staging the dining room.

The living room and dining room are really just one long open room in this space.  The living room was just about ready to go when I moved in, as was the dining by proxy.  The light fixture was pretty dated and that took a little head scratching and a few trips to Home Depot to change out (more about that here) with a vintage glass shade I’ve had for years.

The only purchase I made for this room was a rug to keep my old chairs and table from scratching the floor. I’ll be honest, I NEVER use the dining room for eating because the couch is so much more comfortable and way closer to the TV so scratching the floor wasn’t really that big of a worry.  I found a cheap, 4×6, Jute rug on Overstock that was just the ticket.

Once that was done, the rest was just fun.  I know I sound like a broken record, but nothing makes me happier than dressing up a blank space…
