Miss Flo progress : family room
This post could also be titled "THE LUCKIEST GARAGE SALE FIND IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE. PERIOD. EVER."
Why you might ask? Because I got an 8x10 antelope rug. For $5.
You read that right. $5.
Let me tell you something - anytime you have a 'feeling' when you see a garage sale sign --- just GO. Do not question the feeling. I have followed this rule pretty religiously and it has yielded great results. Case in point, this rug. I stopped by a neighborhood sale not knowing exactly what I would find. But as soon as I got out of the car, the clouds parted and the garage sale gods smiled on me.
These wonderful men had just redecorated their house and were 'purging.' And oh me oh my am I glad they were. Full disclosure: the reason they had this rug priced sooooooo low is because it isn't in mint condition. More full disclosure: I don't really care. The rug that I had planned to go in the family room will now go in the master.
Dais loves it too. Obvs.
Some other elements in this room: I've talked about the doggie art here. Before we moved, I made a matching one to mirror each side of the federal mirror. I love how it all fills the wall. And the wing back I posted about here. Our sectional is from Chic Warehouse in Houston. But I posted about having the trim added here. Shortly after we moved in, I realized our previous coffee table (which you can see here) just wasn't going to work. So it got replaced by two blue and white garden stools. Surprising? Not at all. You can see by now that I obviously love blue/white in every room. Also - my wonderful previous employer gifted me with this amazing flush mount for my bday and it happily resides in this room as well:
The other side of the family room isn't even close to ready. Need this. And these. Then maybe it will have it's blog debut.
In other Miss Flo news, this is happening outside:
It's going well over here! Hope you all have a great week :)
