Painted floors and spring decor in the Family Room



Hello!  Happy Tuesday!!

Over the weekend, I finally got all of the furniture moved back into the family room.  I also did a little spring decorating while I was at it!

I have been moving things around from all over the house lately, changing things up with the new painted floors, but not really wanting to spend a lot of money...more just wanting to freshen things up with what I already have!

So here are more pics of the new look in our family room...




{I flipped my "chippy door" to the blue side for spring}




Every February I ask my friend, Diane, to get some flowering branches for me.  I just love flowering branches.  This time, the white cherry blossoms were what was available...










One of my 1920's garage doors made it into this room.  I am really liking it in here :)  I added some of my favorite vintage fern prints to the glass panes...




{the foyer looking into the family room}




I'm still working on getting my studio in order, but I'm getting close :))


Hope you have a great day ~

Tracey



p.s.  Don't forget that all remaining items in the Flea Market Finds section of the shop are on SALE!!!!!!!  Our next trip to France is in early April...

Your floors look gorgeous! I love the mirror in the foyer. Did you age it or is it really old? I think there is a product for aging mirrors, but can't remember what it's called. What a beautiful room.

Tracey said...

JoeyLea the mirror is vintage and the "ghosting" on it is due to age, I did not age it. This is how it looked when I bought it 10 years ago :)

Love it! We have hardwood floors in our bedrooms and hallway. Don't know about our living room yet (we recently moved here and it's currently carpeted). I would LOVE to have painted wood floors. Even hubby would be on board with it.

But we have two dogs that wrestle a lot in the house...wondering if a painted floor would hold up well (?)

Your photos make me long for springtime here too!

I like the old clock faces in the frame...very neat idea.

Susan Thomas said...

This room actually made me hold my breath...it's so pretty I inhaled and didn't exhale til the end of the post...Ha ha.
This room is Gorgeous!

Susan said...

Congrats on finishing all that hard work, Tracey. The efforts were worth it - your floors look amazing! Thanks for sharing the tips in your previous post. I would love to do this, but it would be a hard sell to my husband. :)
I really enjoy seeing the spring touches in your home, which I agree is the best place to 'shop'. Fabulous blossoming branches!

Blondie's Journal said...

Your floors look beautiful, Tracey! You must be thrilled with them. All of the changes are so pretty and springlike. Love the branches and the clock faces hanging from ribbon, very sweet!

Such beauty. Wonderful, warm, inviting, a magical space. So much love went into decorating this space. I love the sweet blossoms, the colored glass, wire and galvanized baskets, the chippy painted doors not to mention the floors!:)
