family room

Before(while building)


Today I thought I would show you some pic's of my family room.Last year my hubby and I put an extension on the back of our cottage,which included a family room, bedroom, new laundry ,main bedroom with walk in robe and ensuite.
I still keep shuffling things around trying to acheive the look I am after.Originally I thought I would paint the sideboard, but now it has grown on me and I think it adds character to the room.The only thing I might do is strip it back to it's original timber.
The white cane chairs were a xmas pressie form hubby and were to go on our verandah...but I am loving them inside at the moment.Makes for a cosy conversation area.
The shutters are a greeny bluey colour and were given to me by a friend.They are just leaning against the walls at the moment.Still deciding if I should leave them there or not.

Well there you go ..a peep into our family room.Hope you enjoyed it.Have a great week!


  1. Hi Lucinda, gee you added on quite a few rooms! Love your family room, looks very relaxing and I like the idea of leaving the cane chairs in the there. The shutters are so 'in' at the moment, I would definately keep them. I had an opportunity to buy six a while ago but I didn't and now I'm kicking myself. Always the way. Oh well, thanks for sharing your family room! take care,Maryann
