we also spent some time in the family room. the bookshelf sold. (yay!) so i pushed my two chairs and new table over to the back wall. we bought a new console for the tv from world market and i've been making everything come together. i am in love with my gallery wall. it's going to have some great oil paintings (that are in the mail) added to it for splashes of color.
here is the tv/blue wall:
|the book stacks will eventually get taller when i get a couple of those invisible shelves from umbra|
|we have so much more space now|
|hubby added some life to the console|
|a great catch-all for the remotes|
|world market baskets on sale for 17 each|
the only thing that is missing on the wall are these amazing two skylines that rachel is sketching for us. they will go over the tv in two white frames with white mats. cannot WAIT for them to be finished.
and now on to the gallery wall:
|this frame is getting an orange paint and a blue oil painting of a lake|
|not sure on the color yet, but probably kelly green....i'm planning to put little guy's artwork up here|
|my w from san fran's anthro|
so, i still have a few more frames to hang....it's going to go a bit higher...including a surprise for my hubby that should be here any day now.
we are loving our new space. and, i'm working on the mantel again. i painted it white to see what i thought. it's a no. now just to figure out what color to go instead.
oh, and i forgot to mention that the chair got reupholstered. i love it. the back is different, because the stripes run horizontally. i'll have to get a picture sometime.
