Our Last Remodel!!!

Ronnie and I finally finished the "complete" remodel of our home in Levelland!
Our atrium/entry way has been an awkward room from day one. I never knew what to do with it. It houses my hutch because my dining room is being used as the play room.
This winter I put all my plants in there, so Drew renamed the room the "jungle"! Ha!
I decided I wanted to turn the atrium into a sun room/sitting room and....
I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT!
I think I have gone in to admire it a dozen times tonight =)
For $125 we redid the entire room (that includes: paint, decorations, etc.) Not bad, eh?
I can't wait to get up in the morning, open the front door, sit in my comfy rocker, drink my coffee, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy my quiet time in the new sitting room!
Green - Before
Red - After
Saturday Ronnie sanded and prepped the white trim to be painted. He finally finished around 10 and called it a day. We were both exhausted, but I went to bed before he did. When I woke-up Sunday morning he had painted the entire room red to surprise me...I think he said he stayed up until 3:00 a.m. I love that man!!! =)
My new sittin' and ponderin' spot!

Looking into the kitchen from the sitting room!
This is a picture looking outside above the front door. I had these tiles in storage from an Emmaus Walk last September...I am so glad I finally found a place for them!!! Royce (our talented neighbor) made this rocker for me when I had Kade. Isn't it beautiful? I decided I wanted to get more use out of it by putting it in my new room!
The chair after Ronnie recovered it!
Up close picture of the fabric!

This stand was 35% off at Hobby Lobby. I think I paid $25 for it! The mirrors on the wall are from Wal-Mart...I originally had 4, but the boys "crashed" the wall and knocked one down. (You can't have anything nice with two little boys in the house...and I wouldn't have it any other way=) Anyhow... I have had them in the closet for two years now!!! Glad I can finally use the three of them!!!
I got the door decoration at Mardel's on Friday. It was 35% off 45.00!!! Not bad, huh???
Most of these plants were in the atrium before I moved them outside. I bought the Moss Rose to go in the plant stand; Drew picked out the purple Petunias for the big planter!!!

My new mat...it was on sale for 10.00 at Hobby Lobby (over 50% off)

We planted this Crete Mertel last Wednesday...I can't wait for it to bloom!
