Are you sick of looking at pictures of my family room? Wait..Don't answer that! Because I have a few more to show you. In my last post, I told you I was contemplating what to do about the behemoth plaid chair and coffee table that were totally outdated and didn't go with the current decor. And by contemplating, I mean I stewed about it non stop. I can really smother a project. It's not like I don't have anything else to worry about. My kids had to audacity to ask for dinner sometimes...little did they know I was stressing over a big ugly chair. They are so selfish...
Any who, over the weekend, the chair went bye-bye! I found this lovely one at Down East Home and my mom and I hauled it home.
Next up was the ottoman. After much soul searching, I decided that I needed to go with a brown leather ottoman instead of the other choices, namely, a red leather one or a burlap looking upholstered number from Target. I got the new ottoman at Sweet Briar Hollow. My only concern was the fact that it was a large square instead of a rectangle. I didn't know if it looked right in the room. But once we moved the armoire, it looked more centered and balanced.
After having it my home for less than 24 hours, I was convinced I made the right choice. The kids have been playing King of the Mountain on it. Sammie has been doing gymnastics all over it and three kids can lay on it to watch tv (which is why I wanted an ottoman instead of a coffee table.)
The thing looks indestructible and my house is the perfect place to test its durability.
The whole space finally feels DONE. What a relief. We had to move the armoire over to the right about a foot so my large family photo had to be moved to the other wall by the hutch. My dad already helped me hang it.
Now, I sit in the room and marvel at how much better it looks. Now you all can go ahead and tell me how much better it looks! I'm waiting....
