I loved how this space looked. I didn't love that it never got used. Who wants to feed a toddler on carpet and white upholstered chairs (that you can't afford to recover). Not me, so much.
Seriously, we ate in here a couple times a year. It was also a much too convenient place to keep my laptop plugged in so I could "quickly" check email, blogs, coupon sites etc.
Our home is just right for us...but I need to make use of every single inch of it!
So, we decided to turn it into a playroom.
It is still a work in progress...but I love that it gets used so much! We do school time in here some days, and Wook loves to play in here and still be close to where all the action is.
