Been working on this room over the past year, trying not to go broke. How am I doing? The family room. Ever changing, ever messy, ever busy. Well, they don’t call it family room for nothing! Normally it is a mess. But when the kids go to bed and the husband is in the shower, I can take pictures of it clean! This is not a room of “Ooh, ahh, Fancy!” It is place for people. 99.9% of the time there are toys all over, blankets wadded up or thrown on cold kids, pillows everywhere and the dogs sleeping on the floor. This is also the room in the center of the house. No windows, no natural light. When we moved in it was so dark. Dark wood paneling, dark faux wood beams. Dark fireplace, with a way to small mantel, way to large and high mirror. Dark brass ceiling fan with no light, hanging from a hook! HA! But with some cleaning and paint, and ripping up the old carpet, it was a diamond in the rough. Lots of space, french doors, brick fireplace that speaks to the outside of the house. Yes, even the fake beams could be a total gem with a little work.
