Changes in the Family Room


Hello everyone!

Since I made some changes in the kitchen and foyer, I couldn't leave the family room out, could I?  So here is what it looks like now......again......today.......this minute.......but for how long, I'm not sure.......boy this is a long sentence......!

I changed up my coffee table by adding my blue glass jug, a plant and an open book.


Then, the things that I had on the coffee table moved to the white dresser.


I decided to paint the little tea table grey (big surprise, right?).


Then, I brought in my garden statuary from outside to use by the fireplace.


And, last but not least, I changed the mantel again.  I know, I just can't help myself.  I moved the cherry blossom branches somewhere else (to be revealed in another post).  I replaced them with some Lilly of the Valley flowers.  I added a wicker bottle, old book bundles and book pages along with my antique leather books and a plant.


See?  I told you I've been busy inside.  Of course, now that my allergies are easing up, I've been enjoying some outdoor weather.  Next week is Spring break here, so I plan on working on my front porch and front yard.  Pictures to follow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Kelly,
It's so great to know we're not alone in always changing things up. :-) The blue jug on your coffee table is gorgeous. I really like your mantel with the beautiful old leather books. Glad you still have the doors up there!

Love your changes, Kelly! Sometimes it's nice to move things from one place to another and get a different look. A lot of times, I'm just trying to get a look I like, so I keep moving things around.

I love the look of your family room, very open and relaxed. I think we share a lot of decorating ideas! You mantel looks cute, I could use your help! ;-D

I can't wait to get outside! Our climate is colder so it won't be until mid May, but I'm looking forward to it!

XO,

You really can't go wrong with all those great things to move around. I only wish I had your mantel ambition. I'm already dreading having to change it once Easter is over.
