I neglected to formally make any resolutions this year, but you can be sure that getting projects done on Hazard Ave is high on my list. That and keeping myself sane while doing it.
Speaking of projects, I've withheld pictures of our finished family room from you for far too long. So now without further ado here are the before and afters.
We splurged on a sofa from Lee Industries. The coffee table, aluminum accent table, and side chair were thrift store scores. The antique rug was an online find.
The artwork is gallery of photographs I took on trips to Jamaica, Block Island, and Cape Cod.
A year ago, we converted the fireplace to gas, so all we needed to do during the reno was paint it. We chose "Rock Bottom" by Sherwin Williams. The wallpaper is by Decorator Grasscloth.
The Hot House Flowers pillows were an Etsy purchase, and the chair was reupholstered in Betwixt. Both fabrics are from Celerie Kremble's line for Schumacher and can be purchased here.
How's that for starting 2012 with a bang?
(p.s. a special thank you to Casey who helped with the original design!)
