I am so excited about our guest poster today!!!  I found Jenna Sue’s beautiful blog a couple of years ago, and I immediately fell in love with her style.  Her blog is probably one of my absolute favorites right now, and if you haven’t ever visited it, you are in for a treat!  Today she is sharing with us her gorgeous sunroom makeover!  Enjoy, and give her lots of Beneath My Heart love.  





Hello and happy summer, Beneath my Heart friends! This has always been my favorite season—though I live in the mountains of California now, I’m a tropical weather and beach girl at heart so I have very fond memories of our home back in Florida.


My favorite room from that house and the biggest transformation was our sunroom. It was the embodiment of the eternal summer coastal Florida vibe and held many great memories for us.

We renovated the space over a five week span using lower cost materials and plenty of DIY, just in time for our official summer kickoff party.

Here’s how it looked before we bought the house:


Then after we threw some furniture in:


We broke this project down into several stages.

Phase 1: Building a secret cat outhouse:

Phase 2: Tearing out the ceiling panels, adding insulation and a new humidity resistant drywall ceiling (with recessed speakers and lights)

Phase 3: ‘Wood’ tile flooring



Phase 4: Building the beds, coffee table and console table


Phase 5: Accessorizing

We were so in love with the after.

A sunlight filled room where we could look out over the pool or catch the turtles swimming in the lake…

The perfect place to take an afternoon nap or cool off from the summer heat…

A lookout point for our kitty to observe birds and lizards…

Or just a restful retreat for guests to relax in when visiting.
