If it ain't broke...

Change it! 

Our dining room was done.  Decorated.  Window treatments and all. 

The only problem?  In 5 years, we NEVER used our dining room table.  NEVER.  Our kitchen table is big enough to seat all of us.  Even if Mom and Dad come over for a "feast" as Olivia calls it.  She loves a feast.  And feast to her can be hotdogs and chips as long as everyone sits at the table together.

So, we listed our table on Craigslist and within 10 minutes had a buyer!  Woo hoo.  Thank you, Dad, for lifting it into their truck!

Now, the fun begins.  We used the cash made from the dining room to purchase Billy bookcases from IKEA.  This is going to become a room with a wall of built in bookshelves and a smaller, round table.  Which I still need to find.  Picture a room to sit, read, play boardgames... do homework... put a puzzle together...

Right now the room looks like this:

Stayed tuned!  And thanks, Chad, for agreeing to this project!


  1. Can't wait to see how it turns out--the dining room was so pretty, but I think this will be even better...

  2. I too can hardly wait to see the finished room. Great idea and you have such good decorating ideas Aubrey. Want to come to WI and help me out?
