I have a dining room

The installers arrived at 9:30 am Monday morning and their work was done at about 6:30 Wednesday evening. 3 full days of noise and dust and mess but I could not be happier with the results. I see a lot of dusting in my future the next few weeks. We still have some furniture to move back into place and I am on the hunt for a buffet. I can hardly wait to begin doing tablescapes in our new dining room and be able to leave them up to enjoy!

WooooHooo!! I'm echoing Marlene.. I'm so happy for you.
What an amazing transformation and great color choice for the floors. Your dining room set looks wonderful and looks so happy in it's new space and is now just waiting for the additon of a new hutch!
I've gone through many major renovations, and I know how hard it is going through such a mess with everything all over, and the dust everywhere, but when
everything is cleaned and put into place...it's so worth it.
Now all you have to do is enjoy..and Happy Tablescaping!

Kath, it looks great!! I'm sure you are glad to have the mess over with and now you can just enjoy the decorating!!

The dining room set looks fabulous, and I really love those side chairs in the corners.

Have fun hunting for your hutch/buffet and looking forward to your future tablescapes.

What I love, love even more in this room (besides your new floors, maxi) is there is 'no clutter'...it's just simple, downright beautiful...the prints on the wall, the side chairs, the lamp, the area rug & esp your table/chairs! (even the vase of flowers centered on the dining table) Gorgeous! Just needed to add that after looking at your pics again! Jeanne S.

RE: I have a dining room

Well, you had me really inspired to go ahead and have mine done...till you mentioned DUST. LOL.

Seriously tho, those floors are gorgeous and looking at them makes me think I wouldn't miss carpeting as much as I was afraid I would. I bet you are so happy with how things look! (except for the dust. Want to borrow Harry and Ethel? They'd love it.)

hugs, Karen

Great room. One suggestion would be a larger rug under the table.
