I’ll admit these pictures are a little old.
They were taken before I started the built-in bookcases in the dining room – a project that makes the house a mess and will take (like everything) way longer than I expect!
My Living Room
Almost never looks this good… aren’t playrooms supposed to keep the toys corralled into one room? Yet somehow they still end up everywhere.
I love genealogy and I have old family portraits on the wall of my dining room. Some of the pictures go back more than 150 years.
Since these pictures were taken I’ve added a chandelier ($20 at the thrift store - I kid you not!) over the table.
And the tripod lamp I made is now in the corner.
We’ve got a great little opening between the dining area and kitchen. Maybe you’ve noticed that I love plants…
This is the wall opposite the dining table, and the doorway leads into the nursery and master bedroom. This space changes a lot. Right now it’s getting ready for the built-in bookcases.
Here’s the other side of the doorway… also getting ready for the built-in bookcase. That palm died not long after I bought it… anyone have any luck keeping palms alive indoors?
Ahhh, knotty pine… you will soon be gone… I think I’ll paint these and put them somewhere else.
OK, that was my dining room. It’s been a hard place to work with. Big for a dining room, but not big enough to be more than a dining room. A little seating area near the new built-in bookcases is in the plans though.
A chair rail might spice it up too. What do you think?
