I was going to wait until next year to tackle our family room but came across these inspirations & decided, “OH, I WANT THIS NOW”! Love the white horizontal paneling, barn doors & rustic coffee table. The chandelier’s not to shabby either!

Board & Batten …..I think my dad would FREAK if I suggested beams across the ceiling. I LOVE them though!
This is our family room now, a pretty basic traditional look. It has so many windows & no wall space that I struggle with furniture placement. Any suggestions? This was my parents family room in the main part of the house until 7 months ago. We switched living spaces when my gram, who recently passed away, moved in. My mom loves traditional design & I actually just painted this room 2 years ago for her. NOW, I’m going to paint it white!
Thanks to no internet, TV or phone service, when we were invaded with snow a couple weeks ago, I painted this entire room by myself for 10 hours (over 3 days). Hello Benjamin Moore, White Diamond! Here is a peak at the corner with the fireplace. Any suggestions as to how to incorporate a mantel?
You see the wood? I decided I wanted to cozy up the space & love the horizontal panel look so I asked my dad to help me out. He said NOOOOOOO, not until next year! He’s gone into “winter hibernation” mode….which basically means, he sits in his recliner & watches TV. I will admit, he has always cut most of my wood & helped me with projects so I was totally bummed he wasn’t motivated like I was . The man has every power tool under the sun but they are ginormous & beastly and they scare the CRAP out of me! I tried using his skill saw & it basically ran away with me. So after stressed for a day about how I was going to to do this alone, I went to Home Depot and bought battery powered tools. I love my little 5 1/2 inch skill saw & chop saw.
This thing though, the nail gun, is my dad’s and scares me……but after using it for two days to nail the wood to the wall, we have become friends .
This picture was taken by my camera on a timer! I can’t believe I did that! What a DORK!
So that’s what’s going on around here! My new blog name & blog design is looking good & should be done soon Looking forward to showing you all!
