New dining room

This was our dining area before.

Then we got the piano, and our high table and chairs no longer fit. Wanting more space and a better profile for the piano, we sold our table on craigslist and put the money toward a new one. Still, it was a bit of a spurge but it gets as small as 18 inches wide with both leaves down and gets up to regular size with the leaves up. Plus, It has red legs that match with our curtains and other decor. The matching chairs were 100 each!
They are beautiful but I just couldn't do it. So I bought a cheap set and painted them red. The piano bench can serve as seating for the other side. Its coming together pretty well.

Its coming together pretty well. A little bit eclectic but it works for us!
Just a little look into our new dining room.

Coming up....the new kitchen.


  1. Pretty Margo! Look like you have been doing a lot of painting.

  2. I love what you have done. I like the new light fixture and the white walls with the red. Your drop leaf table is a great space saver. Now Neil can sit down and play dinner music while people are eating. Grandma B.

  3. I just love red and yellow ! You did a good job and I love the drop down leaves.

  4. Gorgeous job! It's so warm and inviting. Thanks for linking up to the DIY Show Off. ;) Nice to "meet" you!

    Happy Fall!
