Before and After: The Four Seasons Porch

Sorry, I’m delinquent and didn’t take photos of our upholstered couch before a storm rolled in. We’ve been living without rainfall for about two months so I was completely unprepared. Look for a post on our couch next week. However, I do have some great before and afters of our four seasons porch.

Porch BeforeWhen we moved in, this room was so-so for us. The paneling with holes. The stained carpet. The rubber baseboard. I thought it was sweet they left a picture on the wall, until I realized there was a gaping fist-sized hole behind it. We noticed shortly after there was water leaking in to the closet from outside. When we gutted the entire place, there was no insulation in the walls and sunlight coming in. And the fireplace literally was removed with bare hands. Needless to say a lot of work went into this room.

Porch After

We redid everything and everything just sort of came together. Unfortunately this room often takes center stage when I return from tag sales and dump everything on the floor until I figure out what to do with it. But here it is, nice and clean. I’m lucky enough to have not one but two Syroco starburst clocks. The one on the right is from my husband’s grandma and she knew I would love it.

Porch AfterIf you follow us on Facebook, you saw my trunk full of vintage globes as I was transporting them to our new location. This is the room where most of them came from. The piano is mint condition from the 1960s and I bought it from a tag sale for $30! It kind of felt like stealing. The lady holding the tag sale said a couple offered her $300. Wow. We’re debating if we should move the behemoth piano with us. I’m thinking yes. It’s so beautiful.

What about you guys? Do you have any Before and After rooms to share? We’d love to see them.

    Ditch the ceiling fan looks dated.
