Good Morning Friends! I am feeling about 95% today which is a lot better than I felt last week. I did muster up enough strength to play Musical Furniture and score some free coffee tables but the rest of the time I was doing a whole lot of nothing. Unless you count blowing my nose and smearing thick layers of vaseline on my lips and nose area. Needless to say, my hubby thought I was looking pretty hot, he couldn’t wait to kiss me, I told him no.
Last Friday we were deciding on which furniture arrangement looked best in the family room after I had finished painting it Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore. The leather for sure has been moved out to the living room and the white couch and chairs are staying in the family room. I went with this layout here, seeing as #4 was quite the popular pick and I really liked it as well.
I decided to switch the furniture as Kristi & Vanessa suggested and we have a winner! I am borrowing the pillows from our master bedroom for right now to use on the couch and chair, they just look so good down here. I also added the afghan my grandma made me for my wedding on the back of the couch.
This is one of the free coffee tables I picked up on Friday from a furniture consignment store. I love it!
The mantel has a hodge podge of stuff on it right now, including this awesome gold bamboo and linen frame I paid $5 at the consignment shop where I scored my free coffee tables. I am envisioning some flamingo art in there soon.
I picked up this picture at Savers the other week for $2. I am hiding the light switch outlets behind here. This chair and table are temporary until a find a chair that is a better fit for this corner. It works for now.
Here is where the brassy lassy coffee table lives for now with the leathers in the living room with the kitchen we built for the kids. I would like to move the entertainment center turned kitchen into the basement playroom but hubby thinks it might be too heavy. Boo.
The brassy lassy is a great table for serving food at, especially when your kids make the menu.
The menu includes Zertis Fleisch. What is Zertis Fleisch you ask? That’s a darn good question and if you know the answer, please let me know because it is German.
It looks like Ruby might have even tried Zartes Fleisch judging by the chew marks on the can.
I want the new Martha Stewart Sunburst Mirror from HD for over the fireplace which I will be purchasing later this week. It’s my $35 splurge for this room as I usually like to CL or thrift things for the home. I need to make or find some pillows for the couch too but all in good time.
Here is a little before and after:
I’m loving the lighter and brighter look, what do you think? Did you do anything fun this weekend? Rearrange any rooms? I’d love to hear from you!
