My Family Room

My Christmas decorations were put away, and the sun came out (unfortunately a rarity here in January).  My family room was clean, so I ran for the camera!  I’ve shared this room before, but I thought I’d share it in a little more detail.

Neutral Living Room

I’ve done little accessory changes, but the only major change is that I painted over the stripes on the fireplace.  It was fun for a while, but I needed the space to be a little more calming.

Bed Bench in Living Room

On the outside wall that connects the kitchen to my family room, I have my bed turned bench that I painted with chalk paint.  If you want to see more about this project, you can click HERE.

Family Room Clock

Across from the bench, I have a clock hanging on the wall between the kitchen and family.  A friend of mine had one, and I loved it so much I bought one.  I bought it at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago.  It’s awesome because it’s double-sided – you can read the time from the couch or kitchen!

Family Room Fireplace

I always decorate my fireplace with complete symmetry.  I just can’t help myself.


I loved preserved boxwood because they add a touch of life, but they require almost no maintenance (Just a little misting once a month).

Painted Logs

Yes, I painted my firewood.  We used the fireplace last winter, but I almost hate to this year because I love how pretty it looks.  You can see more about this painted firewood HERE.

Living Room corner

I added a little sitting area to the right of the fireplace.  That table was a $5 garage sale find, and I love that it holds magazines.

Tufts and Ruffles

If I didn’t have three boys living in my house, I’d be tempted to decorate in all tufts and ruffles.

Living Room Frames

I stenciled the walls and you can see more HERE.  The frames are from Target, (the framed) fabric remnants were some I had on hand, and the dictionary clip art is from Etsy.

Chicken Coop Coffee Table

My current coffee table is an old chicken coop.  I love this piece, but it’s too small for the space.  I currently have a coffee table ordered, but I won’t see it for several more weeks.

Chicken Coop Upcycle

The coop was a flea market find that I had to have but can’t find the perfect home for…

Painted Piano

My yellow piano sits on the wall that separates the room from the kitchen.  You can see more on how I painted the piano HERE.

Painted Yellow Piano

The keys may be chipped, but I still love this piano…

Piano in Living Room

I found this George Washington (plastic) bust at a flea market and painted him green.  I love pretty books and the cool clock was an Anthropologie after Christmas sale find.

Living Room

The room is painted in my favorite neutral from Valspar: Cincinnatian Hotel Briggs Beige.  I love its warmth. Go create something!
