I thought I wanted a caramel brown color but they are hard to find on Craigslist for the price I wanted to pay. I have been looking for 2 months now and almost settled a few times for something that wasn't the best for us. I held out and found this chocolate brown one for $150! She originally wanted $200 and it is in excellent condition. I think I am happier with the chocolate brown than I would have been with the caramel.
Ignore the poor kitchen/breakfast room in the background! It looks terrible but I just can't start on it until I get this family room done!! I need to figure out some pillows. Here is another shot so everyone can give me some suggestions as I'm not good at accessorizing with pillows. Do I get 2 or 3 or 4 or 5..., should 2 be the same color or what combination, should they be solid, a print or a combination....HELP!!
Now, I'm not sure if the area rug goes anymore. It matched with the other furniture better. Trying to hide the greeen carpet as best I can. Not much you can do with it! Definitely need something bigger on the hearth than those 3 pitiful candlesticks!!
The room is coming along slowly. Mr. Creative would like a recliner so I found a deep red recliner for $20 today but it is probably gone already. I am going to make a square upholstered ottoman, too.
Decisions...decisions...this is the hardest part for me! The finishing touches!
Thanks for stopping by today! Your ideas keep me going! Have a great day!
