We were really excited when we heard about this screened in sunroom needed a makeover! We hadn’t tackled an outdoor space yet for Knock It Off, and we were bursting with ideas.
Here’s where things started…
And here’s where we ended up…
We created a space that was fully comfortable, much more weather-proof, and filled with style- all on a small budget!
Soon we’ll post tutorials for the sectional, plant wall, how to paint siding, and the painted rug, but for now, here’s some eye candy from the makeover!
This drink station is actually a fold down table. When it’s not in use, you can attach it to the wall and it looks like artwork. It was incredibly simple to make and such a great thing to have for entertaining.
We wanted to set this space off as a room of it’s own, so we went bold by painting stripes on the exterior siding. It added a huge pop of color and just made the space super cheery (and I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true!). The plant wall was much cheaper than large artwork and also helped with our goal of bringing the outside in!
We were excited that we not only gave the homeowners an entire sitting area with the sectional, but we were also able to give them a little dinette where they could enjoy a meal (or soft pretzel!) outside!
These solar lanterns are from Ikea and you should see how fun they look at night! We added so much mood lighting that we almost wished we could have revealed the room at night! Our producers told us night reveals are a no no 🙂
And the sectional… ahh we loved how this turned out!! We know many bloggers have built outdoor furniture, but this was our first attempt at it (we didn’t mention that to the homeowners of course!!) We basically decided how large we wanted the sectional, did a lot of math to determine how big each piece should be, and then crossed our fingers. Amazingly, it was really simple to build once we had a plan! We’ll write a full post on our build within the next week!

Do tell, what was your favorite part of this Sunroom Makeover?
I’ve been a big fan of your blog for a long time and I am now obsessed with your show. I wish there was an episode every night of the week! I absolutely loved this make over. You guys did a fabulous job!!
Love this transformation. lots of color and fun!
My two favorite parts of your sunroom makeover was the alternating paint colors on the wall behind the plants and the plants themselves in galvanized pots. Just loved those pots!
Please post directions for the fold down table and how to attach to wall-very clever and space saving!
