small dining room redesigned

For this redesign, I'll let the pictures do most of the talking...what fun...and only took an hour or so for this small dining room!

AFTER... the pics on the wall are now at eye level and no longer compete with the chandelier...

the table is no longer angled, so the space flows a little better...

cute little arrangement...but where's the thermostat? let's look closer...

you guessed it! behind the vase on the red shelf!! I was particularly proud of that little cover-up :-)

If you enjoyed these pics and would like to see some more of my redesigns, read here.

  3. LOVE the thermostat cover-up! I'm always looking for little ways to cover-up "architectural uglies." :-)

  5. I love what you did! I swear I am so clueless I didn't even notice the problem with the pictures and the chandelier until you fixed it. Looks great! As usual. :o)
