Family Room Makeover

Our family room (my kids play room) was in major need of a refresh. I wanted to make a space that’s cozy and fun and that works for us now and as my kids grow. This entire project started after finding this really unique vintage WWII trunk at a local antique store in Nashville. I mixed old with new to create a space that’s comfortable & lived in.

One thing I had decided on even before choosing a paint color was that this room needed a huge, comfy bean bag chair. After weighing the options available, the Big Joe Fuf XXL was the clear choice. Its over 7 ft wide, comes in several color and fabric options (I chose Fog Lenox) and truly feels like you’re laying on a cloud. My kids are completely obsessed! It’s the best for movie nights.

In addition to my two antique pieces, the WWII trunk (using it as a coffee table that doubles as toy storage) and the black side table (the antique shop owner told us it’s from the 1860’s!). We found a really long sofa that is big enough for the space and a mid-century modern style TV stand that works well with the sloped walls.

We also had this little corner with a space designed for a wet bar which we opted not to do during construction. So we decided to utilize it as best we could and my husband created a built-in desk and made an otherwise awkward space so functional! This whole space truly just came together so easily and is such a cool space to chill and play video games and hang out as a family.
