The redecorated Family room Reveal

In January we started work on painting our family room, adding board and battens and redecorating. I’m happy to say the room is done, well, about 99% done. The golds and reds of the 90s are gone and we’ve got a new lighter look.

Here’s the tour and all the projects it took to get to this point.

First we painted the top walls palladian blue, an historic color from Benjamin Moore and painted the bottom a premixed white. Next we put up the board and room

We ordered a new couch from Hickory Craft and got our comfortable chairs and ottoman slipcovered.  The wire basket from TJ Maxx is a good place to throw newspapers or pillows.

The window panels came from Target and the pillows from TJ MAXX. I love that store for home accessories. They always have the best stuff.


The clock got a makeover with homemade chalk paint and I brought in the lamps from the living room. The mannequin came up from the basement.

This sweet little Annie Sloan chalk painted table with a Royal Design stencil is used in the room, where ever it’s needed.

The bombe chest was painted with CeCe Caldwell chalk paint.

stone fireplace

The black lantern is from Pottery Barn outlet, silver trays and horses head are thrifted pieces and the pallet sign is a DIY project.

urn, chalk paint chair, antlers

The side chair got a new look and the urn came from a thrift shop. I like how the antlers look in the urn.

plate wall

I created a free form plate wall that wraps around the corner, above a repurposed yardsale dresser that now holds the tv. A vintage stool is from an antique store and rope trim was added to a plastic planter. And yet another pillow from TJ Maxx. I found the galvanized box in my husband’s stash.

slipcover chair ottoman

Here are our slipcovered chairs with an old shutter from the re-build it store. Check out my cool old rotary phone.


I love how the slipcovers turned out with their little pleated skirts. My slipcover gal does a great job. Slipcovering is one project I won’t do, I think I would get so frustrated and wouldn’t finish, so I’m happy to have someone else do it.

black lamp shade

My husband’s black lamp is old and really heavy. I was going to look for a new one but I think I’ll keep this one. It serves us well because it has two light bulbs, one on either side.

And finally our Restoration Hardware coffee table knockoff. I think it turned out great and I can stash some baskets or wooden boxes underneath for added storage.

The red and gold is gone, but it took a ton of projects to get this room done.  I still want to tweak it a little and add in a few more things on the walls and in some empty spots, but I want to keep it light and comfy looking.

Here’s a before of the clock and bombe chest that were made over and chairs that got slipcovered.


Here’s the giant tv armoire that got moved to the basement and the chair that was made over.

When we started this project we also painted the kitchen and powder room. Yesterday I painted the vanity with ASCP and I still want to make some shelves for in there. In the kitchen I’m still working on the top cabinets. The weather has been too darn hot to work outside and I’ve been invaded by zucchini so I’ve slowed down on projects, but it’s getting there. Smile

So what do you think? Will board and batten be on its way out soon and define the early 21st century as a decorating trend? Or will it stay around a while? Will blue/greens be replaced by a new darker color?

Thanks for visiting! Debbie (((xx)))


  1. Deb-You did a LOT of work in there! WOW! Does it ever look nice! I really like the lighter color pallet and that little blue/green table is just darling. I really like how you wrapped the plates around the is always tricky trying to figure out what to do behind a piece you have placed on the diagonal. That really is just the ticket. Blessings to you- you did a wonderful job-xo Diana

  2. It looks great, Debbie! I love that blue on your walls. All the furniture looks great. Love those slipcovers! I like a little pleat myself.

  3. Hi Debra! oh, your family room looks wonderful! Love your new sofa and the slip covered chairs are charming. Looks like a totally different room.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  4. Splendid job! Love the colors and the softness of the room now and I liked it before. We have old board and batten at the cottage from nearly 100 years ago and I prefer to think that it looks timeless, classic or something like that. You sure get a lot accomplished.

  5. What a difference all of your work made! Love it…a whole different mood. That sofa is gorgeous, and don’t you dare get rid of that black lamp! It is perfect there, and finding one with 2 bulbs these days is almost impossible. I love your clock too. Isn’t it a nice feeling to finally feel like it is finished?

  6. your space looks absolutely wonderful. Great transformation and changes.

  7. That is an incredible transformation, great job.

  8. Looks great. Love the fresh clean look. Love those slips.

  9. Debra,
    I love the changes you made in your room – I want to do the Board and Batten in my home so curious to see what other’s think – if it’s just a passing fad or here to stay. I still have the reds and yellows in my family room/kitchen……by the time I have the time to redo it – it will probably be in style again! HA
    I really enjoy your Blog, Thank you for sharing your talents!

    Love your living room and I really like the atmosphere of the room. You have a good choice of colors and I really appreciate it.

  11. It looks fantastic, Debra!! I love the changes you’ve made!

    Such a cool coffee table, and I love the movement of plates you have hung on the wall above the flat screen!


  12. Debbie! I love it all! It’s beautiful, like magazine beautiful! I have a pallet in my garage. I am inspired by yours to get busy with it! I am changing my home from brown and golds to gray, blues and greens! Even if dark colors come back, I’m headed towards the light!

  13. I like that color on your walls. All the furniture also looks good. Very good transformation, great job done!

  14. Can you tell me how you would compare AS chalk paint and CeCe Caldwell? Do you prefer one over the other?
