Hey Guys! So, I've been racking my brain about this sunroom update that I've been wanting to get underway. I mentioned taking on reupholstering the small cushioned sofa in the last post. I just ordered foam btw - progress - next up, ordering fabric.
This room isn't just a regular old room, with regular old walls and a regular old floor. It doesn't have any of those thing, it does however have a lot of challenges. First of all, it's a sunroom, every wall (seriously all 4) have windows. The interior wall has two windows and a door to our bedroom. It was originally built as a porch, so the floor is slanted down a few inches from the interior wall out to the exterior wall to allow for water drainage - from back when it was open to the elements. Eventually, someone had the porch insulated, walls were built, windows were added, and now it a sunroom with vintage (and not in a cute way) slanted floors. Have you ever tried to place furniture on a slanted floor? It's really hard, because unless you shim all your furniture it looks like everything is about to slide right off the floor, and nothing is even kind-of-close to square with the base of the windows. The best I have been able to manage is to butt the sofa up against the one straight wall and shim a few side tables with 2x4's. Not such a super cool look.
It hit me the other day that I could do something awesome here, I could make a "fauxdenza". Are you familiar with this concept? I've seen it happening more and more over the years, cause it's a really Get the Scoop [...]
