Step One: Remove what you don't want.
First things first, the carpet had to go! Underneath was decking that was in pretty good shape, just a few paint splatters here and there.
Step Two: Add some ambiance!
The beautiful cedar cathedral ceiling needed to be highlighted so we hung up some icicle lights. It really makes the outdoor space cozy at night! My husband had to put in a temporary light switch until he makes the sunroom bigger :) and can add switches. (so don't look at the wires hanging on the wall...)
We also replaced the two outdoor lights on either side of the door to go better with the theme.
