So here is our Reading Room/Living Room which used to be our Dining room -
the staircase between the rooms -
and our dining room (used to be living room) - We arranged this room a ton of different ways, and this seems to be the most asethically pleasing as well as most functional. We shrunk the table down by removing the leaves and turned it on an angle.
And we happen to be the lucky recepients of my grandparents piano. It is currently on loan while my Anut and Uncle are out exploring the waters on their new boat. It has history and we are lucky to have it for now!
This is a piece of art my Mom and I created a few years ago -
Before the swap, we truly only used the dining room twice a year and I think the only lovin' the living room received was when great grandpa and grandma would visit. So as you can see, I am a firm believer in making the rooms in your house fit your family. Take a living room for instance...hey that can be a dining room, a den, a playroom...the possibilities are whatever fits your house and your family best!
