De-Chevroning the Family Room Part Two

Last week I left off with a post about changing up a few accessories in the family room.  There was a bit of chevron overload going on in there.  First, I switched the fabric on the coffee table, which made a big difference to me but probably not to anyone else that walks into the room.  It was driving me bonkers.  As was the fabric-wrapped canvas hanging above the couch. 


I wasn't sure what I would replace it with until I was shopping at a boutique called Francesca's.  Their walls are always filled with fun decor that you can also purchase.  I was cashing out when I spotted a metal piece painted in a minty color.  It was only 20 bucks but at first I said no.  But then I said yes.  And now it's on our wall.


I like the worn look and the quote written in scrabble letters is kind of cute...work hard and be nice to people.  Maybe a little cheesy but I like it.  And mint green?  How could I pass it up.



A little less chevron means our eyes can rest easy now.  I think the rug is as much zigzag as anyone can handle.  There's still a chevron frame (not pictured here) that must go, I just need to find a replacement.

I have a couple kid activities to share soon so stay tuned! Pin It
