It wasn’t slid in the exact spot here yet – they had just delivered it when I took this pic. And the lovely plastic floor guards will be moved once we get a rug. But it fits the space perfectly!
I love the rustic, reclaimed wood, farmhouse vibe so this look really appeals to me. Not so much to my mom who pointed out when she was here last that my coffee table might give her slivers. :)
This is also a much better solution for us because every night after the kids are in bed our coffee table is piled high with papers, magazines, laptops, my lemon water, Kenny’s Coke Zero, stuff we are working on. We needed something flat and durable. :)
I haven’t started styling my media shelves yet. I’ve just been rounding up a few things I might use…
These beautiful blue glass bottles were a Christmas present I
relentlessly begged slightly suggested Kenny could get for me. I’m not sure if I’ll use them all together like this or split them up.
I found this beachy sign at Home Goods for 10 bucks and put it up debating if I should bring some orange in the room with the aqua. Not sure about that one??
Also at Home Goods I picked up these beautiful lanterns! Love them. I especially love that one of them has a silver handle and one of them has a rope handle. They won’t go in this space – I don’t like the white against the white. But I know they will find a happy home somewhere!
I loved the dutch coffee table so much that I also ordered the console table that matches it for the right side of the fireplace.
I wasn’t sure about this console table at first, but now I have fun plans for it so I think it’s a keeper. Unless I change my mind tomorrow. Maybe that’s why I shop at Restoration Hardware so much. They are really good about returns. Which makes them really good for indecisive people like me. :)
I ordered something for the left corner of the room that I’m so excited about! I’ll show you as soon as it gets here. I’m dying to figure out something big and tall to use as a backdrop for my mantel – a mirror? Reclaimed wood? Not coming up with anything for that yet. My mantel is hard because it’s so big and deep. Everything I put on it looks too small and out of scale.
So here are a few pics of my family room in its current, incomplete state…
It’s a start! Progress. I’ve chosen curtain fabric for the french doors and some of my pillow fabric too but this post is quickly turning into a novel so I’ll share those swatches later. Would love to hear what you think so far! Unless you hate it. And think my coffee table will give you slivers.
