Thank you to Hayneedle for partnering with me on my family room makeover!

Y'all, the room shuffling in our house is ALMOST COMPLETE! In case you haven't heard, a few months ago we decided that we needed to separate our twin girls' into separate bedrooms because one of our sweet girls wakes up earlier in the morning than the other one and it was causing issues.Since my home office was in the spare bedroom, I had to relocate it to what was the girls' playroom. That meant we had to move their playroom to a section of our family room, which meant we had to rearrange things to accommodate the playroom content and that wasn't really possible with our old furniture layout. So, the room shuffling sparked a brand new family room design and full room makeover! We partnered with Hayneedle for our family room design and makeoverunique wedding gifts couple, and I'm so excited to show you how it turned out!

Now for fun, let's take a look back at what this room looked like 4 years ago when we bought this house. Prepare yourselves…;

And here's how it has looked the past 3 years or so, after we pretty much overhauled everything in the room, including that DIY concrete fireplaceand DIY light fixture you see!

For the new family room design, we started by repainting the walls with Falling Snow by Valspar. As much as we loved the dark blue color that you can see here, it was just too dark for our family room, which doesn't get much natural light. Then we reconfigured the seating area by placing 2 full-sized couches facing each other. We chose theBelham Living Milo Sofasand I am blown away by the quality for the price! It's a perfect conversation area when we have guests over, and when we are just lounging and watching TV, we lay back on the couches and it's perfect! (Before you ask, there's a source list at the bottom of this post, don't worry!)

I'm in love with thenuLOOM Kellum Vintage Indoor Rugthat we chose to really ground the seating area. It's the perfect vintage look without the vintage price tag!

And thePacific Coast Lighting Axis Table Lampsare so awesome! We love how the metal of the lamps plays so well off of our DIY sliding metal fireplace screen.

Mixing color and patterns was a huge part of our new family room design. I swapped out the art in our DIY frames that are hanging from pipe on the back wall with some new DIY prints I made and had printed at Office Depot. More on that soon! I also added some pops of turquoise with the sweetTurquoise Owland the gorgeousSurya Troy Smooth Stripe Throw. And I FINALLY added some plant life into this room, though I have a black thumb so that fiddle leaf fig tree you see is just a really amazing silk version (PS- how gorgeous is thatHyacinth BasketI put it in?! Obsessed with it!)

Now, let's take a look at the playroom area portion of our family room design. We made a DIY pipe table for the girls, which is where they spend a TON of time coloring and doing their homework most nights. The splatter art you see was painted by our twingirls last summer–;we LOVE those pieces and it makes them so proud to see them hanging up.

We also moved in their toystorage and DIY lego tableinto the family room (you can see how I stained them that dark color here). I painted the plastic bins with spray paint so that they blended in more with the color palette of the room, which worked out great.

In an ideal world, we could have kept the separate playroom, but we're pretty happy with how this arrangement has turned out. Here's a view of the “;playroom”; from the seating area.

And here's Avery photo bombing me while I was trying to shoot the space :)

We are absolutely loving our new space! For more details on the choices we made for our family room design and to see even more great options for a high-stylefamily friendlyroom design, click here to head over to see my idea board on Hayneedle!

Room Reveals pillow covers farmhouse

The kitchen is the hub of the home. No doubt you have heard this said a thousand times before by T.V. designers, home magazines and sales people- but not without good reason. The kitchen is the place where family memories are made. It is where you helped your children complete their first work of art, and where you later displayed it on the fridge door. It is where you sat down for coffee with your visiting sister when she announced her engagement. So it is really not surprising that a beautiful, well equipped kitchen is frequently cited as the room that sells a home. It has always been the natural meeting point for the family.

Measuring for curtains is a simple task, but only if you know how. Our step by step guide will show you how to get all the appropriate measurements correctly. We have also included tips, advice and things to consider when you measure for curtains. Measuring for curtains can be confusing if you've never done it before. However, all you need is a measuring tape and a calculator to figure out the right curtain length and width. Figure out some basic measurements as a starting point and then add or subtract depending on your specific needs. When you're done, you can custom order the right curtains for your windows. Leaving your windows naked and bare means you’re missing out on a big interior design opportunity. Beautiful window treatments provide privacy, filter sunlight, and add warmth while bringing style to your home. Before you can choose the perfect drapes for your space, it’s vital to get the correct window and curtain measurements.

This week I got to play around with the new Mod Melts by Mod Podge.? A couple of weeks ago, I received a box full of Mod Melts goodies and was asked to share my completed projects with you!
