|Greg's going to kill me for using this picture :). |
It's the only "before" shot I have showing the whole family room I swear!
At last, 14 months later, the family room is finally finished (for now)!! It took me over a year to finish ONE room in our house. At this rate it's going to be a longggg time before the whole house is done. But when I look at the before and after pictures, it really has come a long way. And of course there have been other small and large (the deck!) projects during this time too.
I was going for a rustic/traditional style with this room. I'm not really an "earthy-tones" type person; I favor cooler grays and I reallllly love distressed wood. I have also been really into pops(!) of color lately and have been going mostly with orange, teal and lime green. [I didn't purposefully copy Young House Love's color scheme, but maybe I subconsciously got my inspiration there.] Knowing how often I change my mind I kept most of the "pops" to easily changeable accessories.
Here's more photos of the finished product (there's some other photos on Part 1 of the Family Room Reveal)!
|My chalkboard wall between the morning room and family room, which displays my|
"wishlist" and current projects with % complete for each. Nerd alert!
|Are you tired of seeing these chairs yet? I have been told by people who shall remain nameless that I might be going a little overboard with the chair sharing. What can I say... I'm in love!|
|Another "before" angle|

forever and get so much use out of.
Here are some photos of one final area that I'm still not sure what to do with. I plan to do something like this in the space next to the couch. I can't figure out what to do decoration-wise on the wall behind the couch. I like the pictures I have there, but I don't think they take up enough vertical space and look kind of lost on this wall. I can't decide whether to add another row, mount them on wood backing similar to this, or just scrap the frame idea and try something totally different. Any ideas??
