Since I took over both the family room and the 2nd bedroom for my quilting - we needed somewhere other than the floor for visitors to sleep. We decided to take the entire living/dining room area and create one large living room space and add a really NICE sleeper sofa and coffee table from Ethan Allen which arrived today.
Here's a view of the entire room - I know our older stuff is dark but we're not going to change it again right now.
I'm not completely crazy about how the room looks but it will do for now - it is cozy.
By the way, did you notice the bubble wrapped light fixture over the ottoman?? We've ordered a ceiling fan to put in that spot but since this was the dining room - - the light that's here hangs really low - Keith keeps hitting his head on it so I wrapped it to cushion the blows to his head!
