Sneak Peek Of My Family Room

A Primitive Place ~Tammy


Happy Sunday Everyone.

I have spent the last few days working hard in my family room.

Yes, I have a family room. :)

It is in the basement, if you have followed my blog for awhile, you know, I have never been too enthused about decorating it.

In fact, it was left 1/2 painted for over 3 years!!!

Well, Finally, I am putting some love into it. With the house being on the market, it needed to be done.

I've stepped away from my normal decorating style, and trying something new.

I consider this more of a White Farmhouse decor, rather than my traditional Primitive Colonial or Primitive Farmhouse, that you will see upstairs.  Even though when you see the entire space, there are touches of primitive here and there.

This is still a work in progress but I hope to be back soon with more to share.

Here are a couple of teaser photos taken with my phone.

What happened to my camera??

Well, it took a vacation to Costa Rica with my Mom and Dad.

Dad decided to jump in to the pool, forgetting that the camera was in his pocket!!


Needless to say, the camera was not waterproof.

Hopefully, I will have a new one by the time I get this space finished, so I can show it off with some better quality pictures.

Above: I found two of these wonderful white plates at GW yesterday.

On the one above, I Mod Podged an antique post card in the center.  On the back, I hot glued a strip of burlap to make a hanger.

I just love the way it turned out!! :)

Over my black leather recliner I placed this wonderful white woven blanket, also a yesterday Goodwill find.

I was so excited when I noticed the price, $4 bucks!


I found the wonderful burlap lamp shade at Dollar General for $5.00, so cute!!

You may also notice, I brought in my old gate from the porch.  On this I am going to be hanging old b/w photos, post cards and such.

I used small rusty safety pins to attach them to the gate.
