We're gonna get right down to business, friends. ;)
This is what you used to see when you entered the Family Room...
Sold our old sectional and bought the Ikea Ektorp sofa and loveseat in Biege. (100% washable - awesome with the kids!)
Painted the yellow-gold walls with Sherwin Williams Sea Salt.
We moved the tv onto a different wall.
Bought and jazzed up some Ikea Billy Bookcases to fake a built-in look.
Painted the brown fireplace white.
Grabbed that trunk from our bedroom (where it wasn't being used) to use as a coffee table.
Bought a slipcover for the striped gold chair.
Sold the leather chair.
Added molding to trim out the windows, bought bamboo shades from Lowes.
Added crown molding.
Stapled Target curtain fabric to two dark brown pleather ottomans we had to make them fun again.
Painted 2 of the existing 3 end tables, and picked up one from a yard sale for $30 and painted it also.
Bought some pillows and accessories, spray painted a bunch of existing items and here we are!
Some more fun before and afters...
Is everything exactly as I want it to be? No, but since money doesn't grow on trees, I made what I had work for the time being. Like the slipcovered chair - not a fan, it's a huge chair, and I would love to have a set of smaller chairs with a little table in between on that wall, but hey, at least the slipcover makes it match the rest of the room, and with the white throw and cute bench beside it, I'm fine with it. (It is CRAZY comfortable too, so that's a plus;).
You might remember the post I did on this table -
Button Art Project beneath it.
You might notice this table in the before...but it was brown:)
all about it here, in case you missed that post. That glass lamp is from Target- can't wait to fill it for the holidays! (Pillows from Ikea and Target)
I love those Ikea pillows so much, I had to grab two. Here it is paired on the loveseat with a Marshalls pillow...
a Gallery Wall!
And it's so cozy at night! Not sure if I love it more in the bright daylight or when the sun goes down...
Here are some links to other projects you might recognize in these pics:
HomeGoods Bird Cage
Free Chalkboard Art
Girls Night Fall Button Art
Wanna see something really fun?
Check out the VERY before - our Family Room when we were about to move in...
So there it is! Hope you like it! I am LOVING it. Wheels are spinning with Christmas decorating ideas now - working with an entirely different color scheme now! You know I'll keep you posted!
And Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
