Happy Monday friends. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today Im happy to announce a fabulous collaboration Im excited to be part of…
The basic gist is we all choose a room in our homes that needs a little attention, and over the next 6 weeks we will paint, primp, and DIY it into a space we love. For this challenge I’ve chosen to makeover our dining room.
Other than going from three bathrooms down to one, the dining room has been the area affected most by the downsize. Our last house had 2 large dining areas (one we never used), while the bungalow has only one teeny tiny dining space. Thankfully we already had a smaller table on hand because our last one was much too large for this space. Its found a new home with one of our sweet neighbors who happened to be in the market for a large white table that could seat 10-12.
Needless to say this area is a definite challenge since it has to function in the exact same way (perhaps even more) as our previous dining room in half the space. Though I don’t quite have a specific design plan in place just yet, here’s what I’m planning:
- Replace the table. I’m sticking with the round shape because it just makes more sense in the space. It’s all about maximizing every inch in this room. It also will allow for a little better flow from the adjoining bedroom and kitchen.
- Create separation from the master bedroom. Our bedroom is right off the dining room, which isn’t a problem at all. Not having a door between the rooms is. I’ve envisioned a sliding door since the first time I saw the house.
- Get a rug
- Spruce up the built ins
- Nix the ceiling fan
- Create a small bar area
- Possibly replace the chairs. Naomi has never been a fan
Sounds easy enough, right?! I’m excited to get started. Make sure you pop in and see all the other spaces that’ll be getting some love. I cant wait to see what everyone else has up their sleeves.
Until next time…
