So, we added curtains! I got this idea from a picture that showed curtains being hung on the bottom 2/3rds of a window. It still lets light in but I don't have to see the unwanted part.
Only problem was the discounted panels I found, turned purple when the light came through!
I chose the wrong type of curtain for the job I wanted it to do. It was an easy fix. Lowes had a double curtain rod that I could hang a blackout curtain on one rod and the pretty curtain on the other rod.
I also got the idea of putting corks in with the candles.
Next up might be changing the candles out for LED candles that either have a timer or remote control. How cool would that be? I really would like for the sconces to produce light.

Yep, I think so!
It's hard keeping the dining room table clear. I used it as my work bench when we first moved in, and now it's a great spot to drop off the mail as you make your way to the kitchen. All I can do is try!
