New Family Room Reveal!

Hopefully, you're not tired of seeing this room.  I know I have already shown it several times, so I'm not going to go in detail over anything I've already posted. I spent most of my weekend and this week repainting my family room, bead board and trim.  I decided to go with the same color that I used in my kitchen and foyer.  It is called Linen White by Benjamin Moore.  I'm very happy with the results.  I also painted my armoire that houses our TV (does anyone still use these anymore?). 





That was my 360 degree panoramic tour!  Ha!

I painted the armoire to look something like the one on Deserae's blog, Peeking through the Sunflowers.  I have always loved her style, but when I saw her painted armoire, I thought I could try that.  Her armoire is  intricately carved and much more substantial than mine.  So, mine isn't in the same league, but I tried her tutorial and came up with this.




It's difficult to get a good picture because of the clouds today.  I used Fawn Brindle by Sherwin Williams on it and then dry brushed it with white.  I may go over it with a dark wax later.  It's a nice touch of grey for my room.


Since my walls were painted white, I decided to paint my urns grey on my mantel.


It's hard to see the color difference in this picture, but trust me.....it's grey! 

I have bead board around the perimeter of this room including a hallway that leads to the kitchen. 


So, as you can see, I was wearing white paint for several days!  Glad that I'm finally finished before Christmas decorating begins.  That was my goal. 

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow and gets some rest before the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season begins!

Hi Kelly
I loved seeing your beautiful family room. Your amoire looks wonderful painted. We still have one in our room for the TV. We also have a small one at the lake in one of the guest rooms. One of my girls has dibs on it, if we ever decide we don't want it.

Hope you are enjoying your Thanksgiving. Since our kids were here over the weekend, we are happily decorating for Christmas today.
