For the 2nd time in three days, the family room has been rearranged. If you have been reading here long, you know that is not very shocking. This room gets rearranged A LOT!! Why? you ask. Mainly, because the room is so long and narrow, with a fireplace on one end and windows on the other, plus two doorways... not to mention one very huge sectional sofa. So this leads to a lot of rearranging to get it just right, where there isn't awkwardness or wasted space.
And this time of year, you add in one large Christmas tree, the poor family room becomes a moving sea of furniture!! But don't worry. I think I finally found a good layout for the next couple of months.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, I added a big hutch to the room!...
Ya, it looks really sad at the moment, but over the next few days it will be brought back to life. I have to fix the trim on the top, fill in some holes, and repaint the whole thing(and the drawers aren't missing, they just aren't in it right now).(see here). It was actually really cute as a kitchen, but it wasn't being used much anymore and just taking up space in the boys' room. So back it came to be used as a hutch(and one more surface to decorate!).
I cleared out this corner by the fireplace for the Christmas tree. I know the emptiness will bother me until the tree goes up, but I will get over it.
One last picture of the banner I hand painted this past week. It's for a fundraising event.
Have a lovely day,
