Fall 2019 One Room Challenge/Guest Participant Week 2

A few days late, but I'm still here working away on my family room as a guest participant in the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda at Calling it Home.

My husband was in a car accident, after dropping my son off at school.  Thankfully he and the other driver are just fine.  Life happens, so blogging took a backseat.

As I mentioned before, I'm giving our family room a much needed makeover.  It's a nice size space that I plan to make cozy.  I also want to create a work area, so my son has place to do homework and eat a snack, while I work from the laptop.

I purchased two pine tables from IKEA, that I plan to paint black.  I wanted a work space where we could spread things out. I love the minimal look of the table and IKEA's low prices.

 We have a leather sectional already in the room.  It's a great lounge spot. It cleans easily and I don't have to worry about messy kids or dogs.

To make it extra cozy, I plan to layer in pillows and throws. The linen Euro shams I ordered arrived in the mail and I can't wait to arrange them on the sofa(after having them dry cleaned).

Our old rug was water damaged.  I replaced it with another natural fiber rug.  I'm inspired by the look of layering a statement rug atop a jute, so I may go that route if I can work it in the budget.

I'm excited to share more updates with you as I find the right accessories to bring this room to life!  

As always, thank you for stopping by. Be sure to visit the ORC guest participant linkup and discover all the other projects and meet new people.
