Here's the rundown, and then I'll share pictures of the updated space.
After moving our loveseat from our downstairs office up to our media room, it left our Townsend coffee table from PB without a home. I love this coffee table's lighter distressed finish and the fact that I can change out all the little cubbies under the glass with the seasons. So, we decided to move it to the family room. Well, that was all fine and dandy except now our darker sofa table wasn't working. No problem, it too got moved to an empty wall just screaming for a console table in our media room. Yes, our media room is getting ALL the love!! We then purchased a new console table for our family room. It is the Newberry console table from PB. The finish matched our "new" coffee table perfectly, and I love the drawer shelving combo. It is the only new furniture piece we purchased for the redo.
The only other major change we made was taking the center doors off our entertainment center. We never closed them anyhow. This enabled us to move our larger tv from upstairs downstairs, and the smaller one upstairs to the media room where it better fit. It also enabled us to remove the shelf above the tv that held our Tivo/etc and gave us a cleaner look. Hubby put those in the lower cabinet linked with wireless gadgets!
We then cleared ALL accessories out of the room, adding back a few we loved, sending the rest to consignment. We then had fun purchasing new items together. We went for lighter, brighter and things that have meaning. We also added some new throw pillows, ordered through Esty, to our existing pillows. We purchased new draperies and rods from West Elm to finish off the previously bare windows. I love these curtains!! So much so, we used the same ones in our dining room to keep the look consistent across the back of the house.
I was able to purchase all the new accessories using the money I earned by selling the old accessories through my favorite local consignment store!! We did purchase the new console table, but we needed one for the media room upstairs so either way, I was buying one. It just worked out that the old one worked beautifully in the media room.
I am still looking for an area rug for the space. I found one I loved at West Elm. However, it is backordered and I do believe they might be discontinuing it. I am currently loving all the painted Chevron rugs I am seeing around blog land!!
