It’s Family Room Reveal Day!!!! I am so excited to show you guys how our family room turned out. Since we moved in to our house, I have had visions of how it would turn out and this by far exceeded my dreams!
(Scroll to the bottom to shop some of my pieces)
We started with painting over the knotty pine which was a HUGE debate in our house. From the minute I looked at the house, I couldn’t wait to paint it. Rick on the other hand, wanted to keep it as is since he thought it was perfect for a “man cave”. We compromised (isn’t that what marriage is all about?) and did a single layer of paint and then sanded it with a palm sander to give it more of a distressed look and let the natural pine pop through. It totally brightened up the room!
We had new carpet installed and I layered our original living room rug on top to give it some more texture and a pattern.
My favorite part of the whole project is the faux beam Rick put up to mount our industrial lights. It really gives the room that Adirondack cabin feel.
I chose to decorate our mantle with a simple green wreath, some blue jars and faux greenery to pop off of the whitewash brick. (The whitewash brick fireplace was one of the very first DIYs we did in our home. You can see the transformation here.)
I am so happy how the whole room turned out. This is our new cozy hangout and it’s Lola’s new favorite spot too, curled up next to the warm fire.

Thanks so much Natalie! The whitewash brick fireplace was one of the first DIYs we did in this house! I love it.
