"F" is for Family Room Makeover

 Paint: family room makeover
(and a new wreath)

We moved in almost four months ago and finally have the family room in order.

Just a reminder of what the family room used to look like:

And now (please forgive my collaged picture):

I made a new (old) wreath on the far wall:

And added a round game table in the corner:

The entire room is now painted Benjamin Moore sea pearl with semi gloss white trim.  
We covered all the red paneling, trim and built in bookshelves.

And in this corner we have a round game table with pendant light:

The far left side is not yet totally complete but I have plans:
I used all faux greenery for the wreath:

I simply placed floral stems I had on hand that appealed to me in piles:

Divided each pile into 3 sections and began building the wreath in thirds:

Then hung the wreath in between the two windows:
