Every room makeover challenge, I’m always a little nervous to hit “Publish.”
You guys know I’ll show you the “grit” of my home, but putting it all out there….well….it’s never easy.
But it’s time for another makeover, my friends!
It’s time for the September 30-Day Room Makeover Challenge!
Let me introduce you to my family room.
A few years ago, this is what the fireplace looked like:
I painted it with a fireplace painting kit called Brick Anew (so that the painted brick would look like brick, using a faux finish).
But the rest of the room never got updated!
My Room Needs So Many Things!
Where to start?
- New curtains (I sewed this red silk curtains about 13 years ago)
- Wall paint
- Wall art
- New rugs
- Trim around the window
- New sofa (or at least a slip cover and new stuffing).
- Refinish the coffee table (paid $5 for it at the thrift store!)
- Wall art
- More, more, more!
Here are some pictures.
Go ahead and judge me.
I know…it’s a HOT MESS.
But it’s been neglected. I just didn’t have time to focus on it until now.
It’s a huge room, too! I’m talking 24 feet x 13 feet, I think.
We had a table on this back wall but I just gave it to my mom. I want this back wall to be functional (homework spot for kids, maybe??).
This door leads to my pretty laundry room that I made over last year.
And don’t get me started on this sofa……SIGH….
We’ve had it for 12 years, and it’s gone through 3 kids, and I can’t wait to replace or refinish it!
And that art work.
Don’t ask. LOL
I had found this secretary’s desk at the thrift store for about $40, I think! Or was it $60? Needless to say, it’s just a junk collector. LOL
I found the color that’s going on the wall!! 🙂
I’ve got to paint the kitchen, too! I have to get rid of that school-bus yellow!
This same little hallway off of the family room leads to not only the laundry room, but to my pretty little office basement and to the garage.
I didn’t clean up for this picture, either. I never do. I’d rather just show you the dirt.
This is where my family eats. Imagine feeding 3 kids. Yep.
CRUMBS, yo! Crumbs….everywhere. And my vacuum cleaner is broken. LOL
I’ll be painting that ceiling fan!
A cheapie $60 rug I scored off of Craig’s List.
A huge room, but it just needs a makeover badly!
So there you have it, folks!
If I can show you the grit and grime from my family room, then you can show your room, too 🙂
Check out the previous room makeovers that my readers and I have done!
So which room will YOU sign up for this September? Let’s do this!
