This family room is transformed into an inviting space that this family can relax in and entertain friends. The walls are painted a warm tan color. A set of four matching light fixtures replace the outdated lamps and sconces.
Before, this space was uninviting and seriously outdated. Now a few minor adjustments and additions completely transform the space into a cozy and relaxing family room.
Matchstick blinds and fabric valances give the windows a much-needed update and the sofas are updated with stone-colored slipcovers. The homeowners' existing side tables are repurposed into fabric-covered ottomans.
A large piece of thin plywood is framed out and painted with magnet paint and the wall color. Framed photos minus the glass add a decorative touch.
