Moving Around... and Around

Still trying to make this house work over here. Have moved everything all over the place until my back is sore and my husband grumpy... but I think this is going to work. Unless we do the remodel in which case it will all change again. The dining room is in the old living room, far away from the kitchen, but... oh well. No farther away than if we were eating outside on the patio... not that big a deal. Here is the new dining room, will share the living room another day. Assuming we keep this arrangement, I'll get a new chandelier instead of the track lighting and figure out a better placement of things... all in good time. I have green fabric to re-cover the chairs with... again, all in good time.

The wall hanging is one of my grandmother's most impressive works of art. This one was her answer to the book 1984 and it took her about 10 years to complete. It is an image of her back yard at her old house in Natick, MA. A real treasure.

I like that use of space a lot better! The table and chairs fit it much better than the sectional!

I agree. The sectional in that room was making me feel claustrophobic. The funny thing is, I wanted to do this a year ago but everyone said oh no, it's too far from the kitchen. I don't really mind though, at least not yet.
