Family Room Makeover: Before & A Plan

If you have skimmed my blog over the past year, you may remember when we got new sofas for the family room & I declared that I was going to make some changes.  Well, that little post was written in January, & since then, very little changes have actually been made to the room.  Luckily, Linda, from Calling it Home has given me a swift kick in the rear to actually get these projects going!  (Okay, Linda hasn’t literally kicked me…she doesn’t even know who I am!)  Anyway, she is hosting a One Room Challenge linking party, where participants have six weeks to redo a room in their home.  I am using this challenge as motivation to finally get my family room into shape.

Last fall I participated in the challenge & re-did my kids’ shared bathroom.  Here’s how that turned out:

and after…



The above is an updated picture of the bathroom that better reflects the colors.  You can see more of them here or go to my One Room Challenge Reveal here.  I still am so happy with how it turned out!  Hopefully, I’ll feel the same way about our family room in six weeks!

Here is the current state of the room:

 



So, now for the plans…  (You can see my original plans here.)

OB-Family Room 2

Here is what I plan to accomplish in six weeks:
  • Repaint walls Cosmic Rays by Olympic Paint (a lighter shade of the current color)
  • Add trim around windows
  • New curtains & rods
  • Refinish round side table
  • Build coffee table
  • Build TV cabinet (similar to the cabinet in the bottom left corner)
  • Tweak current bookshelves to have doors (similar to the top left bookcase)
  • Build a console for behind the couch
  • Accessorize (art, pillows, lamps, flowers, etc.)
  • The rug & accent chairs have already been purchased
I have no idea how these things are going to get finished in just six weeks!  It looks like my husband has a lot of building in his future.  Wish us luck!

  8. Bravo on the bathroom! I have to say I like the room in it's current state, but love your mood board and inspiration! I can't wait to see it all come together! Good luck! My first ORC was this past spring and I'm in it again on making my daughter's room a big girl room!
