Happy Friday! 
Before the weekend starts I would like to share with you the changes I have made recently to our family room.
I am sure taking my time this year decorating for Fall, but here is another room already finished.

I did start with changing the drapes.
I found a set of linen 96' window panels at Ross on sale and for $14.00, I couldn't even make them myself any cheaper.
They were a little see-through, so I just lined them.

And now when you enter the kitchen and family room area it all blends better.

 And then I was ready to add the Fall decor.

I did start with making some new pillow covers for the sofa and hearth using drop cloth 
and the placemats I purchased at Walmart.

Last weekend I was able to finish the second cabinet door tray and with it 
I created a simple vignette on the coffee table.

Even the little round table got a few Fall touches.
I just changed the blue flowers on the basket for some Fall leaves and added two small pumpkins.

The mantle took me a little while longer, but it is finally done. :)

I am now finishing the front porch, but meanwhile I am just enjoy the pretty Fall colors.
This is the view from my kitchen. It just makes kitchen chores a little "happier". :)

I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
Happy Fall!
