Family-room Makeover Completion

When we were in the search for our first house in 2012 a front formal room wasn't one of the things that was on the top of our need/want list but somehow we ended up with one and it ended up being the second room we focused on finishing. Who would have thought a room I never thought I'd need ended up being a room that we use a lot for the holiday season. 

I know I've talked about this room before on the blog but it has now finally be completed we got the last missing piece this last weekend and I couldn't be happier with how the room has turned out. 
{The room before we moved in & made it our own, it was like this for half of 2012}
{The missing piece... our new chair}

This chair had been on my mind since the moment I saw it a year ago and Greg was never really that impressed with it until it went on sale we got the very last one it was 50% off with an additional 20% I honestly thought I'd never get it but it paid to wait! :) 

I love how it turned out it feels so complete now that the chair is in there. Getting and redesigning the rooms in a four bedroom 2 bath home isn't easy or cheap! I've learned to be a bit more patient when it comes to redoing our rooms in this house. The next room to complete will be our master-bedroom and we will be having a huge construction zone going on in there soon, there will be more about that on the blog later!

  7. I adore this room!! But I know what you mean about having to be patient. We moved into a house with 4 bedrooms and a family room + a living room.... and needless to say that it has taken me 2 years to finally be *almost* done with our family room. lol. It's a slow process. But, it feels so good to have your living spaces exactly what you envision for them!

  8. It looks amazing! I love the bold color on the wall and all the light accents and that chair was so worth the wait!

  9. Did you have to get the sofa frame AND the cover or did you keep the white frame with no cover??
