Awhile back I posted this design concept for
our family room, which just so happens to be one BIG
room with the kitchen and dining.
I love how open it is!
Here was my design:
And here's where I'm at:
Craigslist apothecary cabinet I need to fix up.
New natural shades on the big windows.
Here's the day view - we're going to "fix" those
parts hanging down because we would like to protect
the little view we actually have of the water! :-)
Night view - yay! No more fish bowl feeling!!!
We got all 5 of our shades from Select Blinds.
I am in no way affiliated with them and this
is just me speaking as a happy customer!
All 5 shades cost us about $325! That's it - custom ordered!
This is the second time we have ordered from them
and both experiences have been super great. :-)
Here's my view from behind the kitchen bar.
See that peeking out on the left???
It's our barstools! Hooray!!!
Let me tell you,
when you have a bar.
with NO barstools.
I finally looked at my husband and was like,
"Can I just order the barstools already???!"
(He's a trained sheet-metal worker and was a little
nervous, but ecstatic that they are welded and solid!)
I got these from Overstock.com
(Again, no affiliation)
Ok...so some changes:
Two of these chairs, one each flanking the tv console.
Unfortunately, it is currently out of stock and I didn't jump
on getting them quick enough. Crossing my fingers
they get back in asap!
BUT, just in case, I also like this...
What are your thoughts???
I need your opinion! :-)
I've also sold the barcaloungers and coffee table
(both previous Craiglist purchases)
for a nice profit, and still
waiting on the rug and couch to sell.
The hubby put the tv on the wall and
it looks AWESOME! :-)
As I've been looking around for what to fill in the space,
things are always changing slightly
and I'm still debating on the styling of that huge wall!
That thing is a PAIN!
But - I've promised my husband, I'll be super picky, not
rush it, and just get it "right" and not touch the room again for at least
two years or something! ;-)
I know...funny right? Lol
