Family Room Reveal

Hello Everyone!

I've been meaning to post about our updated family room for a very long time and I'm
 finally doing it - yeah!!

I had been ready to replace our brown leather furniture for a while and when a new
Ikea opened very close to us last summer, I jumped at the chance to take a good look at their
slipcovered furniture.
Originally the plan was to buy another sofa and loveseat like we had but when I 
saw the Ektorp sectional on the showroom floor at Ikea, I was sold.  
It just seemed so cozy and I could really envision it in our family room.

As you can see, we purchased the sectional with the white slipcover.
You just can't beat the prices at Ikea and the quality is definitely good enough for us.
I'm at a point where I don't want to buy expensive furniture that I feel like I
have to keep forever.  
We even had the sofa delivered and they took away the old sofa and loveseat
 for a very small fee.

We purchased this dresser from Wayfair to use as a TV console
and also for more storage.
It seems we can never have enough space for all those electronics,
chargers, games, etc., right?
I replaced the knobs with some white porcelain ones to tie in with
the other white pieces in the room.

This console table is also from Wayfair a while back and of course
I have fun changing around the accessories quite often.

We also purchased the Ektorp chair and ottoman and I chose the Lofallet beige
slipcover for those pieces.
It's a really nice color and I like the little bit of contrast between the chair
and the sofa.

The mantel is decked out for summer using an old window I found
at an antique shop while on vacation this year.

I actually found this coffee table on Etsy.  
It was already painted just like this and it's the perfect size .
The two leaves can be lifted up as well to make it larger and for things like
putting together a puzzle.

Kind of a funny story about this coffee table.
It was shipped to us via Greyhound bus all the way from California (we live in Ohio).
I had no idea there was such a thing as shipping via Greyhound but there is
 and it's very economical.
Including shipping, I paid right around $200 for this cute table.
I did have to drive downtown to the Greyhound station to pick it up but
my son went with me and it was super easy.  

This little table was found on Craigslist several years ago.

I'm really loving the blue and white color scheme in the room and it's so much more
my personal style now. 
 I've had a lot of fun with different pillows, throws and accessories.
We would still like to replace the old windows in here and then
I might add some sort of window treatment but other than that,
I'm very happy with the room.

My family loves hanging out in here. 
It's light and bright and very comfortable.
The slipcovers wash up so easily too - they might not come
out completely pristine but they're pretty close and I'm ok with that.

I'm so happy you came by today and I hope you like the new look
of our family room.

Pretty Centerpieces for Spring

To celebrate the first official day of Spring, I found some pretty and easy table centerpieces to inspire us. This first one is what I currently have on my table. I'm sure I will be changing it out many times especially when the flowers in my yard start blooming. Here are a couple more from previous years. As you can see, I usually stick with something pretty easy - a pitcher or flower pot with flowers and a few other accessories to make it a little more interesting. There are so many possibilities. Using jars or bottles for flowers can be so pretty and I love how the Spring sunshine reflects through them. source source source I also love nature inspired centerpieces. You can get really creative with some spring blooms,  moss and terra cotta pots. source source source I have never made a centerpiece using veggies but I have seen  some like these below that look amazing. The colors are so fresh and vibrant. source source source If you like a more rustic look, the c

Blue Kitchen Cabinets 2017

I have done a couple posts on kitchens with blue cabinetry in the past, after all it is my favorite color. It has been awhile though, so today I have rounded up some more  amazing kitchens with cottage style that also incorporate blue in  the design. source The kitchen above and the one below have white upper cabinets and soft shades of blue on the lower ones. This is a nice way to use blue without going overboard or ending up with something that you would get tired of quickly. source source Finding the right shade of blue would be key and using a lot of white and wood tones along with it creates a beautiful and timeless look. source source Isn't the kitchen above just so very unique?
