Family Room Update

I thought that I would give you a little update on the new house. I decided to paint all of the ceilings and walls in the Family Room Benjamin Moore's Antique White. I am SO happy that I could talk my hubby into painting the walls because it really feels like a new room. I'm a little worried that the paint I decided to go with has a little too much pink, but I think that once I have everything in place it will be fine. I almost went with Linen White but was worried it just didn't have enough color for such a huge space.

You are probably wondering when we started since it looks nowhere near finished. Well we started November 2nd and the room is a little more complete than this, but not much. We have had some major painting issues, plus the painter has been prepping the rest of the house. Our painter is a very kind person but has a hard time showing up for work. We are now hiring a new painter to either "help" him or take over the job.

Back to the room.....I have ordered a tight Berber that is called basket weave. It looks like a sisal and I really do love it. My sweet hubby was insistent on carpet in this one room so I happily ;) gave in. I really could see a beautiful slate or brick floor in here. I am going to paint the bar cabinets either a dark blue or antique white. I also want to cover the spiral stairs in an animal print carpet. I'm starting to think about slipcovers, new furniture, and a mounted elk or deer head over the fireplace mantle, which is going to be a piece of driftwood from the Mississippi River since it is so close to us. Enjoy the pictures and I'll be back with the progress we have made in the kitchen soon.

This is going to be one amazing family room! I so look forward to seeing how you finish it off. I'm thinking of a room that I've seen before that has this same roofline. I'll do some digging and see if I can come up with it and send it your way. (Thanks so much for your prayers for little EKW too!)
