Family Room Refresh

We have been in our current home for about 15 months and I am tired of having every room feel unfinished. Teaching full time sucks the creative energy out of my soul. But it has come to the point that I can't stand it any more. So even though we are still renting it doesn't mean we can't have a home that is decorated just for us. A home with our touch.

Our family room is a room we use the most, and every time I walk into the room, I am bothered that it doesn't feel finished. My goal for the space is to create a gallery wall behind the TV with some artwork by a good friend and my daughter, to cover up the random outlets that are of no use. Hoping to find a mirror to hang on the fireplace which has the most godawful stonework known to mankind. Wanting to give this room a more completed feel by adding layers with more fabric for pillows, an area rug, a new coffee table and a few ginger jar accessories.

This was the room when we moved in. (Bad, bad, bad photo)


Furniture has been since rearranged and drapes hung but it lacked oomph.

Here is my plan.

The fabric has arrived, just needing time to sew a few pillows and hang artwork. I bought frames at Ikea and had custom mats cut at the local art shop. Posterjack has offered one of their new loft frames, which is enroute as well! After years of admiring this rug, I think I will try to convince the hubs that we need it in our lives. It is my birthday this weekend, maybe that will make him cave.
