Happy Friday, everyone! We made it through another week, and checked a few more things off of our home improvement project “to-do” list. My husband and I will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year so we have been working hard to get our house ready for guests. We recently finished a “makeover” on our dining room, then decorated it for Fall, and last weekend I moved onto the family room, adding some Fall touches in there, as well.
We recently replaced our too-small area rug with a larger jute rug that brings a “natural” feel to the space. I then swapped out the summery pillow covers for plaid, burlap, and fur covered ones, bringing in the cozy feel I was after.
I accessorized using inexpesive natural elements, like wheat, pumpkins, feathers, antlers, seed pods, leaves and branches cut from the fruit tree in our yard.
I don’t think I’ve showed this side of the room on the blog yet. Hubby and I were having a difficult time finding an entertainment center big enough to fill up this wall, so we did a rustic makeover on a large console table we found, then retro-fitted the drawers to hold the DVD player, Playstation, and other electronics. I’ll be sharing the DIY for this piece in the next couple of weeks.
I’m still in the process of collecting the artwork I hope to use in a gallery wall above the entertainment center. Hopefully it will help keep the gi-normous television from standing out so much.
I showed you one side of our entryways a few weeks ago, now here’s the other side of the entryway. It connects to the family room and also received the “Fall” treatment. Some pumpkins, Indian corn, and branches were all that was needed.
There are a few more things that need to be done (curtains for the french doors and windows, artwork, etc), but it’s getting there. The space feels cozy and inviting, and I’m so looking forward to entertaining family and friends here this holiday season! What are your holiday plans this year? Will you be hosting Thanksgiving dinner, or heading out to celebrate with friends and family? I’d love to hear about your plans in the comments, or you can connect with me via email, Facebook or Instagram.
