So action was and has been called for...to change our home to suit me and hubbys needs.....first of all we changed the snug into a breakfast room.....(previous posting). Then we were left with a dining room with a large oval table in it, (first piccy is of previous table/dining room) which wasn't being used etc....also the room where it is has just become an access route...so again me and hubby sat back and thought...aha!! we need a smaller table just for four......decent size enough for friends etc for dinner but small enough for me and hubby to sit. (As and when family come to tea/dinner the table in the new room will be utilized...we will pull it away from the wall and there is a centre leaf so it will sit 6/8 or 10 if need be....maybe a little cosy but hey thats the fun of it.)
So this last weekend we had a redo of the old dining room and we now have a lovely 2nd lounge with a cute round table and four rattan chairs situated in the alcove.....in truth I was absolutely sick of the way I was doing our home...it was becoming stiff and pompous...We needed to make it more relaxed hence the rattan dining chairs and pads instead of the upright wheatsheaf chairs.
Our much loved knole sofa....which for the past few years has been no more than a furniture decoration...(it used to sit in the alcove where the round table is now)......it was hardly ever sat on but now.....hey woohoo! it has a new lease of life....hubby and I now have a lovely 2nd lounge.....I am one chuffed bunny and now the then once unloved room has now come to life and feels part of the home. As they say "change is as good as a rest".
