I have posted plenty of photos of our family room. But they have been very sneaky.
Here is a photo you have seen many times of the dining table in our family room.
Plus you have seen a few photos looking into our kitchen from the family room. Then last week I posted this photo. It was taken looking into the direction of our entry way.
But, there is a side of my family room that you have never seen. You know how most people have a couch and/or chair that they sit on? Perhaps to play games, visit with family or watch tv?
Well, we have one of those too. We have a nice seating area in our family room, but I have been too embarrassed to show it. So here goes …
Yep. That couch. Hmmm. Seventeen years ago it was very chic and in style. Now? Not so much. The good news? It's a slip covered sectional from Pottery Barn. The bad news? It's a 17-year-old slip covered sectional from Pottery Barn.
I won't bore you with the saga of trying to order a slipcover from Pottery Barn. (I will save that for another blog post.) But this couch is a perfect size for this room. And new sectionals cost a bloody fortune. Unfortunately, new sectional slipcovers cost a lot too.
On the bright side, the new chair I bought at Pottery Barn looks great in this room! It's amazing to see what some bright white does to this room!
So I am going to have the sectional spruced up (with more stuffing in the right places) and a new slipcover made to kind of match the chair. Then I will replace the rug in a neutral color. Finally, I am redoing all of the art. As in me personally. More about that later. 🙂
My design plan has this family room project completed in mid-September.
The final issue is the coffee table. But that's a long story and I need your advice. Stay tuned for that blog post later this week.
