Home Sweet Home Tour: Family Room

A part of us thought this quarantine would mean that we would have a lot more free time to blog consistently, but oh how we were mistaken.  First of all, I feel like I'm third in line to get my laptop after the kids are done with all of their online school work.   Secondly, I've just had a hard time getting motivated.  BUT, today I have a new post in the Home Sweet Home Tour series!  

Up first though, if you missed any of the other posts in this series they are all linked below! 

Today I'm sharing our Family Room! We spend a lot of time in this room. It's where we watch TV each night, where we put our Christmas tree and open gifts Christmas morning. 

 It's the room where I sit late at night when everyone has gone to bed and I just need a few moments of quiet to myself. 

It's a very lived in room. My daughter stretches on the floor in here and practices tumbling drills on the sectional. My son uses the sectional, pillows and chairs as a ninja course and we have even been known to do some baseball drills in here on a rainy day! Dodge ball and nerf gun wars occur, our dog used to run laps around this room when he was a puppy and just about everything else you can imagine. 

We knew we wanted a giant, comfortable sectional for this room. It might not be the prettiest or most on-trend piece of furniture, but it is comfortable and our entire family can snuggle up on it and watch a movie.  I just try to dress it up with the pretty pillows! Funny story, that square coffee table is one that we bought in college at a garage sale and refinished.  Not even lying!  We originally put it in this space until we could find something else, but it fits in the square part of the sectional so well that we ended up just leaving it.

I needed something to fill the space on the wall above the sectional and a friend suggested doing maps. I loved the idea and ended up ordering them from the USGS website.  They were all between $10-$20 and I was able to pick places that are meaningful to our family.  The frames are from Hobby Lobby so overall this was a very easy and affordable project!

This little sitting area has chairs from Pier 1 and I was so exited when I found this lamp and shade with the the coordinating nail head trim!  I always love using some sort of greenery and books to help spaces feel welcoming. 

I wanted to share all of the links and sources that I could from this room! If you have other questions, just let me know. :-)
