advice and inspiration from Shannon at 8foot6, here is what I managed to throw around in the 30 minutes before I had to go get Will from school. I did move the big sideboard to the dining room and I think I like it - it is tight to open with the table there, but it does fill the room nicely. I also just pushed back the chairs into the little nook - not sure if I like that or not. I would love a built-in window seat there... I was thinking maybe a low bench where the poofs are might work to tie the seating areas together more? The couch wouldn't fit on that side because of the white cabinet and the door swinging in to the room, I tried.
Feedback? Shannon? Blake? Mum? And does everyone love my vinyl table cloth? Classy AND practical...oh yeah. HA.
