A little over a year ago, I found the wonderful world of blogging. I was amazed at how many fabulous home and decor blogs were out there. Two of my early faves were Mod Vintage Life and Aiken House and Gardens. From there I found others and was inspired to start my own blog. Blogging is a way for me to hold myself accountable with home projects. In order to create a blog post, you need something to blog about. Each week keeps me motivated around the house so that I’ll have something to photograph and write about. Although I’ve been thinking mostly about the kitchen, I’m turning a quick eye to the family room.
This room needs more seating and better use of its space. So some stuff is goin’ and some is stayin.’
I’m keeping the painted blanket trunk. It provides much-needed storage.
I recently changed the curtains from floor length ones to these simpler ones.
I got the idea from Home Is Where the Boat Is. I used landscape burlap which is softer than regular burlap.
I used branches for curtain rods, draped the burlap, and tied knots at the ends. Super easy and cheap!
To make room for more seating, I’m moving this cabinet to the living room.
You might remember this IKEA cabinet from previous posts. It’s my crafting cabinet.
This chair will stay … along with the little kitty.
I get questions about the floor every time I show pictures of this room.
The floors are painted a chocolate brown using porch and floor paint.
The script work you see is a bamboo rug with a rubber backing to keep it from slipping.
The bamboo rugs hold up great with pets. I have 3 of them in my home.
Hopefully I can reveal the changes sooner as opposed to later.
