Client's Family Room Makeover: More Progress Being Made

Hey there! I'm back to share the latest progress pics from my client's family room.

Please allow me to shed some light on the matter. Literally.

This is where it all began…

Let me tell you… this room is dark. Don't let the skylights and sliding door fool you. This room seriously needed to lighten up.

Painting the walls and whitewashing the brick helped. But, it was going to take more than paint to get the job done.

Enter my favorite solution for dark places… lights and mirrors...

The large orb chandelier we installed has the prettiest finish, and provides lots of light where once there was merely a sad, unused ceiling fan with no light source.

The mirror above the mantel reflects the light, as do the mirrored gallery wall frames.

I can't tell you what a huge difference it makes!

Now that we can actually see in here, we can start styling the bookshelves. Stay tuned…

I'd also like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the men and women who protect and defend our country's freedom. I'm heading out now to honor our vets at my son's third grade Veteran's Day program. 

Thanks for stopping by! God bless America!!


  1. Great job! That really brightened the whole room up and it actually even looks bigger than it did. I am betting they LOVE it!!!! Hope we see even more! xo Diana

  2. Looks great…so much better with the whitewashed bricks!!

  3. I love the change on the brick...a great answer too besides the lights and mirrors

  4. Gosh - what a difference a lighter colour and some sparkly mirrors can make - it really bounces the light around. And of course the whitewashed bricks are so much better :)
