Setting The Stage

To get started with your family room makeover, begin by decluttering and removing any unnecessary items from the space.

This will give you a fresh canvas to work with.

Next, create the back drop.  

I love a dark cozy space with saturated color.  

Isn’t this green amazing?  

It’s perfect for creating a movie room feeling.

Then I added this vintage brick wallpaper to add even more coziness.  

I didn’t like the carpeting in this room at all, so I bought a large woven sisal rug to cover it up.  

It was a very affordable choice.

 Now, I’m ready to do the fun stuff, shopping for my vintage decor.

Thrifting Ideas

Now, let’s talk about the thrill of thrifting.

I find the best things to create a beautiful home in a sustainable way, by visiting my local thrift store, antique stores, estate sales, facebook marketplace, and garage sales to uncover hidden treasures.

Keep in mind that you may have to visit these stores multiple times to find the perfect pieces.

Don’t be discouraged if you don’t find what you’re looking for on your first visit.

It takes patience and determination to find the perfect thrifted home decor.  

I love old picture frames.  

This large frame is one on my favorite  secondhand items.  

I love that it frames this ox head beautifully.  

I also used two secondhand frames, stacked, to create the beautiful artwork that a friend of mine painted.  

It’s my favorite this in the whole room.

Beautiful Storage

I always need storage.  

Keep an open mind when looking for storage, wicker baskets are wonderful for tucking away items.

I love this vintage trunk that I use for my coffee table.

They make great places to store games or extra bedding for when guests are staying the night.  

The black nightstands are also secondhand finds that that made for great diy projects.

I painted them with a fresh coat of paint to match design style.  

And the best part is that they were a great deal.  

They are perfect for an end table.

Vintage Audio Visual Cabinet

One of my best finds, was a large retail display cabinet that was in a local store.  

It is 100 years old.  

It was too large to fit in the family room, so I used the bottom half in the family to store the audio visual equipment.

The top half is master bedroom.  

I use it as a bookcase.

PRO TIP: Give vintage decor a fresh coat of paint to match your design style.

I added cozy velvet curtains that I made years ago for my living room.  

I knew that this would be perfect place to add yet more coziness, along with the woven blinds, to the windows.  

I used a second pair to cover the French doors into the family room.

If you are new here, welcome.

I am so glad that you are here.

I’m Renae and I love all things home, French Country design, easy recipes and life on the farm.

Add Vintage Lighting

Another great second hand item to keep watch for is light fixtures.

I found the two vintage lamps at two of my favorite thrift stores.  

They were great finds.

They don’t match, but they are similar is size and style.

 I find such good stuff thrifting.  

The old stuff adds so much more character than new pieces.  

Vintage books are another one of my favorite things to watch for.  

I added some to my vintage shelf under my vintage artwork.  

Old books always look great and can be used in many ways.

The Thrill of the Hunt

When I initially pictured giving our dated family room a refresh, I envisioned trawling through thrift shops, yard sales, and online marketplace sites on the hunt for hidden treasures to incorporate into the design.

It’s one of my favorite pastimes.  

From gorgeous vintage frames picked up for mere dollars to secondhand end tables rescued from a curbside marketplace pick up, I’ve loved uncovering one-of-a-kind decor items with their own special stories to tell.

I love our cozy new gathering place featuring personality-packed decor scored for a fraction of typical retail prices!
