I hope you are having a great summer! It's going by way too fast. Hannah starts 8th grade in 4 weeks and Taylor has about 6 weeks before starting college!
I recently went on a mini vacay/road trip with my 2 sisters. That's the first time we've all gone away together (with no hubs or kids!). We drove to St. Louis, MO and then on to Fort Leonard Wood to attend my nephews Army graduation ceremony. We had a blast and stayed up way too late and ate way too much junk food! Good times!
Now we'll get to the real reason for this post.
My new chairs from Target!
I have wanted new chairs for the family room since, well, forever. I've been eyeing these for the past year and when they recently went on sale I decided it was time to order them. I ended up getting a really good deal on them too. They're regularly listed at $159.00 each but I paid just $111.99 each plus free shipping!
My family room is the one room in my house that I just can't seem to get "right". It's a long and narrow room with a sliding glass door on one wall. It's open to the kitchen and eating area as well. I've moved the furniture around in there so many times but it never looked right to me. However, I think I've finally found an arrangement that is the best for the size and shape of the room.
Working with the brown sofa isn't easy. It's staying so I tried to lightened everything up around it and make it fit in. In my dream room I would have a light gray or white sofa. Right now that's an unnecessary expense and isn't practical with kids and a dog. You know, the typical stuff.
The blue and vintage pillow covers and gray & blue throw are all from H&M.
The chairs are very comfortable and help add some much needed seating and color to the room.
This is looking into the family room from the eating area/kitchen. The sliding door that leads outside is on the left.
I'm really happy with the addition of the chairs and furniture placement. I would still love to add crown molding someday and the hunter green ceiling fan needs updated. I always crop it out of the photo's because it's so dated and ugly.
Tell me what you think of the furniture placement. Would you do something different? Do you have a room that's hard to decorate too? I'd love your feedback!
Have an awesome weekend and thanks for visiting!
