I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
It has been a busy few weeks, trying to wrap up some finishing touches on our family room.
It has taken some time & LOTS of patience
but I am happy to say I am finally done,
We bought this home 2 years ago & all along I had a vision for this room but…..
with so much to get to & decorate I had to put this room on the back burner for a bit.
So instead I re-used the furniture I had & made it work for the short term.
Slowly, I began adding in the pieces that I wanted
& finally bought the sectional a few months ago.
I don’t think I am alone in saying that,
sometimes we want so much for our home to look a certain way,
the way we see in magazines but we forget that these
things take time.
A room that is layered & filled with items and details that you LOVE evolves,
I had to tell myself this a few times:).
This family room makeover was done on a ridiculously
I do believe that making your home pretty
doesn’t have to break the bank.
I shopped thrift stores, flea markets, outlet stores,
I repainted, recovered, sewed, re-purposed, made and built things myself
to save some $.
I wanted them to resemble burlap,
I pre-washed each panel before sewing them to give more texture.
Vintage Stereo was only $10, a steal right?
Walls, Valspar/ Natural
Chair-Estate Sale find from Southampton, NY-$35.
Covered in a lined casement silk,
it was in perfect condition, I just had the upholstery cleaned.

I have to say I really do LOVE this sectional.
I have washed the covers several times & they come out perfect,
for tips for keeping it pretty.
Storage under table for real life STUFF:).
See I told you this room was functional,
more storage for the TOYS.
Have I told you how much I LOVE this table yet???
This was one of those “can’t get it right projects,
until finally the light bulb went off in my head.”
Don’t you just LOVE when that happens?
More storage for our stuff:).
I love silhouettes & nature.
We have an abundance of deer in our neighborhood
& we just adore when they come down our way for a visit.
I had to throw this in, our puppy(11 going on 1)Murphy,
he LOVES this spot,
he can see ALL that goes on in the neighborhood.
Thank you for taking the time to take this photo tour today:).
Please email me with any questions, I am always happy to answer.
Have a great week,
