We've been busy updating the house. Well, I've been busy telling R exactly what I want and he's been busy doing it! I love my dining room and formal living. I hate formal living rooms. What's the point? I have a big family and needed a big table. This area allows me to have unlimited space to do whatever I want with it. So basically it is a huge dining room with a chair by the window. The chair disappears for the Christmas tree in December. Still working on finding the perfect piece for the window.
