After only using the dining table 2 or 3 times since we moved into the house, I decided that our formal dining room was now not only ugly, but useless as well. lol In an attempt to improve to look and function of the room, I rearranged the furniture.
The dining room table is now a cute little bistro table tucked up against the stairs.
The rest of the room is open in the middle. Oreo loves running in there and rolling around on the rug. He's not used to having to much room to play. And, this way, I get to have our cool apothecary media unit out on display (pictured below).
