The "Inspiration Workshop" this week is Show off your Family Room.
I want to start off by saying that I love, love, love my family room. It doesn't belong in a magazine by any stretch of the imagination, but it is where we spend the majority of our time as a family.
We moved into our now house a little over a year ago. It was a complete mess, which allowed us to get a great deal on it. It is not a big house, but one of its best features is the large size of the family room.
Here is the before:
We (with our amazing, talented, and patient brother and sister-in-law) remodeled the whole house. We still have some minor things to finish, such as painting the molding, touching up paint on the walls, etc.
Here it is in all its glory (aka messiness):
We have a toy corner in the room, which is essential for any family room, right?
Here is the wall that used to have a large mirror on it (the one with the shelves) and our tv wall:
Lastly, I will throw in a few pictures of my Fall decor from the family room:
Well, that about sums up my living room. I love looking at other people's houses, so it was a change to show mine.
