|Play Kitchen in our Dining Room|
The dining room looks totally different without the play kitchen in there.

And if you're the observant type, you'll notice more things missing from the dining room. The chandelier shade was taken down. I didn't want viewers to think it was permanent. I used it to cover the chandelier I didn't like. Maybe someone else likes the chandelier and not the shade.

|Red Chairs back in 2012|
|Red Chairs 2014|
The red chairs have had many homes. They were chairs that went with the table I have currently in the kitchen, and were from my childhood. I made cushions out of pillows for them back in 2009. They've always lived behind the couch, but when I moved the sofa table to the foyer, they were re-homed to the dining room.
There use to be a table behind it that I kept the boys' toys on. Even though it was skinny, it took away the feeling of space. It feels bigger now.
And that table was moved to the upstairs bathroom!
That bathroom is bigger than you expect. It's big enough to put a table in there!
The table use to be my foyer table. When I moved the sofa table to the foyer after its makeover, I moved the foyer table to the living room.

While I was up there, I de-cluttered the toy shelves.
To me, it's not functional, but magazines do it all the time.
And if I've caught you off guard... we're moving! I made a tab on here for how we are selling our house. Last year we bought a lot in our current neighborhood. The deal was too good to pass up. How everything lined up and worked out was definitely through God's hands. Even if we didn't build on it, we could turn around and sell it.
We are in the process of selling our house and then we will begin building our new one. The new house will be for both my family and my parents. Once we have moved them in, we will work on selling their house (also, in the same neighborhood.) Currently, we are in the very beginning phase of design. We have a budget to stick with and that is currently guiding us. I'm very excited. I will definitely be keeping you up to date on each process. May 2014 be a great year!
