We've been loving our new house and slowly but surely finding time for decorating. Our intentions were to do one room at a time...but I'm sure you all know how that goes! We ended up doing a little here and there and not finishing anything! As you saw in our last post-the kitchen was pretty much done (because there was so little to do!!!) and we had planned on tackling the morning room next. But, I had such a hard time deciding on window treatments- so that was tabled (I have finally decided though so we'll be finishing it up next!).
So as things stand now-the family room is closest to being finished! We still plan on buying a new tv and mounting that and possibly doing something new underneath but for the most part it's done! We'll add in some family photos here and there but here's how it looks so far!!!
Family room-looking from the kitchen
Love these old cottage windows!! Best find ever!
We didn't like the look of accent chairs so we found a place for my Grandma's old rocker :)
We decided against a fireplace because of the kids, but that doesn't mean we don't want a mantle!!!
I love functional decorations like these old books (Little Men, Anne of Green Gables, and The Bobsey Twins! all from the early 1900's). We can get them down to read and pop them right back up there! I can't wait to add seasonal decor here too!
This beautiful Victorian dresser was refinished in Arles chalk paint and dark wax...hard to show the beautiful finish in this picture! And that book is a really old family Bible-complete with artwork and a children's story section! Another great antique shop find!
We're really loving how everything is turning out! Next up is refinishing some furniture for the office/computer room. After that we'll be making/putting up window treatments in the morning room and changing out fixtures in the powder room! That should just about finish up the first floor! Stay tuned ;)
