We put our house on the market!  It has been a wild ride and I hope some wonderful person falls in love with it, just like we did.  Prior to putting the house on the market, I went into full on staging mode.  I eliminated clutter and made some small changes in the dining room that led to drastic results.

As with all rooms in my house, the light fixture was atrocious.  It was a broken eyesore.  My delightful in-laws (wink, wink) came down and helped us change out the light fixture, which made a huge difference aesthetically and added (according to my very smart father in-law) 75% more light.  All that my artistic self knows, is that it looks and feels better.  The fixture is from Home Depot and was only $150.  I think it was well worth it and I wish I replaced it long before now!
I am very grateful my Mom and Dad gave us their old dining room table.  I love the walnut and we have had a place to sit for 5 years, which I really appreciate!  However, the chairs were a bit big for this space and they were not in great shape.  In fact, what prompted this mini-makeover is one of the chairs collapsed while my husband was sitting down at the table.  I am a sucker for a ghost chair.  We already had one, so we ordered 3 more on Amazon, and bam… the room felt instantly bigger!  If you ever need seating in a small space these are my go-to!  They look like glass slippers and they are actually quite comfortable.

All in all, I would say this mini-makeover made the room feel bigger and I think this room has reached its potential!
