We've recently redecorated the whole main floor of our home. Basically, we made 4 small spaces into 2 big ones. Our kitchen prep area, eating area and TV room became just the kitchen - prep space and eating space. The living/dining areas became the TV room. We now have 2 well used spaces instead of one large unused room being left as a super-size hallway that lead to the food and the TV.
I'm not ready to show you the finished rooms yet, but I will give you some sneak peeks here today.
We painted the whole main floor a lovely silvery grey. I ADORE it. It is the perfect colour to show-off all of the colourful things I have made and collected.
There was one large expanse of space that needed a large piece of art and I didn't want to pay too much for it.
I made this large sign using an old canvas art piece that had seen better days. I simply painted over the original art with a few coats of paint and I was off to the races!!
I then cut some large text out of white cardstock on my Cricut paper cutting machine.
I simply attached it with home made Mod Podge (white glue and water!)
Once the text was secure and dry, I added a bit of age to my sign using a dry-brushing technique that adds an antique-y look.
And here is the finished product:
I love how striking the white and red is.
It is very eye-catching and most people comment on it as soon as they enter our home.
Here is a little peek at one corner of our new family room.
We bought a new sofa and several new white slipcovers.
I really like how it is all coming together . . .
I'd like to find something to hang above my sign - perhaps an architectural salvage piece . . .
It just seems to be missing something up above.
What do you think?
Before I go, I'd love to share a few photos of the kids on a recent visit to a local fun farm.
We went shopping for pumpkins - and a yummy snack. We found both!
Happy Fall, Y'all!!
Thanks for the visit,
