Should it stay or go?
Hi all - We just settled with the sellers of our new house and will be moving in 2 months! I am going to apologize in advance because you will be hearing a lot from me. The house is a 1942 colonial revival. My question today is with regards to the little built in in the dining room. We don't have the money right now, and won't have it for several years at least, to redo the much needed kitchen upgrade. However, the kitchen is very solid and has high quality albeit old cabinetry but I can live with it. We are planning a pass through from the kitchen to the dining room to open them up to each other. The pass through will also serve as a breakfast bar with stools on the kitchen side.
As you can see in the attached picture there is this little built in in the dining room. It is on the same wall as the pass through. I could try to move it to the other corner, leave it, or remove it entirely. If I leave it or move should I get rid of the scalloping? I am torn. It is kind of cute but then it's also kind of cute and not exactly what I have planned for the casual elegance dining room. Also this is the photo from the listing. The room will be painted, a new light fixture and drapes will be added. Don't let the peach paint get in the way.
