Hi everyone! Well I finally finished painting my family room (otherwise know as the Toile Free Zone) and thought I’d show you what I have done so far.
It’s a room that we do so much in! We rarely go to movies but we love to watch movies at home. Friday has been official Family Movie Night for years! This room is also my husband’s office. It’s where my daughter and I work on creative stuff. It’s my sewing room and it’s where Maxie sleeps! So there’s a lot that has to happen in this room and everything has it’s own little area.
The Before. I did change the color from that yellow to khaki since I had to paint the whole room and not just the new paneling. I also decide to switch everything around and flipped the layout.
That same corner After. I love this red couch! This room is more “modern” than the rest of the house. My husband likes toile – he doesn’t love it like I do. He likes modern design. So since he lives here too~smile, I try to keep to that design style down here (it’s hard!!). BTW this is where you go when you come into the foyer and go downstairs.
The tv armoire is still on a dolly because I’m getting ready to paint it. I was going to do a fun color but decided that I have so much white and black paint leftover from other projects that I’m just going to use one of those.
The upholstered ottoman holds some extra throws and gaming equipment. I got it at Big Lots about two years ago.
I still have tons to do in this half of the room!
I have a few more movie posters to hang and some other movie themed things, I haven’t decided what to do about window treatments and of course I have to paint the armoire, and I need another little side table for the chair in the corner.
I also need to move on to our crafting area (sneak peek alert)!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you liked the peek into my Toile Free Zone! I know it's really different than the rest of my house!
Have a wonderful week!
