Sharing some detail shots of my family room remodel. You can click HERE to see the before and after shots.
Here is a photo of the finished family room (well, as much as anything is ever finished). I am standing in the kitchen; you can see that the room is pretty small, hemmed in by walls with one small window. It's the reason I kept everything light and bright.
A closer look at the fauxdenza. 100% inspired by Morgan and her blog Brick House. Pretty much love everything she does. We used standard IKEA cabinets mounted directly to the wall...
Probably the biggest challenge was getting the wide board for the top and sides (it wraps around). Found one at our local Woodworker's Source - a really pretty "faux" mahogany. Definitely couldn't afford the real thing, but I love it. A lot.
I picked up the pillows over several months, too. One from IKEA, two from Target. But, I wanted some kilim type pillows to add to the stack. What do you know? I was out garage sale-ing with Lauri and found TWO for three bucks each. Major score. I had bookmarked several from Etsy for $30-40 each. Yikes.
Ah yes, the matching chair and my mirrored side table. Another fun story - I had been eyeballing this table at West Elm for several months. Yes, I even have it pinned on my For the Home pinterest board. I was cruising Craigslist one day (probably looking for my sofa) when I see a listing "West Elm Mirror Table". I immediately get flushed and excited. But, then I think "it can't possibly be the same table". I click...and it WAS! I mean, this table is in the current catalog for $199. I got it for $75. Seriously. I have no idea why this gal was selling it...her loss, my gain. Giddy!
Okay, Allison was wondering where I put my computer and desk, etc. I will pop in tomorrow and give you the scoop on that, k?
Hope you enjoyed the beauty shots.
