Many of you have asked how my dining room is going……..
Well…….it’s going, it’s just not there yet.
So, instead of making you wait a year before I find my next “Pretend Built In Bookshelf“, I thought I would share where it is.
Go easy on me people.
Ok. My mantel is just full of “stuff”. I am feeling out what I want up there.
I am still looking for my second perfect “built-in”.
The walls are naked until I figure out what I am doing.
So…….anyone recognize the table? I moved it from my breakfast room. I had a glass round table in here, but I just wasn’t feeling it. It lives in the breakfast room right now while I see if this works.
I can’t remember who suggested a round table. I think a few of you did, and it is a great idea to give much more space in the room.
The thing I like about the glass topped table was that it also opened up the room and the view to the fireplace.
It may still be a possibility. I would just have to find the right chairs. The table was only $25.00, so I can find a way to make it work in either room.
I found these two chairs at an antique mall yesterday for $20.00. I’m feeling them out here for “extra seating”.
We have easily fit six at this table before, so we could slide them right in.
I really wanted you to see how much room there is now for the chair to slide back and to get around the table.
Put your hand over my cluttered mantel and empty space on the left side of the fireplace.
Just look at the room I have now. No guest is backed right up to the fireplace anymore, with me worrying that they might be wearing flammable polyester.
I’m still looking for the right table to go in between these two chairs. I like these chairs for when my husband and I want to just sit in here and “chill”. Great place to go if the kids are watching TV in the living room.
REMEMBER: I am going for a “sitting room” kind of feel and dining area.
Moving out the armoire opened up this side tremendously and the feeling of openness in the whole room.
As you can tell, I haven’t even grasped this space yet.
Here is a before and after, to remind you of how far this room has come, although I am not finished.
Long story short……
~ I’m still not “feeling it”.
So, I either keep on “truckin’” and get this room finished or…..
I put my house up for sale because I am tired of messing with it!
Your job is not finished my friends. You helped start this transformation. Please help me finish it!
Like the changes so far?
Want to buy my house?
It comes with my immediate family all living within walking distance. That shouldn’t be an issue. Besides the fact that my parents have decided to build a cemetery in their yard. That’s normal isn’t it?
Let me hear your thoughts….or offers on the house. ; )
