More family room pictures

After

 
Before

I'm really happy with my picture bookshelf.  I painted the picture frames white...added a splash of green...put a couple of my antique collections in groups.  They say if you have a collection to put them together for display.   


 I'm still waiting on a wallpaper I ordered, which is going to go on the back wall behind the shelves.  I'll be sure to post a picture of that.  That will make a big difference!

...so for my old iron shelf I put my spindles in a group...added some more white and a touch of green.
...so my plan is to stay pretty neutral in my family room with the grays/white/blacks...that way whatever quilt I am showcasing I can accent with color around the room..the same color or color's in my quilt!  That way I'm sort of changing up my decor every so often and won't get tired of it!

My husband hurt is hip playing basketball...he thinks he's still 25!  So my bookshelves and side table are still out in the shop waiting to be painted black.  Once I get those done I'll be able to put everything together.

A little bit at a time...
