My Medieval Room

Updated on March 23, 2013

My Family Room

This is the second in my series of different theme rooms I have in my house. This room is kind of hard to describe. It's very long, and very skinny. It measures 17 X 30, goes out through my front door and has one little closet in it. There's a galley window to my kitchen, and a big old grate at the edge of the room where the heat for the whole house used to come out. The far wall has textured paneling on it, and the floor is hardwood that we refinished.

This lens will show you the decorating we did in this interesting room that we use as a dining/family room. The picture you see here is what we started with.

What We Changed, And Didn't Change

We didn't do any painting in this room. We ripped up the carpet, refinished the floor underneath, added a ceiling fan that my husband put in, added more furniture, and a couple of room rugs. There's really no specific cut off for the dining/family room split. We just have our table on one side of the room.

The Decorations

My husband and I both have an interest in pewter figurines and weapon replicas. I have a lot of unicorn collectibles, and since the room was long and skinny, it reminded us of an old castle, so we decided to go with the medieval theme in it. It's not completely accurate, but we like it just the same.

      My daughter-in-law's birthday is coming up and I want to get her something I know she likes. She really likes anything medieval. I think I'm going to get her some medieval figurines.
