Family room




I finally got my family room back! For the year that Brek and Brittany lived here, we had Cole sleeping in the family room. His bed was up against the wall where the TV is. As you can imagine, it was always a disaster down there. The room was very squishy with how we had to have the furniture re-arranged. Now that his bed is in a bedroom we got to move things around to be more spacious...even with a tree in the room. If you look at the red walls in the last picture you can see that the nook wall is still the old red color. I do have enough paint in the can from the spill to finish painting back there. By the way...the spill was under the little americana desk. I also need to paint the white wall behind the TV, but that one will be cookie crumb color. I already have it from doing to living room. That may not get done till January. I'm only one woman you know! The fireplace was a plain icky navajo white color and I faux painted back when I painted Brek's old room. I really wanted to put up stone on it, but couldn't afford it, so paint and glaze did the trick to freshen it up. Anyways...this room is as decorated as it's going to get except for the garland on the railing and I'll get it up tomorrow.
There's lots of stuff going on right now and I will tell you about it...just not tonight. My head is feeling much better and I figured out why my head hurt so bad when I woke up this morning with cramps! CRUD! I hate cramps! I'm done having babies for Pete's sake....lets just shut the plumbing off already!
Thanks for visiting my blog...whether you're a reader or someone who leaves me comments. I appreciate your friendship and kindness.

Hi Jolene! Guess what I got in the mail yesterday? Yep - a fabulous Christmas card from YOU! I love it, it's such a great card! What a tremendous amount of work that went into it!
Love the virtual tour of your family room - those red walls are gorgeous! We have the Americana theme in our master bedroom (works well there because hubby didn't want anything "foo-foo" where he sleeps!LOL!).
Thanks for your friendship!

Your family room is so pretty and dressed up for the holidays! LOVE the red walls!

Oh gee...my *plumbing is almost over* and I can not say I will miss it! *laugh* I really chuckled at your post!

OH! About the comments not posting. I was having the same problem. I went into my blog, signed in and then went to all my new blog friend's sites. That is when it finally allowed ne to post. Dunno why. Don't know if that is what has happened to everyone else.

Stay well (I will never know how you get so much done! You ARE Superwomen!!) and have a great Wednesday!

Fondly,
Sue
