Industrial Family Room – REVEAL!


For this challenge, Mark and I chose to update the most abused room in our house – our family room.

Here is the before:

Family Room, before the #30DayFlip | by

Here it is, AFTER–with only 15 days of work invested.

One of the biggest issues was my failure to find properly sized art on our huge wall. I could never find anything sized (or priced) just right – so I made my own!

You can read more about my HUGE (72″ x 56″) Restoration Hardware knock-off Paris art here. (Theirs = $1,700 Mine = $40).

We still have a few projects remaining…(my trip to Israel set me back a bit, so ours was really a 15-day flip!) But we are already so much happier with this space and the progress we’ve made. I will update this post as we add a few finishing touches.

Source list:

  • DIY Trim & Molding (see the video on how we did it, tutorial pending & costs)
  • DIY Trim TutorialRyobi Power Tools
  • Wall Paint:  Olympic Grey Ghost
  • White Trim:  Olympic Pegasus (leftover from bathroom project)
  • Oversized Wall Art: I DIY’d this, Restoration Hardware inspired Paris Art $40 (tutorial)
  • Baskets: on entertainment center: Michael’s $9.96 on clearance
  • Industrial Accent Tables: We DIY’d these, parts from DIY Cartel $110 each (see tutorial)
  • Industrial bookends (see post)

 Galvanized antique sap buckets mounted as wall planters. I tried my hand at a little Fixer Upper-inspired decor.

Our DIY industrial tables aren’t quite finished. We’re letting them settle into the space before we decide on the final finish.

Read my original post and where I purchased them here.

I will add a few more pictures once we put our finishing touches in the room. For now, we feel like the room is lighter and airier. For us, this was a major accomplishment–and it wasn’t very easy. We spent a lot of time going up / down ladders, running to the garage for extra cuts for our wall trim. But without the #30DayFlip I don’t think we would have been quite as motivated.

I’m so happy to have hosted my very first DIY challenge where readers participated! I get to know all of them on a completely different level, plus, it’s always more fun to DIY and share progress with a group with similar interests standing by to cheer you on. I’m amazed by the results (see all of the before & after pictures at the bottom of this page).

  6. Wow, the after looks like a totally different room. I love your taste of decor and your huge DIY decor above the mantle. Thanks for sharing with us at the Home Matters #homematters linky party. We love having you and hope you join us again.

    1. Thanks Zan! I was thinking our color choices would make the room a little bland, but it feels so much brighter with just a little paint. Putting large art on the wall validates that space…it makes you notice the ceiling height more. Thanks so much for stopping by!
