I thought I would post pictures of our living room turned dining room. Our dining room is really small and though conveniently located next to the kitchen it left much to be desired for entertaining let alone the 5 of us. So when we turned the largest room in the guest house into our family room I decided we didn't need a lone sofa sitting in this huge room. So we turned it into the dining room! It's not far from the kitchen. Just a few more steps. We really like it. These pictures were taken when we were just "living" with the idea. I don't want anything permanent because eventually it will be just hubby and I. So I'm looking for a chandelier that I can electrify and plug in like a lamp. I'll hang it over the table. We've decided we really like it and believe it or not I'm in the process of moving things around again. We lost our school room (not that we needed it any longer now that the kids are older) when father-in-law moved in. So I'm adding a bookcase for necessary school books and accommodating the 1890 treadle machine we inherited from the family. I'll share pictures of the "new" room when I get it done. Enjoy!!
This hutch sits behind the table. That's the front door we can kinda see.
I really enjoy getting around to everyone else's blogs and seeing what you all are doing in your homes. You are such an inspiration to me to keep working towards a lovely home for my family.
Oh, in case you were wondering what became of the old dining room? It's now a sitting room and very lovely. It's nice to have someone to sit on the couch and talk to while cooking dinner. I'll post about that at a later date. Have a great day!
