Before and After: A Cozy Sunroom Makeover

Hi All,

I recently completed a project for a client and am so excited to share it with my Blogland friends. So, come on and take a tour of… A Cozy Sunroom Makeover!

A Cozy Sunroom Makeover Before:

My client spends most of her time in her sunroom, reading, crafting and watching television and really wanted it warmed up a bit. The room was a bit dark and cold with a lot of hard surfaces. The plastic folding table she was using as a desk/craft station was not giving the room any character at all either.

The small red glider on the other side of the sitting area really was not very comfortable or inviting.

I started out with a quick little upcycling project. Instead of tossing the old footstool I gave it a redesign.

I removed the cushion and brightened up the base with a few coats of lime green paint.

I created a slipcover for the cushion using a fun, vibrant fabric that would add some life to the room.

A Cozy Sunroom Makeover After:

With the addition of a comfortable, new chair this footstool looks great! I lightened up the existing side table with a few coats of soft cottage green paint.

Due to the size of the room we opted for a small reclining love seat. I made a few custom  made throw pillows in the same fabric as the footstool for the chair and love seat.

The round patterned rug softens the tile floor, anchors the seating area and breaks up all sharp angles in the room.

I replaced the generic, unappealing plastic table with this gorgeous antique table and chair set my client inherited from a dear relative. She now has a cozy place to sit with a cup of tea, to read the paper or do a few crafts. AND it looks great too!

I added some new seat cushions to the chairs with the same vibrant fabric.

This sunroom was once cold and drab but is now very warm, comfy and inviting.

Doing this Cozy Sunroom Makeover was so much fun to design and I am happy to say my client now has a nice place to sit and relax.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Easy Homemade Cherry Crumb Pie Country Recipe

Hello My Dear Blogland Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!

I love to bake but I just don’t have the time to bake from scratch much these days. When I do get a chance to do some baking I have to take the easy road. Today I want to share with you a delicious, easy Country Recipe for Easy Homemade Cherry Crumb Pie, perfect for a summer picnic.

Homemade Cherry Crumb Pie Recipe

Easy Homemade Cherry Crumb Pie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • One Premade Frozen Pie Crust Thawed
  • One Can of Cherry Pie Filling

Crumb Topping:

  • One Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Softened Butter
  • 1/8 -1/4 Cup Chopped Almonds (Optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 Degrees

Place cherry pie filling into pie shell. To make the crumb topping mix the flour, brown sugar, almonds and butter together in a bowl until crumbly. Cover the cherries with the crumb topping. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until crust is brown and the juices are bubbling.

Tip: You can cover the with aluminum foil the last 10 minutes to keep the topping from over browning.

Remove from oven, allow to cool and enjoy! This pie is wonderful served warm with a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream! The next time you are in the mood to do a little baking but don’t have a lot of time try this Easy Homemade Cherry Crumb Pie Recipe. If you are not a big fan of cherries you can easily substitute them with apples and use chopped peanuts instead of almonds. YUM!

Cherry pie is definitely my favorite type of pie and this recipe is very easy to make. I happen to love retro inspired Cherry Decor in a vintage style kitchen as well.

Cherries can add a touch of whimsy to a vintage style kitchen and I love when they are paired up with the color turquoise!

Thanks so much for visiting today! Stay cool!
