Today the sun is shining after days of gloomy weather...I hope it stays like this for awhile. Valentine's Day has come and gone. I hope it was a special day for all of you. The Husband brought home a sweet card, a chocolate rose and a gift card to Starbuck's. He knows me so well and he knows I love gifts! I didn't bake anything special as I usually try to do, but yesterday I was in the mood for something sweet and made a batch of shortbread cookies. I have to give you a close up shot because I ate quite a few!
Other than one small wall, I am pretty sure the family room is completed. These are the little chests I showed you in my last post. They were a lime green and now they are a pale dove gray. I have a lot of extra pillows stored in them.
I found this lamp at Homegoods and have it on an old chippy table I had. This is next to the corner chair and is a perfect place to curl up and read. To the right you can see the curtains that I found at JC Penney's. They are simple white linen panels and super inexpensive.
I found these gates at Homegoods also. I wanted a pop of dark colors to go with the coffee table and I love how weathered these are.
I found this tray at a website that is new to me, Antique Farmhouse. It's called a bulb tray. I haven't figured out what to put in it yet, God knows I have enough dried hydrangeas to go around.
And here they are, on the sofa table! This pitcher is very much like the one on the coffee table, just smaller. And I have some of my favorite birds scattered around.
FINALLY...these are the plates that I want to hang. I have one more wall with nothing on it. I have an old window at the lakehouse that I want to hang with the plates around it. I found these at Anthropologie. I was actually thinking of doing a tablescape with them before I hung them! Maybe I will.
So, this is the final reveal of the family room. I will show you that last wall when I get it done. Thanks for all the tips on hanging the plates, I have to pick up some of those wires the next time I go to Michael's. And thanks for being so patient looking at these pictures and leaving such nice comments. I can honestly say that every room here is done!! Now, as for the lakehouse...
I am joining the party a French Country Cottage. See you there! :)
