Hi everyone! Well I’ve been a busy person since the bathroom remodels! I have been building away!
Bookcases, sofa tables, desks, etc . . . So I have tons to share!
In the meantime I wanted to show you all the redecorating we’ve done this year!
Believe it or not, while all of the bathroom renovations were taking place . . .
I was slowly tackling the family room/kitchen paint and decor!
Ready to see the changes??
Family Room BEFORE:
Family Room AFTER:
I replaced the couch & chair a little over a year ago. I liked the style and shape of the original couch,
but we needed a little more sitting room! So we opted for a sectional this time through.
The light tan color was too hard to keep clean, so we decided on a tweed grey.
So after getting the sectional from Living Spaces, I started shopping here and there for a coffee table!
This took me months! I went through at least 3 coffee tables! ?
This yellow fabric one from IKEA (back room clearance $61!!) was the FINAL winner!
It’s the perfect size, super comfortable for throwing your feet up on it and even playing board games!
This rug was also an absolute MUST when I found it at Target.
I wanted different shades of Grey as the primary colors, but I didn’t want everything to be grey!
I still wanted pops of color here and there. So along with the bold Yellow coffee table . . .
I added some colorful accent pillows, flowers and patterned window treatments.
The Modern Industrial Table behind the couch is my FAVE!
My friend welded and rusted the steel. I constructed the wood top and shelf.
Stay tuned that will be my next post! ?
Now check out the adjoining game room.
Game Room BEFORE:
Game Room AFTER:
I love the colors, but this room still needs some work. It just needs a little more de-cluttering.
Likely I will be moving the chess table (under the window) into our new office.
and I need to replace the rug under the Pool Table for a NON-patterned Rug . . . SOON!
I love the pipe bookcase (post coming VERY SOON!) . . . but the cabinet below it needs to go!
Hopefully soon I will be building a small rustic rolling cabinet that hides all of our board games, etc . . .
All in all . . . I’m happy with the new colors! Sherwin Williams “Pussywillow” is the color on the walls.
It is a very pretty light grey, a very TRUE grey. Which means not too blue, purple or green.
So let’s get moving along in the adjoining Kitchen and Bar Area.
Kitchen & Bar BEFORE:
Kitchen & Bar AFTER:
I really really tried to keep the light grey consistent throughout the space!
I even painted it above the cabinets! BUT I HATED IT!
I don’t know why? I’m not sure if it’s just because my eye is used to seeing a bold color up there or what?
Or maybe it’s because my cabinets are black and I still have old school granite? ?
Whatever the case may be, I ended up painting it this blue color and it was way better than the grey!
Maybe someday if the hubs lets me paint the kitchen cabinets again, and I replace the granite and backsplash. . .
I will paint those upper walls another color. . . until then . . .
Bar Area BEFORE:
Bar Area AFTER:
I made a couple of changes to my wine bar pallet wall,
and also decided to “palletize” the Bar Bar. Details on that POST here.
