Warning : : Work In Progress : :
I thought I would give you all a quick update on how my family room is coming a long. I have been making a few changes here and there as you will see:
-you might be noticing that these are different than the original ones. Well, these white ones where in my living room and I decided to do a switch a roo (although, now living room really looks like the “poop” room…brown walls, brown couches).
-Still needing some fabulous cushions (can’t get myself to commit to a color or pattern – I think I have issues – ha!
Wall Behind Couch:
-Trying out a flower collage & by trying out I mean popping some pictures up onto some existing nails. Hubby also thinks this is ugly (doesn’t care for old things as much as I do). Thoughts? I have a few more little flower pictures. Could mix in the bird picture and the M’s? And maybe the current mirror over the fireplace.
-I have a call into the painter to paint the mantel white (yay!)
-I picked up this bird picture (which hubby things is ugly but I was feeling a bit of an Anthropologie vibe, myself). I don’t think I’ll keep it there as I am DROOLING over the venetian mirror (last picture). Is it too ornate for the fireplace????? I’ve been wanting one forever and I’ll probably have to wait a little longer but it might be worth saving for.
– The M’s will move but are just sitting pretty for now
-Basket.. not sure about this. Thinking maybe I need to go with a more rustic approach like a wire basket or tin bucket (with wood in it of, course).
-Still need more and more books to fill in the shelves
-Updated the baskets with cloth ones – I like this much better
-This was a garage sale find this past summer. It is kind of hideous but I thought if I moved it into the house I’d get around to painting and recovering sooner than later. So it is waiting for a makeover but I like the spot.
-The pictures above need some softer frames but they will either stay there or go over the fireplace (to the right of the Venetian, should she ever be mine)!
So as you can see there is still work to be done but I’m glad I’m at least moving along and a big thank you to all of you that gave me a push & fabulous inspiration! Cheers!
