Family Room Project!

The day we walked into our house for the first time, we fell in love! It was built in 1960 so it had a lot of character, but had been recently flipped and had a lot of fun upgrades. We knew when we bought the house one of our “someday” projects would be to put built-ins in the family room. Well, that “someday” has come!

We had the built-ins custom-built by a brilliant cabinet guy and he took our vision and made it a reality! With help from my designer :), we added a new rug, new pillows, and a new TV, and our room is completely changed. We are in love! There’s still work to do in the top shelves {as in there is almost nothing up there yet!!!} and I want a new look for the mantle, but I think it’s “done enough” to show pics!

Here are some before pics- Oh how that huge wall used to drive me crazy!!!

What do you think?! We are very happy! Watching the Superbowl, Grammys, and of course Downton Abbey have been so much fun in our new family room!
