Here’s a look at our autumn sunroom at Bluestone Hill! If you’ve been following along for a while, you might have noticed the large framed Gettysburg print that was our great great uncle’s, because it’s made the rounds around the house. I play musical art, which is a nice, free way to change up a room.

When my husband and I lived in our first house, my brother used to claim that we had painted every room 5 times. (He had a little room to complain, since he helped paint a few of the rooms and some siding…and I accidentally dumped a can of outdoor paint all over him and ruined his shirt.) While this is a gross exaggeration, there is truth in the fact that I have a difficult time making a decision and sticking with it.

While this back hallway isn’t the biggest makeover we’ve done here, it was definitely the cheapest! Other than floor paint (I used a leftover can of paint on the walls), the only expenses were the wall hooks and the antlers. The rug, which I just borrowed for photos, is my parents’.

This is the living room that never ends…I can’t believe I actually began painting it last summer! And even though I say it is “finished” there are actually two windows on the wall opposite the doors that need to be replaced because you can feel the draft if you stand right in front of them in the winter, and I’m on the lookout for a narrow table to go along the wall on that side as well.

We recently made a fun change in the sunroom. The left wall had previously had a green and white wallpaper on them, and I had painted right over the wallpaper as a quick fix last spring with Benjamin Moore Wales Gray. The lines where the strips met up were faintly visible, but not too badly.
