Redecorating the Family Room

We’ve spruced things up in our family room and I thought I’d share what it looks like now:Probably the biggest change is we took our the old bookshelves and dog crates and added a nice green wingback chair given to us from my Aunt Jenny (thanks again, Aunt Jenny!).  Then we moved around the furniture so...

Painting the Family Room- Part 3

Hi everyone!  Here is the “after” for the paint in the family room.  Remember we chose between these colors?   And the final verdict was C2’s “Shine.”  Then our family came and painted most of the room for us!  (Thank you again for that!!)

Painting a Bookshelf with CeCe Caldwell

Today I thought I’d share my fun project with y’all.  I’ve been so focused on the kitchen since we moved in that I haven’t even gotten to unpack a lot of moving boxes.  (Obviously the kitchen things are still in boxes, but I wanted to unpack some non-kitchen things… like my books!)
