There are not many opportunities to showcase lighting in our little bungalow and the dining area is the only common area to do this. Technically we have an "eat in" kitchen so a huge dramatic light was out of the question as it would interfere with sight lines to the family room and something too simple would be a lost opportunity.
Here is how our dining renovation unfolded
|Original eating area on the day of walk through. Three major issues included the overhead cabinetry, horrid light fixture and the banister. How on earth we could figure out the perimeter of the dining area without it is beyond me.. haha|
|The light fixture began to grow on me through the reno and I thought we could update it a bit by spray painting it black. It was definitely a temporary fix until we could find a better light.|
And finally the new light!
|Purchased at Home Depot (I'm still surprised at this as we visited many lighting stores in the city)|
|New flooring and the removal of the banister makes the space flow nicely|
|Bye bye overhead cabinetry, you are not missed.|
|A little bit of trim along the peninsula goes a long way|
|We are loving the new space and this final check makes this area done like dinner.|
Thanks for stopping by!
