Here is the first after. This is the view from our foyer area. I am not thrilled with how the table is decorated, but wanted to share the progress with the newly installed light, mirror, and drapes.
This view is from the corner near the window.
This view is from the corner closest to the kitchen looking into the room.
This view is similar to the view above, but it is from the entryway in the kitchen rather than the corner.
This view is from the corner by the window closer to the entry door.
This below view is from the center of the window.All and all, I am very pleased with how the dining room is shaping up. I still need to figure out a few more wall accessories. I am thinking of hanging some white plates on the wall just to the left of the entryway that leads into the kitchen (see first pic on the left hand side where the wall is blank). Outside of that, I am not sure if I really need to have items flanking the china cabinet. I am generally of the thinking "less is more", but am open to suggestions.
Also, let me know how you decorate your table top. I like having a table cloth on the table most of the time because I like how it protects the table top from dust. Although, I am thinking of getting ambitious, and doing something else. Suggestions are always welcomed.
