Our Family Room

Here is Part II of my last post...the Family Rooms turn.

Who else agrees that cotton white slipcovers were the best invention ever? I think they look & fit better with every wash.

Mine get washed a lot.

I didn't add anything new. Just a quick re-arrangement of an old collection made it feel like something was new.

This zebra chair was actually a thrift store rescue.  Click here to see what it looked like before along with a quick tutorial.

Now, if only I could make it bigger...

Loving what I have...

Our home is starting to show it's age. The original plan was to stay here for three years and then move on to something new. We have now been here for 5 years. If you are from Michigan, you know we aren't going to be moving any time soon.

You also know that we are lucky to still have our jobs and our home.

So, I have decided to appreciate what I have. I started to go room by room and freshen things up. This week it was the Main Entrance. Nothing major happened here, just a few tweaks that didn't cost a lot.

The front door got a fresh coat of Martha Stewarts "Barn Red". I used Faux Iron Finish spray paint in flat black to re-new the tarnished door knob and knocker.

The Brass kick plate added a little *bling*

Hanging baskets with Geraniums and Ivy brightened up the porch.

Inside the front door, the foyer got a little TLC...

Fresh paint (Martha Stewart "Coir"), a new wool rug.

A sheer sidelight panel added a little softness and privacy.

The tile grout was starting to look gray so it got a new look with an off white grout paint. A little detail that made a big difference. The light oak banister was updated with cream colored paint to match the trim.

My giant rusty tin stars from Mexico got a face lift with the Iron finish spray paint.

Lastly, I scored these over sized canvas prints at Home Goods. They were just what the wall going up the stairs needed. The theme of children & candy was too perfect.

I think I might fall in love with our house all over again...Thanks for stopping by.
