Redesigning our Dining Room


We've been spending a lot of time on our dining room lately. Before our housemates moved out it was used as the living room and was stuffed with two sofas, a fold-able table, big TV, shelves of board games, record player and general detritus including the kitchen bins and hoover (see above photo for a glimpse). I got a reputation for my 'atmospheric lighting': I had 4 strings of fairy lights and candles on every surface in an attempt to improve the ambience in the room. It functioned as a cosy lounge for a couple of years but is now ready to resume its life as a beautiful dining room. 

Both Tom and I work on the side as artists so having a flat work space available all the time is so useful. To unfold the table in this space before, I would have to move one of the sofas and block both the entrance to the kitchen and the way upstairs - not ideal, especially in a house of five people. Now we are two, we couldn't wait to empty this room and start from scratch. We ripped up the carpets and our blank canvas was ready. 

We picked up a beautiful wooden table from a little place in Chichester and The Most Beautiful Dresser from the car boot sale (I am going to have to write a post about how much I love car boot sales so you can truly understand). 

Updates on this room to follow - I can't wait to show you what it looks like now and it's not even finished yet! It's worth all the scrubbing and heavy lifting let me tell you.

  1. I get to share my thoughts through my own blog and in sermons most Sunday mornings. Those people who serve the congregation as Worship Weavers often have an opportunity to share their thoughts on things that matter. And people who are a part of a covenant group can talk with each other, Yet there is no good way for most of us to share our thoughts, opinions, musings, and meditations with the wider congregation.
