Family Room Reveal-Thrifty, Pretty & Functional

We bought this home 2 years ago & all along I had a vision for this room but..... with so much to get to & decorate I had to put this room on the back burner for a bit. So instead I re-used the furniture I had & made it work for the short term.

Slowly, I began adding in the pieces that I wanted & finally bought the sectional a few months ago. I don't think I am alone in saying that, sometimes we want so much for our home to look a certain way, the way we see in magazines but we forget that these
things take time. A room that is layered & filled with items and details that you LOVE evolves, over time. I had to tell myself this a few times:).

This family room makeover was done on a ridiculously SMALL budget.
I do believe that making your home pretty doesn't have to break the bank.

I shopped thrift stores, flea markets, outlet stores,I repainted, recovered, sewed, re-purposed, made and built things myself
to save some $.

    Hi! Your room is gorgeous. We are buying a sofa from Ikea right now, too, and we are wondering which of the white colors you chose? There are a couple different white- one is brighter than the other, in the pictures. Thanks for any info you can supply; we appreciate it! Brooke and jim

    I love your color scheme, so casual, comfy and cozy!!! Three design must haves for me. I am getting ready to redo my formal living room into something less formal and a little more relaxing.
    Your room is beautiful!!! You should be very proud of yourself!!!
    Thanks for the share
