I told you I moved the TV into our other "formal" living room. Well, I like the idea of having a family room and a den, not a den and a formal living room. While our big room is technically "formal," I still think of it as the den. So, now, we have a family room. I love that it's right by the dining area. I feel like it really is a great place to spend time as a family.
Of course, the dogs aren't allowed on the new couches, but they still have to at least one place to relax. Their lives are very stressful, after all.
I still have some painting to do, but as of now, it's just kind of a mish-mash of stuff together. It goes together OK for now. It feels very comfy and cozy and that's what I wanted.
There is a bit of a glare from here, but we don't spend much time watching TV during the day at this point, so for now, it's just fine.
The curtains make more sense now, I think they "match" better than before. And like I said, it's comfortable. That's what we were missing before - I truly comfortable room to spend time. I am very happy with how it all turned out!
