Making changes in the family room





Hey all! I'm back to show you some updates I've made in the family room lately! I'm so so stinking happy with them. 
You may remember how we knocked down a wall years ago and nearly doubled the size of our family room. We doubled the length of the room but it is more narrow than it used to be because of that. We didn't buy any new furniture when we made over this space and instead made what we had work for the room. 
We had two arm chairs in the room -- one in this cozy corner: 
And one off to the other side, closer to the sofa: 
That corner by the windows used to be where I'd sit and work every day, but I haven't used that space in quite a long time since I finished our office/craft room in the loft. That corner was such a cozy spot but felt so detached from the room. When we had company of course it was empty because no one wanted to sit by themselves. ;) 
I knew since we finished the makeover years ago that I wanted to add two matching chairs at the end of this room, but it wasn't a priority. So occasionally I would search and see what I could find for a good price. I never found anything that was the price I wanted and the style I wanted at the exact same time.  Until I came upon the Rotterdam chair from Wayfair a couple weeks ago:
It checked off all of my wants -- classic design, neutral color, simple look -- and the nailhead trim was just the icing on the cake. :) 
I rarely buy chairs online -- I'm not sure I ever have actually. I like to try them out first. But the reviews were great and the price was right so I went ahead and ordered. (Side note -- they were supposed to be two-day delivery but I ordered at 6 p.m. one night and by 8 a.m. the next morning they were on our porch!)
We had a small candlestick table I made there before, but I wanted something a little lighter feeling between the tables. (I moved the candlestick table to another room because I love it.) I found a small side table at HomeGoods on clearance but di...
