Family Room Update

January 13, 2011

Remember when I shared our family room make-over?

 I love how it looked for Christmas. But once I had to take down all of the Christmas decorations, it looked a little....well sad. 

So I did what any budget savvy girl would do. I shopped the house! Shopping the house means you "shop" around what you already have and pull items that you aren't currently using and see what you can come up with. I found all of these items just sitting around collecting dust in various closets and baskets.
And here is the room now.

 Mantle display complete with mason jars that used to be my grandma's. 

Pine cones in a mercury glass vase. Adorable and easy.

 More mason jars. I'm sort of obsessed.

 I found a great home for my yarn wrapped letter. I also am so excited about the mason jar photo. It says "it's the little things" on it and I love it. Erin and I found it here.

Some more updates include finally finding the perfect shelf to display our family photos. It took forever to find one that 1) I liked, and 2) was inexpensive. Hobby Lobby to the rescue again!

I also found the perfect basket from Target to hold all of our games and remotes under the coffee table. 

I'm still working on window treatments, but so far I'm happy with how the room turned out! Now, what should my next project be???
