This is the last post showing how I decorated the family room in a Travel theme for the summer......I am finally finished!
Before I give you a tour of the family room, I wanted to share the gorgeous canvas print the my daughter and family gave me for my birthday. Yes, I celebrated a birthday recently......and no, I won't tell you how old I am....lol!
I'm calling this post "See the USA in your Chevrolet" This was the theme song on the Dinha Shore Chevy Show back in the 50's. If you've never heard the song.....you must! I've been humming it all morning while I put this post together!
I raided H's collection of cars and borrowed his Chevy lamp for my travel decor. I decided I didn't want to use his yellow and white Chevy on the end table, and later moved it to......
Don't you like it better here? When I was a Senior in High School, I drove a white Chevy like the one on the right......I thought I looked pretty cool back then....lol!
I replaced the white and yellow Chevy with this SS, but later decided I didn't like it either and put it away. I finally decided that I liked the lamp just by itself.
H bought this lamp at a yard sale many years ago......
I embellished the shade a little!
This is H's chair.
I have two end tables pushed together because he need's lots of room for all his "stuff"
You can also "See the USA" driving a pink Caddy!
I covered a pillow with the same fabric that I used on the coffee table for H to put behind his back and a Believe pillow for behind his neck.
Now for a tour around the family room. If you missed my post on the mantel, here is a link to it (it won't have the cars because I just added them this morning)......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2017/04/maps-on-mantel.html

And if you missed my link to how I decoupaged my globe ( it won't have the car in those photo's because I just added it this morning) here is the link to that post.......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2017/04/shabby-chic-world-globe.html
I am asked often "what do you do with all those pillows"
I like to keep the pillows on the sofa when it's just H and I, but when we need more seating, I tuck them in the shelves on the end table like you see in the photo on the right.
