The family room/great room gets an uplift...

A new year and a new look. Since we moved in a year ago, this was the only room that did not get painted.

So here are some before pictures and after pictures.

We used Benjamin Moore Cloud White on the ceiling and Pale Almond on the wall behind the TV and the upper wall above the shelf. Below the shelf we used Brazil Nut. We carried that colour around the room to the bar wall. Oh how it opens up this already large room. The room is 25x25.

So we went out today to find a MAMA Chair to match PAPA chair. No luck! There is always tomorrow. I am also replacing a small window covering with faux blinds to match the other larger window that faces to the front of the house.

When we were out today we purchased two new smoke alarms. Ours are wired into the house and at 3:00 am the one went off and on. There was no smoke, just a worn out smoke alarm. Our Lab Max just about jumped into bed with us. So they are now installed, so no more excitement in the middle of the night.

Now I can get back to sewing and finishing this cute baby quilt.

until next time



  1. The room looks great. Those are the colors that I have most of the walls in my house too. Very easy to live with.

    Smoke alarms in the middle of the night are never a good thing!!!!

  2. PRETTY! That is what I need to do to mt family room it is in need of a new looook!

  3. Your family room looks so nice Linda! Enjoy it :)

  4. Looks like a lot nicer with the paint, love their paints.
    Out basement room is similar, all finished on the walls, so putting in fake wood floors a bit at a time, then we can paint and make it into a real room.


  5. Looks very bright and airy!! Yes Mama needs a chair too..;-)

  6. The room looks wonderful! I love the colors!

  7. This looks a lot bigger than the old room. Great new room, Linda. The room is missing your quilts, but I do see a rug that looks like a quilt.

  8. Looks great. Love the corner with the stove.
