Early Autumn Family Room

Yesterday I finished making a bench to go with our farmhouse table. I am hoping to get it photographed later this week. I took photos as I went so I can do a tutorial, although it might be another week or so before I get to that. Today I thought I would show you the autumn changes we have made in our family room so far.



The wreath was from Pier 1 several years ago. The pumpkins were both from Hobby Lobby (I think) quite a few years ago. I purchased them after Halloween when they were just a dollar or two and then painted them. We finally have real pumpkins here in Williamsburg. We've bought a few for our front doorstep and I hope to get some more to add in here and replace these faux ones once the weather gets a little cooler. It's nice having the fake ones, though, while we are waiting for it to cool down a bit.


And yes, we've added another little spot for toys in this room. Not too long ago I got this basket at TJ Maxx. Last fall I did a post on where we hid all of our toys. Back then Lola was just a few months old so she really didn't have any, it was just Lillie's stuff. Now that Lola's toys have been added to the mix we had to find one more little spot to help contain them. =)









Another painted pumpkin:


I hope you all are having a wonderful week!

  2. I like the warm and bright colors that you have brought in here and there. I still love the neutrals, the areas of bright color work great without overwhelming the peaceful nature of your home. I do love that feeling of light and bright space!

    Have a good day, Nancy

  14. It is so lovely, as always! Did you make the pillows in the 3rd photo? I love plaid this time of year (and it works well going into the holidays) I am thinking this would be fun to try on some plain pillows!

  15. Lovely! I'm a huge fan of baskets for toys, makes it all much easier on the eye when they're in a pretty container. Of course, my daughter's toys are spilling over at the moment - not so pretty.

  20. I just love your blog and all your projects! I was wondering where you got the little round table that is between your white chairs in the family room. Do you have a post about you painting it?
    Thanks!

    1. Thanks. I got it about five years ago at Pottery Barn. It was a floor model and was on clearance. Here is the post from when I painted it:

    1. Thanks! The white chairs are from a store in Williamsburg called Savvy. The ottoman is from Target and the toile chair was a second hand find that I got for $25 and had recovered. The fabric was from Joann's. Have a wonderful Sunday!
