This was my sister Julie's family room a year ago.
It held a new sofa purchased for the room, two wooden end table boxes that my Dad made several years back for Julie's former apartment, and a giant green lamp that I bought at the Goodwill.
While visiting this past week, and doing some thrift store shopping, I found this giant metal map of the US that we decided would be a perfect art piece for over the sofa.
...and here is the room now
The room got a coat of a warm chocolate paint. The end table boxes got spray painted with a black hammered finish. The green lamp got a new drum shade and a new terracotta color. Here is an up close of the lamp before and after.
