from shabby to shabby chic


the sunroom off the kitchen...


is very messy and uninviting.


we throw junk in here so it looks just awful!!



it makes me feel frustrated and depressed whenever i look at it...



and is embarrasing when people visit.

so Ta Da!!!!
introducing........my new and improved Shabby Chic sunroom!!!


it's pretty and cosy............


I can sit here and enjoy the sun and look out at the garden...



and Archie and Eddie love to lounge and nap on the settee.


i've brought it some pretty things like this shabby chic tray.



I'm still going to add more shabby chic elements:

a glass table for magazines, books and plants
paint the one wall a nice light green
put up lots of cute framed pictures of flora or romantic imagery

I can't always sit in this room, as we get the afternoon sun and it heats up to an uncomfortable level. It's perfect for the morning or early evening though. It will eventually be a delightful little room that i can retreat to with my tea and cookies, while reading the latest issue of Country Living.
I will post more photos when the i make more changes.....i am so happy now when i look at this room, hurrah!!
