I decided that we really need the space in the garage that the family room furniture was taking. We moved the cabinets into the room so they will have to be removed when I can get to installing the perimeter tile.
We brought in the big couch. This makes a reasonable single bed for an extra guest. I used the leather seat cushions from this couch in the living room so it has the seat cushion from the old hickory couch. It all matches pretty well.
On the other side of the room we have an antique chair from my mother that I had recovered probably twenty years ago. I was curled up in this chair when it was covered in gold brocade with a fluted back. I was snuggled under a heavy knit afghan burning with fever and waiting for the doctor’s home visit to treat me for a case of measles. That memory of a doctor’s home visit sure shows my age!
Plus there are more black cabinets. These cabinets were in two rooms in our AZ house. It seems like this room is now dominated by them! But there is so much storage for sewing and craft work and other hobbies. Perfect for a family room.
Ideally I would like to have a work table and chairs in this room but I’ll have to get something and I’m not sure what will fit.
I checked on Craigslist and found this small table that should work great for games and sewing. And it is a nice match between the pine couch arms and black cabinets. It will do.
