Family Room Makeover





The ugly wood paneling is finally gone! We spent a whole day with Aaron’s wonderful cousins priming and painting the paneling and I’m so happy with how it turned out. 

Before

After

I was kind of concerned about how the built-ins would look against the white, but I love how nicely the new wall color makes them stand out more. We actually made this TV stand and I'll have a tutorial explaining how we did it in the next few days. 



The new sofa and the rope lamp were found at Home Goods. We intended to keep the Restoration Hardware inspired sofa in that room, however it was too weak underneath and it was really sinking and uncomfortable every time we sat on it, so it had to get replaced. I made the artwork for above the sofa and we got the roman shades from JCPenney. We also got a new light fixture from Lowes.

You can see how bad the carpet was.
Not quite as bad as the green in all the other
rooms, but still ugly.
The new carpeting!

In addition, we got new carpeting to compliment the new paint. It’s super soft and ties in the new sofa well. 



This Ikea chair was also a great find to bring more seating in the room.

It’s still missing a lot of decor, but it’s a great start and we’ve loved hanging out in there so far. 

It feels good to only have two more rooms to redo! Dining room and small bedroom/office just need a coat of paint and some decorating!
