Our new house has a great space - a three season sun porch. We have loved being able to eat "outdoors" without the pesky mosquitos or flies annoying us...but we knew this room needed some love.
Here are some "before" photos from our showing. There was some dated indoor/outdoor carpet, original brown siding/wood and a very dated, rusty ceiling fan light fixture.
This room was pretty dark and dreary, so I needed to transform it into a more cheerful and welcoming space. I painted the wood walls and red brick on both sides of the sliding door with a white exterior paint. We replaced the carpet with a large gray tile and lastly replaced the ceiling fan with a rustic light fixture. This room has become SO much brighter and more inviting!
The photo below on the left is a close up of what the brick looked like. The photo on the right is with a coat of primer. It took one coat of primer + two coats of paint...and it's still not complete coverage, but it works for me.
Above middle: Rustic, shuttered mirrors and planters from our old house are placed on each side of the sliding door.
Above right: Our "This is our happy place" sign from our patio at our old house was a perfect addition to this room.
