You Won’t Believe What This Boring Dining Room Was Transformed Into

The dining room is a place where real socialization should take place as fuller bellies tend to have more room for digesting social information. Unfortunately, most of our dining rooms are just plain rooms with a single oval table and hard backed chairs that provide little room for prolonged discussion and comfort. We have to opt towards the living room in order to escape the stiffness of the room.

This family was facing similar problems in the dining room, so they decided to mix things up a little. Once they were done with it, the room no longer gave a feeling of boredom, rather it gave vibes of awesomeness.

Before the commencement of the project. One can easily detect the countless boring breakfasts and dinners done on the table. The chairs are too plain and old fashioned.

Here is the fantastic finished look! Matching squashy cushions and color schemes made it easy-to-the-eye. Now, you can have post-dinner conversations right here while enjoying the after-meal coffee.

    While I admire your craftsmanship, this design is horrible. I’d panic being seated as a captive of the aisle sitter. Or maybe that’s the point? To incarcerate smaller children for dinner? But they’re only that small for a few years. Whatever you want man, your children are your property after all. You impound them however you see fit.

    Looks okay but it wouldn’t be comfortable for very long. Thin foam on plywood and no place to lean back.
