Family Room Re-Do Part 2

DANGER!!!! Construction Zone! Hee hee!!!

Our family room re-do is coming along... slowly!

I wanted to give you a little sneaky peeky of what's been going on.

The walls are painted. Yay!!! I wanted to do Behr's Brown Tee-Pee, which is what I have in the kitchen and breakfast room. I was browsing around the Walmart paint section a few weeks ago, and found a perfect match for Brown Tee-Pee in a Color Place swatch called Gaucho. How could I argue with the price? $12.97 for Color Place as opposed to $18 or so for the Behr. It covered beautifully and we are very happy with the outcome!

Below is a new brown leather chair that we purchased for the room. It has a matching ottoman that you can't see in the pic.

As the room started to take shape, my vision of the finished product changed... several times! Remember all the pretty blue accessories that I had purchased? Yeah, well scrap them! After finding the rug below on EBay, I decided that I wanted a more neutral and calming color pallette. So, I've decided to stick with shades of brown, off-whites and blacks primarily.

Hopefully, I'll have some finished pics to show y'all next week!!!!


  1. Can't wait to see the room~ I am sure it will be fabulous!

  2. I love that chair. It looks so cozy and comfy. Can't wait to see how the room looks when it's finished.

    p.s. wishing I had a little stove like yours sitting next to me right now -- it's chilly here.

  3. That chair is awesome! Cant wait to see the final result!

  4. The chair is very cool! I know the room will look great; you'll decorate it so well. I like the colors you decided upon. Can't wait to see more pics!


  5. Loving this rug ~ I cannot wait to see it all together.


I loove me some comments! Hugs!
