    My family room makeover! (Lots of preggo nesting took place...) PHOTO DUMP

    Advertisements
    Last month DH and I re-did our "family room." It's the casual room connected off of the kitchen. It's the only room with a fireplace and a TV. We ended up repainting everything, having new carpet installed, buying a new couch, love seat and bookcases, and then relocating other furniture and knick knacks that we'd already had.

    We still need to get an area rug and hang things behind the couch and love seat. I'm thinking a large white or gold mirror behind the couch and maybe a small photo collage behind the love seat. I really like Pottery Barn style, if that makes any difference. Also, we need to hide the cords from the TV and we want to paint the mantle white...eventually re-tile it too. That black mirror leaning in the corner by the couch won't be staying.

    Here's the photo progress:

    The family room before. TV was low to the ground on our coffee table. TONS of toys everywhere. Paint was a nasty pinky beige from previous owners.

    Other side of the room. This is so embarrassing! I hated how cluttered the room was and that chaise couch didn't work, at all.

    Paint swatch above mantle. Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter.

    We ripped out the carpet ourselves. Empty room with paint swatches.

    Decided we liked this best:

    Started to fill it in with the rest of our stuff!



    How it looks as of TODAY:

    Thanks! I'm really happy with it. Just need those finishing touching and it'll be done.

    Oh, and I should add that we hide E's toys in the bottom part of the bookcase on the left and then we put our cable box/xbox and movies in the bottom part of the bookcase on the right Sneaky sneaky!

    Chairs were at Costco last year! Half the price of Pier 1 and other similar stores. Lamps came from Costco too.
