The new look in the family room




This is how things looked early this morning... complete with the magazine rack out of place and my husband's breakfast plate still on the lamp table. Oh well.. that's life, right? Notice my new wood floors and my new rug? We still have to finish the flooring around the fireplace. I would like to say it will be marble, but we have yet to get the estimate. Will work on that today. I would never have put that white chair in this room but when the flooring men put things back, this chair somehow ended up there... and ya know... I sorta like it. It's very old and would need to be recovered, but I am considering it. It came from my grandmother's (remember reading about Jean?) home in Dickinson, Texas. She was so determined that I would inherit this chair that she wrote my name on the back in Magic Marker. Oh well....
Onward...

My "autographed" chair!
Not sure I want to cover this up...

Even if I did recover that chair I would leave that fabric in place & upholster over it & even write a note & attached it to the bottom with the story. That's is wonderful.

Love the room ...

TY for sharing. Have a great week. TTFN ~Marydon

Karen, your floors are beautiful! What a brilliant idea Jean had to write your name on that chair, makes it even more valuable!
