When not being used by Addie a goldendoodle the sitting area becomes a guest room wtih a sofa bed
A Little Luxury
A large sofa, covered in washable cotton canvas and embellished with brush fringe, fits perfectly in the cozy sitting area. The wall-to-wall sea grass rug is a budget-friendly, hardworking flooring choice. “The sea grass works great, and I did the whole pool house for less than $500, including installation,” says Donna. “Plus, it looks as good as it did seven years ago when I bought it.”
Donna also incorporates features that she had considered using elsewhere. “I wanted an outdoor fireplace, but by putting it under the porch, we can use the fireplace and the pool house in any weather year-round even if we aren’t really using the pool,” she concludes. With a pool house this great, we think it’s a wonder anyone ever ventures into the pool at all.
