As I was laying in bed last night, I got to thinking about how I would decorate our new rental home. I know, we aren't moving for another month and a half... what can I say? I like to plan ahead. Just ask the fiance! I drive him nuts with all of my plans :)
In the new house, there is a formal dining room which is really nice BUT we hardly ever sit at our table to eat. It seems like such a waste to use the entire room for just the table. I need some ideas of how to incorporate other functional furniture pieces such as a desk into the room. I need this room to be multi-functional!
This is the dining room. This picture came from the rental advertisement, so this is obviously a previous renter's things. Not the best pic.. But it's all I've got right now! The wall that is not shown is an entry way into the den.
This is not our exact set, but it is very similar. As you can see, it's a very small table. I just can't see using the whole room to only house this baby.
This is the exact desk that we have. Since it is a small home, I don't think there will be room for our desk in the guest bedroom which is where we have it in our current apartment.
Any ideas on how to incorporate both of these items into the room without it looking junky or a hodge-podge of furniture?? All ideas would be greatly appreciated!
