Family Room Challenge: More Progress

This has been a productive week in the family room!  I gave the room a fresh coat of paint—Cosmic Rays by Olympic.  It is a shade lighter than what was originally on the walls.  After that, Mark framed out all the windows & I painted all the trim.

We switched out the curtains & rods.  The Vilborg curtains from Ikea really freshen up the room’s look.

I also refinished the round side table, which went looking like this:

The Tarva chest is replacing this toy shelf.  I painted it Aqua Bay by Olympic Paints & added some cheap knobs to it.  (It is obviously not styled up…)

I absolutely love Vintage Printable & printed off eight images.  We framed them & hung 4 of them on each side of the fireplace.  You can find the links to each printable on my Family Room Pinterest Board.

Not bad for free art, ay?
