My favorite room of the house is definitely our media room. We have lived in our home for 8 years and never did anything with this room. So for Christmas, we bought ourselves a big plasma TV! Well, of course I couldn’t just have it sit on the floor, I had to get this room in shape.
Here is what it looked like before.
I had a VERY limited budget. So instead of getting the $5,000 leather sectional that I really wanted. I settled on this $500 micro fiber floor sample. It’s not the sleekest thing, but man is it comfy!!! There are also two recliners… a big hit with friends.
Style: I wanted something cozy and a little more modern. My usual style is traditional, but I think this is just “media room on a budget” style:-)
Favorite Items: I love the chocolate brown walls and the Ikea bar table. The top is white. I think the white and yellow accents make this room a little more hip than my usual style.
This is truly a lived in room. A favorite place to entertain and the kids love to eat at the bar table. That light hanging over the table cost $7! I love Ikea!!
I’m ready for American Idol to start back up so we can have family pizza night again! It’s funny, when we have friends over for a movie, we tell the kids that it’s scary and they have to stay in the playroom. Works most of the time! ha.
I hung my favorite movie couples on the wall. Sandy & Danny from Grease, Maverick and the blonde chick from Top Gun, along with Adrian and Rocky (my husband’s favorite!).
One of these days I’ll get a rug and add more shelves around the TV for storage. Yeah, my husband will be so thrilled to put more cheap furniture together:-)
