This is what our back porch room looked like when we bought our house. Everyone who walked in to this room gasped and said “How Cool – You’re not going to change this are you?” Yes, everyone. The only 2 people who didn’t feel quite so attached to the black, white and red were the Hubs and I. Yes, it was probably super cool when the past owners lived in this house. They loved all things vintage 50’s including classic muscle cars. I even heard through the neighbor grapevine that this room was covered in old vinyl records and even had a big popcorn machine in the corner. Very cool!

So when we set out to change this room, I knew I wanted it to be bright, cheery and sophisticated. Did I mention that we started this project in October? Yep, it’s true. October. That’s a long time to be living with dust, dirt, shop vacs, ladders. You get the picture.
