The dining room part of the big family room is finished, there hasn’t really been that much of a transformation, but we have done a few bits worth mentioning.
The before of the dining room was too dark for us and the colour actually gave you a bit of a headache, we opened up the space by knocking a wall down to create an open plan room including the kitchen, snug, dining room and a playroom.
Things are moving again! Sometimes you have the motivation and sometimes you don’t! But after a busy summer, the motivation is back!
