Happy Tuesday, ladies! I have been promising to share an update on our family room makeover. It has been a slow process, but we have finally finished.
Now I need to add some decor, but that might take me a little bit of time, so I thought I would go ahead and share the before and after pictures.
Here is where we started, and of course I took these pictures after we had started moving our furniture to get ready for the makeover. That’s why my chair is on the steps.
We had a small fireplace under the steps. We’re not sure why the builders did that, but it didn’t look right to us. It also left us with a large wall with nothing on it.
We decided to add a stone fireplace to that wall.
Here is what it looks like now. We added bookshelves but only to one side because of the stairs on the right side. They painted the walls White Dove by Benjamin Moore, and the trim is painted a bright white.
The only place for our television was above the mantel. They placed it too high, so we are having it moved down this week. I’m not planning on decorating that mantel except with Christmas stockings at Christmas.
I’m so pleased with how it all turned out, and now I’m ready to add pictures and more home decor.
Here is a before and after side by side.
Here are items I have added to this room. The rug in my family room is from Wayfair, but it’s sold out, this one is similar. (Click the pictures for details.)
Lastly, this Target dress I shared a few weeks ago is finally online! It’s under $25, and I linked all the information below.

Let’s shine His light! It’s needed more than ever today.
