Family Room Saga

I don't know about you but January is usually the dreaded month for me. the excitement of the holidays are over and now it is just cold and boring. I find myself struggling with ways to keep the girls entertained and longing for the days when I can take them out in the yard and play all day. But so far this January has not been as bad as I expected. I have been in kind of a motivated mood to get some projects done while we are stuck inside. (Last year we waited too long to do our "winter" kitchen project and ended up finishing it in late June...ahhh) As some of you may know, I have a hate-hate relationship with our weird/tiny family room. However, I got a random bug to rearrange it the other day (much to Shaun's dismay who spend hours re-wiring the TV.) And I have to say that although it is still weird and tiny, I am FINALLY not completely hating this room, which is huge progress! I was even able to fit an end table and my vintage door in the corner where the tv was. But the even better news is I convinced Shaun that we need to put up some high chair rail which we plan to do when he is off of work this week and I am hoping will be a simple way to add a bit of charm to this room! I hope to share pictures soon!!! 

 I found this image on Pinterest, which I am using for my inspiration. I like the flatter simple chair rail for this project. I am still not sure what we will do for paint color, I think that will be a game time decision.

  1. Lovely inspiration! That paint colour is gorgeous also.

  2. We all have those love/hate relationships with parts of our homes:) Sounds like you've done a great job being creative with your small space. Pretty inspiration!
