Come See My New Family Room Redo!!!

Ta Da!! After posting on my work blog about wanting to re do the mantle and bookcases in my family room one of my real life friends and a great interior designer http://studiomdesigns.blogspot.com/2009/02/who-says-window-seat-has-to-be-white.html#comments Misti ( you've got to check out this post ) had some great suggestions. Some I have done, some are in progress. Then the nester over at the Nesting Place did a 10 minutes to a room you'll love post and I had to re do!! All of this furniture was reversed before the re do. The couch was against the wall of windows. I flipped everything and added some decor touches.

The Before mantle. It was bare and crying for help.

The After mantle. I still need to paint the back of the bookcases the same color as the dining room turned home office. I know I know, but the man has to work somewhere. Misti also had some great ideas for what I should do instead of the picture of the lady but I have to wait on that one. I shopped the house for what I had. Too much red maybe? Needs tweaking but it's better than what I had and it was FREE!!

A view from the doorway of our living room/kids gone wild area by the kitchen.

This is what you see when you walk into the door. I love it, it looks peaceful to me. Hate the column. Dang thing has been in the way from day one.

A view from the dining room turned home office. The candle is lonely over there on the table by the french doors. I put a picture frame there but Braxton already broke it. Sigh.

Yep, my work here is done for the moment 'til the cash flow improves and I can do a little more. Me likey.
I feel dumb posting this since all of the chaos with my mom but I needed a distraction so here I am instead of doing my secretary work. I'll have to double time it now!!
Thank you so much for your prayers.
