The house retrospective: Day 10. The Dining Room

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

Our Dining Room is also known as “Gord’s Room” in honour of our friend Gord (hubby of Judy) who said, when he first saw the house right after we took possession, that this was his favourite room in the house. It’s also one of our favourite rooms, with the big windows, the gorgeous wood, and the fireplace.

Here’s what it looked like when we bought the place.  Yes, that is a built-in on the right side of the fireplace.  There probably would have originally been one on the other side too, but it’s long gone.

Then we moved in…slowly…

It kind of became a holding room for furniture we wanted to put into the pantry…

And then for the beds we were trying (desperately) to get rid of (the place came with 8 beds.  Do you know how hard it is to get rid of mattresses???)


Aside from getting rid of all the old furniture, putting in our own, changing out the light fixture, adding blinds, and fixing the windows so they open, this room hasn’t needed a lot.  Someday we will probably paint it, but for now it works just find.

Eventually the carpet will go so we can have hardwood (underneath the carpet is old linoleum which is probably asbestos laden).

All in all, a lovely place for entertaining in front of the fire!
