Makeover by Monday | Colorful Sunroom with Cubby Storage

Before & After, DIY PROJECT, Makeover by Monday

This episode of Makeover by Monday was such a treat for me! We made over Tommy and Cait’s (owners of Enlightened Brewing Company) sunroom. Cait loves all things vintage, colorful and quirky, which is right in my wheelhouse! I am still trying to figure out how to pick up this room and put it in my own house! I just love it so much!

This sunroom has such beautiful light! The owners use it a lot but never got around to decorating it. The room became a drop zone for furniture, toys, shoes and jackets. Tommy and Cait wanted a space they could relax in, but not too precious so the kid could play. Also on their list was a dedicated area for boots and coat storage.

Beautiful sunroom with eclectic thrifted furniture, blue board and batten details and seating for the whole family.

Scalloped Rug
Floor Cushions
Hanging baskets
Wallpaper from Chasing Paper – Lace

This wall was the perfect spot for some storage!

Our amazing carpenter, Michael, took my cubby idea and made it a reality in a couple days! He custom built this to fit the space, and I am SO happy with how it turned out!

Birds on the Ceiling

I saw little birds all over their home, so had the idea to have a local artist, Christina Persika, to paint watercolor birds and then have Chasing Paper turn them into decals on the ceiling. It was a sweet little moment that added to the whimsy of the room.

Raffia Lamp

This is one of my favorite DIY projects, because it’s simple but has a big impact! You just wrap any color raffia around a basic lamp. All the step-by-step details are in the episode!

I loved finding out that Cait’s Grandma’s owned a wallpaper shop called Paper Dolls. It only seemed fitting that we add some wallpaper from my line with Chasing Paper. I used Lace from the collection, and am so pleased with how the delicate floral pattern plays with the rest of the sunroom.

Cait loves a good thrifted find, which is one of my specialties. The floral chairs were a score from a vintage sale, and I got the coffee table (which transforms into a dinning table #mindblown) at Restore. Both got a little black paint, and became stars of the room.

I think that’s about it! Let me know if you have other questions in the comments!
