This is the view from our living room.
We’ve stuck with our dining table, but we keep going back and forth on it. I still vote round table. We removed the rugs from the dining room and living room. They were beautiful but didn’t match. They are being store at The Mister’s parent’s home. We placed two tables, one in each corner, to create some balance and provide storage. The fabric covering the tables are IKEA curtains I purchased but we decided against using. I have left them “draping” as I don’t want to spend the time making them tailored. We’ve never tripped on them as the fabric is usually tucked/pushed/shoved to the side of the table and out of our way. If they become a more permanent fix then I’ll change the fabric and make it more tailored. However, we believe we have found the answer to our storage problem. No, it’s not built ins. We decided to place those funds elsewhere.

Call your friends and family, I’ve kept a plant alive for a few months. Yes, I’m going to count it. I, too, am impressed and excited about it.
This is the view if you are going to sit at the dining table, which is unlikely as I don’t have dinner parties. I’m getting there. However, I will allow you to take a moment and respect my napkins because I made them. Not all of them. I made the horse printed ones. Remember, we only use cloth napkins
