Our Family Room Lately

Just before I show you our family room decorated for Fall later this week I thought I'd share how it has been looking for the last few months.. I was meaning to share this earlier ;(.. It's just been quite a hectic summer... So this year I decided to switch up the colour scheme in our family room just a little bit.. Though I LOVED last years Navy Summer theme.. This year I went with touches of soft aquas with the neutrals you all know I love so much.. See all the details below..

Entry Hall Updates

So we brought the Antique dresser from our hall up to Master bedroom to use as one of our end tables. Bye bye to my childhood end tables :) More on that soon! So for now we are using this sofa table that I got from Target about 10 years ago as our hall table...granted it has gone through a little makeover since then.. Now it's a tad lower than what I am used to, but with the height of the tall mirror and lamp I feel like it all works... I'm using stacked woven storage baskets and demi john underneath as decor.. The baskets actually create storage for all our winter accessories.. Boo winter :(  See all our recent changes below..

Planking our Farmhouse Table Top

 More changes to our kitchen.. I've been craving a planked harvest table so I just simply added pine planks to the top of our original oak kitchen table and then stained them the best I could to match our weathered kitchen island pendant lights and RH chair legs... I will post more on the stain tomorrow.. Check out how it all turned out here!

Medicine Cabinet Makeover

Today I am sharing a small project I have been up to.. I found this medicine cabinet a while back at a ReStore shop by my house for under $10. At the time I 'loved' how it was lavender in colour...It's actually what attracted me to it and made me buy it! I originally got it for my daughters playroom. Now having a son... I am in the midst of trying to make the playroom a little"less feminine".. It's currently bubble gum pink in colour with a baby pink kitchen.. ahh my poor lil' guy lol! Anyways I added some vintage more masculine wall art and decided to move the medicine cabinet up to our master ensuite so I could have even more storage.. Yes I need more storage!! Read below for more details on our easy medicine cabinet makeover.
