Quick Update On My Family Room Re-do!


For those of you who have asked I thought I would give you a quick update on my family room re-do.

  • Sofa and ottoman are still at the upholsters
  • We have the two Ikea chairs in their place
  • The white Ikea Chairs are now sporting their pretty Schumacher Chenonceau green pillows.
The antique over mantel mirror has just received a haircut….

I have my handsome handyman who just happens to live on the premises, fixing it all up for me.

Lots of discussion took place, moving things a 1/16 of an in, a 1/4in. Yes, I am that girl!! It makes a difference, trust me on this!!!

To be continued…………..

btw: Come back tomorrow I have a surprise for YOU, my dear readers!!

It looks good, Kathysue. I like it with the haircut. I haven't been visiting as much since my brother passed away but wanted to pop in and say Hi-xo Diana

Tell that handsome handyman he can come to my house! I need HELP! I love the "haircut" on your mantel and can't wait to see the new family room all put together. Do you think God minds that I'm so jealous of your incredible talent? Jeanie

I support you, because I am that girl, too. You are lucky to have good help living at home. Although, can you fire him if you need to? :)

Love the white and green, your trademark! Mantel looks great.

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Your "on premises handyman" is very similar to mine. We are lucky Gals!
I understand, completely, your "inch" detail discussion. We are nuts, aren't we?
