Dining Room Update

After looking through my draft posts I just realized I never gave you all an update on the status of the dining room window seat. I’m terrible.

With the appraisal this past week things got a little crazy and undocumented around here.  My apologies. The good news is that the bulk of the window seat is complete! Hooray!

check out the previous posts about the window seat here.

The top is on, stained and sealed as well as the hardware in place.

With the window seat complete, the dining room is nearly complete itself. Let us have a look way back at the dining room from few months ago…



And now back 4 years ago with a photo from the listing in the MLS when the house was for sale.

Dining Room Before


and now…





I would still like to change out that fan for a chandy, install some window cornise boxes, and add some more trim to the ceiling but it is done for the time being which means I can start moving on to other projects. Muuuahhhh (rubs hands together feverishly)

The bad news, as if you havent already noticed is the cushion for the window seat is nowhere near done. In fact I have made two trips to the fabric store only to leave empty handed the first time and with a bag full off unrelated crap the second time. Hmmph. I just couldn’t pull the trigger.

Whatcha think of the new window seat and the new dining room?
