When I first started this blog we took a tour of the house, and I showed you the view from our sunroom. While the view hasn’t really changed, the furniture has. Earlier this year I made over a small sofa that I have had for ages…
Once the sofa was finished we moved our TV to the sunroom and we started spending a lot of time in this room. It didn’t take long for us to realize that this sofa was just too small and somewhat uncomfortable.
So, Kevin is a fireman. When he is at work, either he is working or he is sleeping in a recliner. I am not sure if it is firemen or just men, but I think they are obsessed with recliners. Since I met Kevin he has told me how he needs a recliner. I personally think recliners are ugly, but it’s what he really wanted. So we were off to the store to purchase a larger sofa and a recliner.
Here is a look at what we ended up with:
It may not look a lot larger than the other sofa, but it is. I just realized this photo also makes the sofa look lumpy…that might have something to do with the fact that Stewie likes to sit on the top of the pillows and look out the windows. I guess we can’t have anything nice around here!
Well, there she is. Kevin’s throne. Would you have given in and let your husband/boyfriend get a big giant recliner even it it visibly isn’t your thing? I tried to find the least offensive fabric. I think the faux leather is a lot better than some of the other options (we went with fake leather so we wouldn’t see a ton of Stewie’s claw marks on real leather). I have to admit, I do sit in it every now and then, and it is pretty darn comfortable!
The room still needs a ton of work, but it has great features!
All the tables we have in here are mismatched and old. I have yet to find anything that I love…that isn’t a small fortune. We also have a mix of all kinds of old/cheap lamps.
I love the ceiling, but I would definitely like a new ceiling fan…
and a new TV/media stand would be fabulous as well!
So here is the list of things to do in this room:
- Better solution for TV stand and speakers
- New lighting
- Updated ceiling fan
- Add art or gallery wall
- Cuter throw pillows for sofa (current ones came with it)
- Make room for tons of baby stuff and possibly add storage of some sort!
So much to do, so little time!
