Home Tour: The Family Room

It’s only been a few months since I revealed the family room makeover, but since I took the pictures with my old camera, I thought I would take more with my fancy camera since it is much better quality.  (Same novice photographer who can no longer blame the camera for poor quality!)

 Colorful Family Room

One of the first things you see when you enter the family room is the DIY mirrored cabinet my husband built.  I love this table so much I want him to build another one for the morning room!

DIY Mirrored Cabinet

This makeover began with the purchase of two Danbury Sofas from JC Penney’s.

The old, rectangular coffee table no longer worked with two full-sized sofas,

so we built a large, sturdy, stylish coffee table that makes a great spot to prop your feet.

I struggled with how to style it, but I’m so happy with what I came up with, without spending any money!

I was able to score this Jaipur rug for a great deal at a local store called Bargains & Buyouts.

During the makeover, I refinished this wooden table I found on Craigslist & easily styled it with an orchid & some frames.

Side Table Styling

We took apart our old DIY entertainment center to create this space for electronics & toy storage.

After detaching & shaving off some of the bulky base piece, it got a coat of black satin paint & pretty gold hardware.

DIY TV Console

We added doors to the bookcases to conceal game, puzzle, book, & toy storage.

An Ikea dresser got a coat of turquoise paint, & took the place of cluttered cube storage.

It’s hard to believe that just a few months ago, this room:

looked like this:
