I was so drawn to this image and the idea of making it happen in my dining room, I could barely concentrate the rest of the day. I even emailed the picture to my husband and said something like "How cool with this be?". He responds "I like it". So I reply with a "Want me to make it happen?" and he quickly shoots back, "How much will it cost?". Shoot, daydream over!
Here a a few other inspiring banquettes.
My husband is so easy going and accommodating, that I could probably talk him into letting me go forward with it. Fortunately for our bank account, I have more sense than that. I kindly explained to him that this is going to be an expensive project and will involve the following:
new table or (tables) +
having the lights moved +
a very large, custom built banquet with custom upholstery =
Also, you might remember from this post, my idea about adding a sliding barn door to the wall in the dining room, to separate the kitchen/dining room from the family room. With my latest idea, this would not be possible. Good thing I have been dragging my feet on that idea. So for now, I'll just file both of these ideas away in my "someday" file. In the meantime, I'm going to bring myself back to reality and enjoy my home just the way it is.
Just for fun, what do you think, sliding barn door or built-in banquet? Done any daydreaming lately?
