I have been working on my family room for years. It keeps getting pushed to the back burner. Ever have one of those rooms?
When we first moved in, we removed carpet. Then lived with plywood subfloors for a few years before finally installing bamboo flooring.
I painted the French doors a beautiful Benjamin Moore Pacific Ocean blue with glazing when I created a door pediment from an old headboard…
And the old hunter green striped LaZBoy sofa was great quality but I was thrilled when it got slipcovered…
And then I saved my money to order the Waverly Santa Maria Desert Flower fabric I had to have to make curtains. That fabric sat untouched for a year. I finally got the curtains sewn but not hemmed although you couldn’t tell in photos.
It’s a room that I tend to decorate here and there, one we rarely use so it gets cluttered up, but it’s never really been finished.
Until now. With the help of Overstock.com, this room is getting “polished”… i.e. “completed”. I also want it to function more as a studio/work space too since it has great lighting. It’s finally happening!
If you’ve ever shopped at Overstock, you know there’s a great selection of all things home related at great prices. And I love shopping the WorldStock section for beautiful handmade home decor and furniture. 60-70% of the purchase price goes back to the artisan and suppliers!
