We wanted to hammer out our family room before our friends came to visit (yes, we need deadlines in this house!) and so hightailed it to the mall/Target/Homegoods a couple of weeks ago for those finishing touches. And now it is done. Woo hoo!
It is our strategy in this place to concentrate on one room before moving on to others. It feels way less overwhelming that way. Our next stop? My office. Then our bedroom. Or maybe our half bath. But back to the family room for now.
And of course, this post wouldn't be complete without some before/after pictures.
If anyone is curious, here's where we got our stuff:
Vases: Crate and Barrel
Couch/Sofa Table/End Table/Coffee Table: Hand-me-downs from Josh's parents
Chair: Borrowed from our dining room
Lamp: West Elm
Wall Art: Bellcor (but inspired by Pioneer Woman, of course)
Other Accessories: Hobby Lobby, Target, IKEA
The one piece of this room we hadn't originally planned on is now one of our favorites. We pulled our main computer down from the upstairs office and put it in the family room. This is the computer where we store all of our pictures and music, and when either of us were using it before it just seemed so isolating to sit upstairs. Now, since the computer is in our family room, we can be part of the action when we're using it. Plus, we found a cheap desk at Target that matches the mission style furniture we have in other parts of this room. Bonus!
