Come and knock on my door...part 2

This is our family room. It is probably the most used room in the house besides the kitchen.
Our fireplace was that nasty orange-y brick, and we painted it white.....This room came together pretty quickly, and I'm super happy with the way it turned out.....

This secretary was purchased at an antique store...we were originally going to paint it glossy grey, but decided to leave it as ties in the wood ceiling beams in nicely, I think.
We tacked on the hot pink oil cloth to give it some pizazz.

The elephant and birds were found in thrift stores. The uppers jar is Jonathan Adler, given to me by my sweet friend Amber. The stick was something my son found while we were on a walk, and I just left it there!
Wallpaper by Graham and Brown. The branch was in our back yard, and we painted it white.
The giant television is obnoxious.

Couch and chair is Z Gallerie. Rug is from Target.

Found the chair in a neighbor's garbage...painted it hot pink. I love that it is missing an arm. Pillow from Sa-Sea on Etsy. Lamp is Pier One.

This deer head was made by a Chicago Artist. Found on Etsy.

Our coffee table is one of my faves. Got it on Craigslist...Painted it glossy black. There are 3 pieces of marble on the top. Weighs a TON.

The trunk came from an Estate Sale when I was living in LA...Thrift store animals. Lamp from Urban Outfiters.

Z Gallerie table. The "punk" vase was a gift from my brothers about 10 years ago. I broke it once and about had a FIT. Thank God for hot glue.

Vintage pendant light from an Estate Sale.

Hopefully those floors will get done sooooon. They're going to be super dark. Cannot wait. I don't care if I have to sweep them 10 times a day. I'll make my toddler do it.

Love the wallpaper, pink chair and white deerhead. When you come to cook me dinner you can decorate my house then too.

Love the "Uppers" jar. I need it. And I also need an upper.

and I also need to know what kind of downers you give your kids so that they don't break everything in your house. We've dwindled down to just a shredded magazine and a remote duct taped to our couch.

oh yea, round 1 of the yarn letters was a complete train wreck. round 2 is tomorrow. I plan on showing those letters who their mama is.
