Creating an Extended Living Space- Phase One

This post is sponsored by SANUS on behalf of Everywhere Agency; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own .

Summer came to an end so quickly. Gone are the days of being able to sit on the front porch after a busy day and unwind, taking in all of the beauty of the property we fell in love with. Luckily, our farmhouse had so much more to offer- including a perfect sunroom! When we first walked through the house, I saw this room, in its unloved, messy state and knew it could be amazing! I knew with some new outdoor carpet (I wanted hard flooring, but the floor would just get too cold), some paint and some life the space could be made new!

On my to do list for the space-

  • Carpet
  • Paint
  • Big Plants & Succulents
  • Make a Narrow Farmhouse Table & Benches
  • New Light Fixtures & Edison Cafe Lights
  • Daybed or Other Comfortable Seating
  • Wall mounted TV (preferably on a tilt mount)

My vision was something bright and airy, white and cheerful, and a touch of bohemian flare. I also wanted a space that would be perfect for date night, with ambient lighting to snuggle up with hubs under and watch a great movie with a glass of wine. Sadly, this room was put on hold while we worked on the inside of the house- but now we are ready to tackle it!

A quick before photo:

Yikes, right?! Jay thought I was crazy with MANY of my visions for how to bring the home to life. Like I said, the first step was paint and carpeting.

For the time being, we’ve got a project table and chairs in the space that I found on Facebook Marketplace, but My plan is to get to work on building the table and benches after the holiday season passes. We have still been enjoying meals out there. The kids really enjoy doing arts and crafts in the bright, cheerful space.

Just because we don’t have furniture doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy relaxing at the end of the day with a great movie! We found the perfect mount for the space by using the SANUS mountfinder! Shopping for a TV mount can be a little overwhelming for me, but this tool made it a breeze!

I knew I wanted something full motion. My plan is to have dining space on one side of the room and comfortable seating on the other and I wanted to have the ability to comfortably view the television from anywhere in the room. Also, to be able to tilt the mount to avoid glare from all of the light that comes into the room. Design wise, it was so important for me to find something really sleek and low profile. When we aren’t watching the TV, I wanted to be able to have it lay almost completely flat against the wall.

The SANUS mountfinder made it so easy to find the perfect mount that fit all of my wish list items! We ended up going with the SANUS Single Stud Full-Motion TV Wall Mount. As the name suggests, it is completely full-motion! The second thing I love is that the mount can tilt and swivel to help me reduce the dreaded TV glare- it’s already proven to be perfect! Lastly, and for me, most important, it’s sleek design. This particular mount can not only extend 14″ while you’re watching BUT it can ALSO be pushed back to just 3″ from the wall! All three boxes on my list were checked off!

The shipping was fast, and the instructions made it super easy to install! All of the hardware needed was provided and hubs had it hung within a matter of about ten minutes!

We also opted to drill into the wall to drop the cord behind it, so no wires had to be seen, so it really all came together really sleek!

Stay tuned for more progress! And Be sure to check out SANUS for your next wall mount!
