Sitting Pretty

Posted: July 13th, 2010 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

With the annual garage sale this year came some major changes in our furniture decor.

It was time to get rid of a couple unused and unloved pieces.

One might surprise you…our dining room table.

Now many of you might think of this as the family gathering place for homecooked meals and long chats about the day, and although we strive for both of those things — they usually happen at our kitchen bar area. So there was just no need for the table.

It was really only a launching area for Lucy to gaze at the birds and chipmunks…

Now it is a pretty sitting area that leaves a lot more room for running and playing.

And not to worry, Lucy still gets her look out point…

    No way! I can’t believe you got rid of that! I think one of the best things about you is that you really recognize what works for you and you go with it! I really like the way the window area looks. Way to go!

    Yay for you guys! I just totally turned my front sitting room into a dining room because I realized no one ever sits in there. It has been so much better for the entire flow of my house! We’ve eaten in there every night and already hosted our neighbors for dinner. Good for you for realizing that you could let the table go! :)
