So I've come to a decision...drumroll please... I will not be having a dining room going forward. For our family, it is truly a wasted space. And since we're moving, now is the time to make the change. Seriously, as we speak my dining room furniture is on my beloved craigslist. (Yep, that was a shameless sales pitch.) I'm not exactly sure what I'll do since most dwellings have a dedicated dining room. Buckle up and join me for the journey. Here are a few ideas from some of my peeps:
Like myself, Jacki had the full blown table for ten, complete with china cabinet and buffet, in her last house.

We all know Jacki's a trendsetter... Check out what her friend Kelly did with her formerly unused formal space.

Jacki's sister-in-law followed suit and turned her dining room into a place where her kids can do homework and they can enjoy displaying books and other family treasures.

I love the idea of turning the formal dining room into a home office. You can still use it for dining on those special occasions.

I love all these ideas! Stay tuned to see what I end up doing at my next home...
