One of my new potted succulents hangs out on a glass and metal side table which I found at Goodwill a few months back. This table (and its smaller mate) were originally chrome, but I hit them with some of the same metallic gold spray paint that I used on the curtain rods to make them fit in better with the room.
You can also see the first of the six pillows I made for the room. I hand-painted the envelope pillow in front, and the striped pillow is made from an old cotton t-shirt.
The next stop on the tour of the room is the re-covered couch and X-leg coffee table. The rattan of the furniture is in great shape, but the cushions were pretty rough. My mom spent hours and hours at my sewing machine making new covers for all the cushions using fabric I ordered online. Didn’t she do an amazing job! It took me a while to come up with the coral, blue, green, and navy color scheme, but I think it plays out pretty well in the room.
My West Elm inspired pendant lamp found a permanent home in the corner of the sunroom, as did one of my blingie gold animals. All the decorative accessories in this room makeover were taken from other rooms in The Mad House or were bought at a thrift store.
While you are looking at that picture, take a minute to check out the carpet. I had really wanted to rip up the carpet in here and paint or stain the concrete underneath. The carpet is kind of dated and not the colors I would have chosen. However, since it’s still in great shape and scraping the adhesive off of the floor would have been a big job, we left it. And look how nice it looks now that everything is in the room! It was a good lesson for me that not everything needs to be redone for it to look new!
What do you think? Is this your favorite Mad House room makeover or do you have a different favorite?
