Family Room Partial Reveal

For those of you who are new to the blog, we built our house about 6 months ago. Because of this, we have been going room by room decorating the house, little by little. Sometimes it seems overwhelming to get the house done and then other times, it feels completely organic.

The next room on our to-do list was our family room. I knew I wanted to do a gallery wall  on this big blank wall and I knew I wanted to do something more bold with bigger frames. I even posted about what I wanted in my Hallway Gallery Reveal HERE. And then, by some miracle, The Busy Budgeting Mama posted a reveal of her basement and my heart went pitter patter for her gallery wall. She wrote that she was going to put together a tutorial and I couldn't even wait (she actually did the tutorial yesterday! Check it out! It has links to the exact frames she bought...how to do the Staples website prints...and how she even cut out the pictures!). I literally went that EXACT day to Ikea and bought the frames she suggested for $5 each.


Have you ever done the engineer prints from Staples?!? The quality was AMAZING. I mean REALLY AMAZING! We ordered the 24 x 36's and they were actually bigger than life size. But the best part?!? They were only $3.59. Umm hello!
 Tell me that isn't ridiculously amazing for less than $4. The frames we used were actually much smaller than a 24 x 36, so I went across the street and took photos of the kids - so that I'd have a big background I could crop out.
You absolutely have to check out The Busy Budgeting Mama's tutorial and do this look! It makes such a great statement for about $40!

Stay tuned for the rest of the reveal. This room already looks different and I can't wait to show you my Hardwood Floor reveal! We have ripped out all the carpet in our downstairs (minus the guest bedroom) and replaced it with a beautiful laminate floor. We also got rid of the brown rug under our coffee table and are debating what to replace it with. Maybe a black/white stripe or pattern? Suggestions welcome!
