After the great room, the next reveal on the agenda is the dining room!
Here’s how it looked 3 months ago:
Renovating the dining room was a breeze when compared to the great room. All it needed was new bamboo floors, a column-ectomy and a little layout switcheroo.
The original dining room was in the smaller back room, and the larger room with the bay window was the formal living room. Since the house already had a ginormous great room we thought the formal living room was a little unnecessary, so we took the opportunity to upgrade the dining room to the larger room so that the future homeowners can host big family dinners and all of that fun stuff (the room can actually accommodate a much larger table but we chose not to use our table’s leaves). To us, the smaller adjoining room makes more sense as a sitting area or study, but we left the junction box so the future owners can always turn it back into a dining room by moving the chandelier if they’re so inclined. A win-win in my book.
( The bay window is definitely my favorite part of the dining room, but I can’t take any credit for that since our only contribution to the window was having it cleaned! )
It’s amazing what a little paint and flooring can do! What do you guys think?
