnering with Behr on a project for their Behr Designer Stories series on the website. My project for the series was all about taking a $9 Goodwill dresser from drab to fab in one weekend with Behr paint, and I’m thrilled with the results. 

goodwill dresser before makeover

When we lived in Illinois I found this awesome vintage Ethan Allen dresser at a local Goodwill shop for just $9. Sadly, it sat in our basement for months and eventually made it’s way down to North Carolina with us, with the hopes that I would find the time to give it a makeover. When Behr approached me to do a project for their Designer Stories series, I knew that the old dresser would be the perfect candidate and that it would finally get a much needed facelift.

dresser prepped for paint

We live in a small home, with limited storage options, so the dresser is the perfect piece to makeover so that we could store our extra clothing. It was in fair condition, with a lot of surface scratches and it sat low to the ground, but it was solid (and did I mention cheap!), so all it really needed was a fabulous new paint color and 4 sturdy legs to give it a brand new look.

To get a fresh new look for this diamond-in-the-rough dresser, I chose Behr Premium Plus® Interior Satin Enamel Paint & Primer In One in “Sea Ice”. It’s my new favorite color!

I love that I was able to completely transform this beat up $9 Goodwill dresser into a beautiful piece of furniture with paint. Not only is it beautiful but it gives us the space we need to store extra clothing. A win-win! If you head over to the Behr website you can see my completed project, here

Hey there and happy Monday! Last week I told you all about The Home Depot DIH Workshop virtual party that I’m a part of and today I’m so excited to share my project with you, a DIY rustic wheelbarrow that I decorated for fall.

So, how this all went down was The Home Depot gave a group of bloggers a challenge to build the same rustic wheelbarrow and to customize it in our own unique style. This project is all about their DIH Workshops and the cute wheelbarrow is the project that you can learn to build at their next Workshop.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow

Now that you know about the Workshops, let’s get to how I built and decorated my rustic wheelbarrow (and yes…I did it all myself).

I am a huge geek when it comes to building something fun like this and I couldn’t get in the car fast enough to get to THD to get my materials. This was all I needed for my project.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow materials

DIY Rustic Wheelbarrow


  • 1 – Crates and Pallet 18″ x 12 1/ 2″ x  9 1/2″ Large Wood Crate
  • 1 – 2″ x 8″ x 8′ Prime Kiln Dried Board
  • 3 – Pressure-Treated 36″ x 2″ x 2″ Wood Square End Baluster
  • 1/2″ x 48″ Wood Round Dowel
  • 1 – Box #8 x 2 1/2″ Phillips Square Drive Flat-Head Full Thread Zinc Coated Multi-Material Screw
  • 1 – Pack #8 x 1″ Flat-Head Phillips Wood Screws
  • paint or stain to finish it the way you like (don’t forget to use polyurethane if you’re displaying your rustic wheelbarrow outside).


  • circular saw
  • jig saw
  • drill
  • 1/2″ drill bit
  • string or compass
  • measuring tape or carpenter’s square
  • pencil
  • safety goggles
  • sanding block


Once I had all of my supplies and pulled out all of our toys tools, I was ready to start building.

First I measured and marked 2, 8″ segments from one of the wood square end baluster and 1, 3 3/4″ segment from the wood dowel for the wheel axel.

Then I used my compass to draw a 7″ circle on the kiln dried board (you could also use a nail, string and pencil to make a circle).

Once all of my measurements and marks were made, I used my circular saw to cut the 2 segments from the baluster and 1 segment from the dowelRemember…safety first. Make sure you wear your safety goggles.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow marking and measuring

Then I used my drill, with a 1/2″ drill bit, to drill a hole in the center of the 7″ circle on kiln dried board. After the center hole was drilled, I used my jigsaw to cut the circle out, which will be your wheel.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow marking and measuring

Next, I measured and marked the 2 remaining balusters 1 1/4″ from one end and in the center, this will be your wheel axle. Using the 1/2″ drill bit, drill a 1/2″ hole halfway through the baluster at the mark you made on each baluster using a slight 5° angle and the drill bit pointing away from the short end of the baluster. It sounds complicated but it’s really not.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow drilling


With all of our cuts made and holes drilled, it’s time to assemble our rustic wheelbarrow.

Turn your crate upside down and align one of the balusters over the bottom of the crate. Make sure the hole that you just drilled for the wheel axel overhangs the end of the crate by 6 inches and is centered over the second slat on that side. The other end of the baluster should be angled to hit in between the two outermost slats on the other end of the crate, allowing a 12 ̋ overhang to act as a handle. Secure the baluster to the bottom of the crate using a 2 1/2″ screw on each end. I made sure to screw through the baluster and into the middle of the side of crate so that the screw had something to grip.

Who said you can’t have pink fingernails and use power tools? 😉

After the first handle is securely attached, insert the 3 3⁄4″ wheel axle into the drilled hole on the secured baluster. Slide the 7″ wheel onto the wheel axle, and insert the wheel axel into the remaining baluster. With the wheel sandwiched securely between the two balusters, secure the remaining baluster to the bottom of the crate the same way you secured the first baluster, centered over the second slat at the wheel end and between the two outermost slats at the handle end using 2 1⁄2″ screws at each end.

We’re almost done with the assembly but this little baby needs some legs to stand on. Place the two 8″ legs vertically 3⁄4″ in from the end of the crate on the outside of the balusters. Secure with one 2 1⁄2″ screw through the balusters.

Turn your wheelbarrow over and secure the legs through the slat on the inside bottom of the crate using one 1″ screw into each leg.

We’re done building. It turned out to be the cutest rustic wheelbarrow ever. Building it was a blast but we’re not quite done because it needs to get dressed up for fall.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow completed

I wanted to stick with the rustic theme so, instead of using paint, I chose to use gray stain.

A little bit of sanding and stain and I was ready for the next step.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow staining
Since we’re going rustic, I decided to add an “old” sign to the side of my wheelbarrow, kind of like the carts you see at a farmer’s market. I just used a piece of a leftover wood and, after dry brushing some white paint and hand lettering it (you know, to keep it rustic), it was ready to hang.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop - Rustic Wheelbarrow - adding personality

I was happy with my wheelbarrow but felt like it was missing a little something, so I went back to Home Depot to look for the perfect addition. A small sheet of diamond plate aluminum was exactly what it needed. A little snip, snip, a bit of sanding and and some paint to make it look weathered. Once it was dry, it was ready to be attached to each end of the wheelbarrow. Like my “Harvest” sign, the aluminum is meant to be temporary, in case I want to use it during another season, so I used a couple of velcro strips for easy removal.

How to make a DIY rustic wheelbarrow with The Home Depot Do It Herself Workshops.



*This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. 

No new house woes today. I’m ready to talk about fall and a fun project I’m working on with The Home Depot. It’s called The Home Depot’s DIH Workshop Virtual Party program and it involves a group of bloggers and a rustic wheelbarrow.

The Home Depot DIH Workshop Virtual Party

Before I fill you in on the party, I’d like to tell you about The Home Depot’s DIH (Do It Herself) Workshops. They actually offer three types of Workshops…Do-It-Yourself (DIY), Do-It-Herself (DIH) and Kids. You can find them at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. Not only will you learn how to build décor projects, you can also learn how to make easy home repairs and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions. If you’d like more information, you can visit

The virtual party itself, which is next Monday, September 12, is all about fall and building a rustic wheelbarrow. A group of bloggers, myself included, were all given the same instructions and asked to build a customized version of a rustic wheelbarrow using materials and supplies from The Home Depot.

This is the crazy talented team that I’m lucky enough to be a part of.

Cristina from Remodelando la Casa
Susan from Love of Home
Laura from Duke Manor Farm
Brenda from Cozy Little House 

Although we were all asked to do the same core project, we were encouraged to have fun with it by adding our own style and personality to it. This way you’ll get to see lots of different takes on the same wheelbarrow.

Sounds fun, right?

So, make sure you join us next Monday, September 12. Not only will you see what my project looks like, but you’ll get to check out tons of inspiration from 24 talented bloggers. Maybe you’ll pick up a few fall decorating ideas, too.

If you’d like to learn how to make your own rustic wheelbarrow, you can get more info by visiting, or you can REGISTER to build your own at a THD store near you. #DIHWorkshop
