Waterfall Console Table With Round Mirror Reveal + New Wall Paint
Hi there friends! Today I am sharing the first reveal of my family room since painting the walls white. Ahh…it feels like a breathe of fresh air every time I walk in the space, I am so glad I took the plunge. A few weeks ago I mentioned the area under the stairs and how it never felt quite right. I commissioned my nephew, who just started a woodworking business to create a custom piece for the space. I really wanted a waterfall console table, I felt like simplicity and style would work really well in my family room.
Once the piece was made it was imperative it be sealed and well, especially with my boys! My initial thought was to use Minwax Finishing Wax because I LOVE the natural finish it gives. But….after much thought I decided to use the Water Based Polycrylic Protective Finish in Clear Matte. I am glad I went that route, now I don’t have to worry about reapplying. I tested it with a few different colored liquids (yikes!) and it stayed on the surface, success! I loved that it so easy to apply, I used a natural fiber brush and was careful to go with the direction of the wood. Being that is was water based, clean up was also easy.
This isn’t the best before, I rarely photographed this area….
I also created new abstract art for over the mantle. I was inspired by a designer home that had these color blocked prints, since spending $600 per print was out of my budget I decided to make my own.
As I mentioned the walls are now white, I used Snowbound by SW in case you were wondering and I absolutely love them!!!
The large round mirror was a splurge, it was tough to find the right size and they all seemed pricey. If you are looking for a round mirror you might find THIS post helpful.
The baskets are from Home Goods. What do you think of the Blue Belgian Linen Curtains? Oh my gosh, what a steal those were from HG!!! They are lined too!

Have a happy day!
It is beautiful, Jennifer. I particularly like the light airy feel (especially as the warmer seasons approach) that you have obtained with the white walls, light wood and crystal lamps. Whereas it is still somewhat casual it has also taken on a very sleek and elegant feel . Love the simple mirror in Navy that pops the whole setting !
Thank you Mrs. P!! It is a nice change for sure, perfect for summer! Hope all is well, Jen
Absolutely beautiful as always Jen! I love the paint and LOVE the console! It’s perfect! That’s one keeper of a Nephew you have. 🙂
Thank you Erin!!! Hope all is well:)!
I love the drapes, but I’d love to see a little more of them in a picture! I’m trying to decide on drapes for my keeping room. Thought I was going with a pattern, but I’m reconsidering since seeing yours. Thanks for sharing!
HI Regina, I am working on getting some more photos up this week. Honestly, I wasn’t looking for indigo curtain but…as soon as I hung these I knew. Keep a look out for the next post. Jen
