The final and finished family room reveal

 We have finally moved back into the family room and we are loving it. I took a vote and everyone agrees the ceiling is the best part of the room followed by the floors.
I found a nice sisal 8x10 rug at Home Depot for $150 which was amazing, its synthetic because I have a family and pets and real sisal would not stand up to them.
 I moved the grey ektorp arm chair into the family room and we decided to leave the settee out of the room to keep it more open, we did lose seating for one but hopefully we will get that new longer sofa and we will gain back that lost seating. The room this way feels so much better now and all dressed for Christmas its lovely. You may notice I also changed out the lamps, I decided to try the dining room lamps and I love them with the burlap shades.
 Here is a good look at the floors I am so happy to have wood throughout this space now.
 I am so looking forward to my new coffee table, my hubby ordered it for me after returning that chair I mentioned earlier. Turns out another husband wanted it for his wife in time for Christmas and if we hadn't wanted it then he wouldn't have had it for her in time, so I think it was meant to be really.




So there it is as it is now, I will do a new post after Christmas with my new coffee table.
Merry Christmas...
here's a couple of before's for fun

Chris, this is incredible! I've enjoyed following this transformation so much, and I'm definitely going to try recreating that ceiling in my own home ... with a significantly more generous time line. Well done.

This looks amazing!!!! I too like the lamps with the burlap. It helps tie in your bamboo blinds. I just love everything you have done with your new home!! :)

its hard to vote for one thing because everything together is wonderful - but the ceiling, love. the floors!!! the curtains add sooo much too. and laughing at the sisal = real SEAGRASS is impervious to pets and kids etc. Seagrass, not sisal. sisal is a biotch - it stains. all in all - the change is absolutely incredible. just beautiful and warm and cozy!

it looks fabulous, I marvel at the work you do! The ceilings are my favourite! I love your Christmas decor too....how on earth did you fill the mantel with Christmas balls, are they all glued together so they don't roll off? Very cute!!

I have a question - where did you get your christmas tree? I assume it is an artificial one. I am looking for a slender tree and yours looks exactly like the one I am looking for. Is it a "pencil" tree or "slender". Do you know the diameter of the bottom? Sorry for all the questions but I just love your tree.
