What isn't pretty is the builder grade light fixture and the lack of decorating.
We recently purchased a new (to us) dining room set that has helped the room tremendously. This didn't solve the lack of decor problems, but it gave us a roomier table for meals and did make it look like a dining room for "grown ups."
This weekend, I purchased a painter's drop cloth for the sole purpose of creating these knock-off curtains in my dining room. I am still searching for a long enough curtain rod that isn't too expensive.
I also have some additional wall decor in the works- something that will only cost me the price of the frames. I am excited about how this room is finally taking shape!
