Our dining area is going to look very similar to this one. We will have built-in bench seating on one side and chairs on the other sides. The color scheme will be the same as in the living room since the rooms are open to one another. I can totally picture a table just like this one in that space. How cute is the chalk board paint on top of it?! How fun for the kids…and us. I can already see lots of plumbing diagrams and sewing ideas being drawn on top.
