The biggest change is that the dining room is finished!
The buffet is from a Craigslist seller called YesterYears Treasures. He takes older pieces of furniture, updates them and then sells them on Craigslist. The buffet is perfect and looks like it was made for the dining room.
The rug is an indoor-outdoor rug from Crate and Barrel called Savannah Cane that looks just like a natural weave. It's perfect for a dining room, as if any food falls on it, it can just be taken outside and hosed down.
The former dining room now study/ office is also looking a little more put together.
So just as a reminder, here is how the two spaces once looked.
And here they are today.
The only thing we are now looking for is a desk for the space where the Christmas Tree is currently sitting. The little desk that is currently next to the pine cabinet will go. And eventually the two armchairs need to be recovered, as they have a few rips and tears.
