I feel like there’s a collective sigh all over blogland as we realize that the day we have been waiting for is here. It’s time for our One Room Challenge Reveals and I’m so excited to share my finished tropical tiki sunroom today! It has been a lot of work to get the room to this point, but it was worth it! I’m in love with my room and can’t wait to spend all summer in it!
Six weeks ago, I joined the One Room Challenge. The One Room Challenge is hosted by Linda at Calling It Home and the media partner is House Beautiful. Be sure to check out the featured designers! There are so many amazing rooms! I’m linking up with the over 200 guest participants. This challenge is so good at getting me to finish a room on time! My house might actually get finished with enough One Room Challenges!
Catch Up Here:
This is the room that we started with. It was okay, but needed some repairs to the walls where the pup had destroyed them. We dreamed of a room to live in during the summer, that would function as a 2nd kitchen when we were too lazy to come inside for lunch and to hang out in. The results are even better than I dreamed. I am so thrilled with this room. There are so many special elements like the mermaid aqua floors and the sparkly countertops.
This room just proves to me that when I don’t hold anything back, the results are so good. No, aqua floor probably aren’t great for resale, but I don’t have any plans for moving any time soon. Don’t let fear stop you from your dream home.
The after feels finished and more importantly the room is FUN!
Look at those floors! It was so hard to cover them with a rug, but it’s necessary to help prevent slipping since the pool is right outside.
I made my daybed dreams come true by building the easiest daybed ever. The tutorial will be posted next week.
We already had most of the furniture. It just looks so much better in the space now with the addition of newly covered pillows.
My husband helped me build this bar. I’ve always admired and wanted a vintage bar, but after only finding one that was covered in fur???, we made our own.
I painted the inside of the bar a contrasting lime green color since it is seen from the door. The inside of the bar contains so much storage space! We can keep our outdoor dishes in the room, plus pool toys and supplies! For more storage, I brought our white shelf back in the room.
The kitchenette area is a dream come true for me. Before there was a damaged, cheap bathroom sink sitting here with the world’s longest hose attached to it. We tore it out and installed cabinetry instead and topped them with the most gorgeous countertops ever.
The mini fridge is the cutest fridge in the world! It was such a great price and I’m so glad we went with this choice instead of a plain fridge.
The bar sink has the tiniest drainer I’ve ever seen and it’s so cute. I’m really happy with the sink. It came with a faucet that was pretty decent, so one less thing to buy! The art was found at a thrift store about a year ago.
It has been so much fun shopping for this space.
I added LED string lights on both ends of the room for romantic atmosphere at night. 😉
A shelf provides plenty of space for glasses. It’s not a complete rainbow yet, but I’m working on it.
A lady vase holds pretty flowers.
I’m ready for a drink! By the way, check out that gorgeous art from CopperCornersArt! Her work is so amazing.
The texture in her work is so beautiful! By, the way, the shibori walls were also inspired by Mary Catherine.
The other piece of art that I’m thrilled with is this vintage oil painting. I found it in the dark, scary part of a barn sale that I like to shop at.
The Cuba travel poster I’ve had so long that it’s probably vintage by now. 😉
Okay, I think it’s nap time now. I’m so in love with kantha quilts and this one makes me so happy! So does the fringe pillow. It adds such a fun texture. I really wanted to add softness to the room and I think the bed really helps with that.
So what do you think? Happiest sunroom ever?
Anyone want to come over for a drink and a nap? Wait, is that weird? 😉
