You might have noticed that once in a while we start a project here on the blog and then pretty much never mention it again… leaving you hanging. Sorta like the awesome guy on a date that never calls again. We don’t want to be “that guy,” so today I’m doing a little blast from the past update!
Remember my family room last January?
I was getting ready to stencil some wall panels…
So I painted them and then decided they just weren’t working. Far too much going on…
Since I loved the stencil pattern (just not on that wall), I used it on my outdoor rug!
BUT… I left ya hanging with my family room!
What happened to the walls?
Here’s what we’ve got going on now… I had these two pieces of art in my completely mishmashed piano/craft room, and thought the colors would work in the family room. It took me a few weeks to decide if they worked or not, but I decided I think they do.
Let me be honest with you for a second… I HATE decorating around my TV! (Although, I am thankful for the TV) I’m constantly grumbling about it in my head. There’s only so much you can do around it and to be really honest, I sort of just put together semi-lame mantles because of it. At least I have Jess’ super awesome mantles to drool over!
Even with my semi-lame mantles, I usually manage to find one or two things that I like… This season my light-bulb-meets-lantern is enough to keep me happy!
So, as of right now, my family room is feeling 95% finished. I’m pretty sure that as a mom of four kids, I’m never going to get to 100% and I think I’m okay with that. We play soccer, make Wipeout obstacle courses, and of course make cool forts in there all the time. I never want my design plans to get in the way of that!
So what do you think of the family room walls? Think the art works alright?
