Instead of a "My World" post, I thought I'd just share photos I took recently of my Family Room. For the first few years we lived in this house, it was my least favorite room. I kept tweaking it and trying a few different looks but it always came out bland.
Then one day... as I was looking at a photo of French doors in a magazine... I was thinking how beautiful they were. Then I thought, "Wait, mine look kind of like that behind those ugly drapes!". Wallah, down came the drapes and the beautiful woodwork was shown in its' glory and that was the beginning of the transformation. About seven years ago... so I'm slow.
But I like where it is now, kind of an outdoorsy meets cottage meets 1990s era furniture mixture. But it works.
|The woodwork that was hidden by ugly drapes. The blinds are at that level so Victoria can see outside the window.|
|Scene from the Lazy Boy recliner. That is a feather tree on the mid-century corner cabinet. Christmas clearance purchase. But like so many Primitive decorative items, it looks good displayed all year long.|
|I just returned that lamp back to the Family Room where it belongs.|
|My daughter-in-law gave me the calendar for Christmas. It is perfect there!|
|The vintage suitcases hold old Victoria magazines.|
|Our old sofa that has been through kids and teens and has pillows under the pillows. But it works... Love the rainbow|
