♥ Reclaimed Living Space ♥

Don't you just love the feeling you get from a "reclaimed room"?  You know the room that was stacked up with something or being used to store stuff and then you get it back and get to enjoy it again?

Well that's what happened with our sunporch.  Since March, we have had a BIG stack of laminate flooring out there, along with the other supplies that go along with installing it.  It was all an eyesore to me.....especially since this is the first room I see when I come in from my carport/garage.  I kept telling myself, "this too shall pass" and tried to just not look at it.  But since a big part of that stack is flooring that will be used in the master bedroom (when we get around to remodeling it), it just wasn't going away anytime soon.  We have too many other projects going on....outside projects....that are keeping us from it.

I finally got to the point of enough is enough.  I'm was not going to go through the rest of my summer unable to really enjoy my sunporch.  So with the help of Joy (and Luke a little too),  we moved the flooring into the house and stacked them neatly under beds.  There they will wait until we are able to get to that project, which will most likely be a winter project.




And with that stack gone, I felt like I was looking at a new space.  What a great feeling!  So, I got busy tidying it up and tweaking.....you know moving stuff around.  And just those little changes made all the difference. I feel like I have a new room and I love it!




Already we have enjoyed sunsets, playing the card game, Uno, snacking, and just sitting out there doing absolutely nothing but enjoying it and each other's company.

That's my necessary crate...for all the pool stuff that will end up on the floor here otherwise.




Sometimes reclaimed living spaces are the best because they feel like new and don't cost a thing! :)



Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!  :)

I love this room...and I can totally understand what you mean.
There's always that one space that seems to get disheveled every now and then.

All the windows make this such a delightful space to enjoy time with one another. I love how cheerful your decorations are. Smart idea to stack the flooring under beds.
Wishing you all a nice weekend. Mildred

It looks very inviting! We have a three season room and it just seems to be where everything we aren't using ends up, lol. I feel so happy when I get in there and sort it all out :) love all your great pics! Have a blessed day!
