Wicker Re-do and Sun Room Love

You see…there’s this room. It’s the reason we bought our house 13 years ago. It’s my favorite room in the whole house.

Without this room my seasonal depression would kick into high gear usually around October.

This room is attached to my kitchen and is another gathering place for friends and family.

But it looked like this:

So what’s a girl to do?

Well…this girl turns to bookoo that’s what.

This girl buys some white, ugly, broken and dirty wicker for 100 bucks. Hubs and son thinks I paid too much but whatever.

This girl gets to cleaning, repairing, priming and painting. (make sure you do this on the hottest and brightest day of the year so sweat can burn the crap out of your eyes and you can take 4 cold showers in a day)

Now in between coats and drying time make sure you do some of this:

And find you an old wooden toolbox.

Hand-me-down from mam-maw. Miss her.

And paint it.

Then engrave the word “welcome” into the wood.

And paint it.

And don’t forget your ugly terracotta pot. Paint it too. But not the plant. Cover it. Whatever.

And rough up the edges a bit.

So take that seasonal depression. You won’t win this year!
