This is a very old picture of my Dining room. The walls are now a nice vanilla cream color and we replaced the icky light fixture... but you can see where the floor is different on the left hand side. That's' where there used to be stairs to the basement (there will be a post some day about fixing the discontinued hardwood flooring...but it has still not been fixed so that post will not happen today).
I've finished the rest of this post with lots and lots of pics.
As a fun side note...Hubby decided that this stage made for a better "Smoochin Booth" than a Pantry. :)
