A Updated Sunporch Reveal

Hello yall, I hope everyone is good. I have been away from blogging for awhile. Well I have decided to start working on one room at a time in my house. I have found it to be too confusing working on more than one room at a time, do anybody else experience that?
The first room you see when you enter my house is this sunporch. I love to sit on the sunporch and have a cup of coffee, it's just a relaxing space.

This space greets my guest as they enter my house. It was dull and lacked color. The cushions were flat and faded. I wanted to decorate this space on a budget and with things I already own. The sunporch is spacious and I knew I wanted to use the exiting furniture.
This is the design board that I created for the space.

I wanted to bring in a dash of color and different textures. I wanted the space to be comfortable, with a bit of glam.

I decided that this brown color of the furniture had to GO..... A trip to Menards for spray paint was first on the list of things to do. I chose a black gloss spray paint.
In progress of a transformation.

Because I can't sew I did have to purchase some new cushions. Garden Ridge had all their cushions priced 50% off so I scored a set of damask cushions.
I layered the zebra stripe rug and the green jute rug I picked up from thrifting, I knew I would use them one day. The serving tray table, accessories, and ottomans were items that I pulled from other rooms. For additional storage I used my old leather suitcases that use to sit in my foyer.

So here is the Updated Sunporch.

A veiw in the evening.

Had the hubbie to hang a chandelier.
I decided to use this green croc print ottoman which was in my basement
instead of the ivory one what do you guys think?

These vintage suitcases provide extra storage.

I still have a little work to do to mark this space complete.
a, Twill ivory drapes with grosgrain ribbon trim.
b, Tweaking the accessories, maybe some seasonal decorations.
c, Replace chandelier shades.
d, Purchase a cream throw.

What do you guys think? I'm moving on to the livingroom.
