I am so stinkin’ excited to finally share with you my new family room! This post is the reveal. I will be doing more posts with tutorials, details, paint colors, ect. I will also come back here and add the links to those posts as I post them.
But for now, here she is in all her yellow glory :)
Lets do a 360 around the room.
I kept all the same furniture except the entertainment center got moved downstairs. And I added a side table. As far as furniture goes, I only painted one piece and the others stayed the same. I even kept the same layout. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…. right?
Oh man! I wish I could invite you all over to see how bright and happy this space is. The pictures never do a room justice.
During the winter I sometimes splurge and pick up some fresh flowers at the grocery store. I LOVE having cut flowers around my house which I why I plant so many in my yard.
I have searched for YEARS for a small card catalog that I could use as a side table. They are either too expensive or too big or both. So I built this one! (Tutorial coming soon)
The bench that I built use to be upholstered in red. I don’t know a lot about sewing. If I DID know a lot about sewing I would not have picked striped fabric to make this bench cover! Holy moly it was hard for me to line up stripes and keep them straight when I upholstered (AND tufted) it.
Eeeeek! I have a fireplace now :) I am so in love with it and so are are my kids. They have always wanted one. I grew up with a real wood burning fireplace and have miss it so much. I built this baby and added an eletric insert. And I CAN NOT WAIT to show you what secrets it holds………
You know I am all about decorating with meaning. I look forward to sharing with you in an upcoming post why I chose these things for my mantle.
This gallery wall was the first wall done. I would just sit and stare at it. It has LOADS of meaning too.
HERE ARE THE POSTS WHERE I BREAK IT ALL DOWN AND TALK ABOUT EACH PROJECT IN THE ROOM:
Tutorial for the Barnwood Cupboard
Tutorial for painting lead paint: Tin Ceiling Tile Picture Frame
Thanks for taking this little virtual tour of my new space. I can’t wait to get started on breaking it all down. I have so much to share! I will leave you with a before shot of what it used to look like.
