Family room is complete

Not a lot of words. Just a few pics of the final results of the my family room remake. The first pictures are of the bedroom it used to be. I had so much fun cleaning and re-decorating it. I love to sit in here and read or watch chick flicks in the quiet.

First, as a bedroom:

This room is right off the kitchen with a large closet on the left that will store our winter coats and outer apparel of our guests.

I think it’s a wonderful place to relax, watch movies, read a book, or just chill!!

  1. Hey, you can now come and decorate my house. Great job.

    Hope you had a great Easter.

    See you soon.

    I guess you can now add “interior decorator” to your CV.
    Certainly a well done job – but the curtains (??) Are they
    wishful fantasies of the “belles of the Parisian Moulin Rouge Can Can
    dancers”. Surely you didn’t have dreams of that career path or has my imagination gone off the planet. Never saw the “Can Can” routine in Paris, but boy oh boy, the Monte Carlo belles were bloody fantastic!
    I don’t think my heart could stand the excitement these days – ha ha!

    And pray tell what are these “chick flicks”??? I presume videos on the raising of Rhode Island Red chickens??????

    Great Easter weekend and holiday weather here in Australia – the beaches would have been packed. Unfortunately the “lunatic fringe of drivers” are causing mayhem but the police in all States are out in force – a clampdown blitz. Should make them think – BUT???
    One would think that the now very high fines, the loss of licence and the possible impounding of one’s vehicle would have some incentive for sensible driving – but unfortunately NO.

    Hope the weather was kind to you for Easter?

    Now it can start to rain here on Tuesday – plenty of follow up rain is needed before winter starts – June 1st.
    Cheers

      Just to make sure you know what photos got the “Moulin Rouge” blood vessels flowing – the “Makeover Pictures”
      Nos: 2, 5, 11 and 12 – the curtains.

      • It’s so strange for me to think you are going into winter when I’m coming out!! It’s cold and windy but may be better for Easter Sunday!!

        Chick Flicks are movies that usually guys steer away from, women cry or cuss while watching them and are usually love stories!!!

        The curtains are call “priscillas” are considered very country feminine and used a lot in antique themed homes. I love them and usally make my own. I love to sew. I also love to decorate and would love a profession where I could put that talent to good use!! Of course all of the decorating would be country themed. I don’t like cold, modern decor at all. I like a decor that mades feel welcome and comfy!

        • Rita as you know I rarely get on the internet to check mail…this time I spent a little time looking at the pictures you posted on your page. I see you and Eddie have really worked hard on the farm and made alot of improvements on your home. Looks great what both of you have done!
          I wish you and Eddie & family a great Easter Weekend.

          • I’m thrilled you checked out the photos and the blog. I have fun writing about our trials as farmers and me as a homemaker.

            I wish lots of blessings for you and the family this Easter day and season. Take care of yourselves and come see us when you can! Love, Rita
