Our family room/living room is one of my favorite rooms in our house and I'm so glad to share it with you here for Kelly's Korner -- Real Life home tours!
When we moved into our ranch we made what was supposed to be the living room our dining room.
So for a couple of years we had a make shift living room in the basement.
We made it the best we could, but it was so DARK and dreary.
One day when I couldn't take it anymore, I went online in hopes of some HGTV dream come true!!
Well I didn't find it, but we did invite a crew to come out and film us making our dreams come true!
That's right you can read all about our CRAZY feature on Renovation Realities here if you want.
I found a fireplace on Craigslist for $300 and you can read here about the adventures of installing a gas fireplace when you have no idea how.
I wanted to keep the timeless appeal of marble and hardwood but wanted it to reflect our reclaimed and repurposed style so I went with a cedar plank above the fireplace that is whitewashed and features an antique wooden medallion reclaimed from an old university building.
I try to keep the room simple and ready to be filled with people and love and laughter rather.
However those people do come with 'stuff' so I use every bin and basket I can find to tame the clutter. We are taking a new family approach in 2016.
I'm eager to see other living rooms on the tour...
Would you be CRAZY enough to DIY on TV?

From R7 to you --
Be a blessing.
