Most of us are spending more times in our homes than ever before and using them in ways we didn't imagine. Dining Rooms are more for just eating now - they serve at work desks, school rooms, crafting spaces and so much more. I know they do at my house. Today I want to share with you a few ways to think outside the box on how you use your dining room furniture.
This drop leaf table technically doesn't even need to be used in the dining room. I use one in my sewing room because I can fold down the sides to free up space when I'm not sewing. Perfect if you need a temporary desk. Because it folds on both sides you can use as much or as little of the table as you need.
I'll let you in a on a little secret - I have 3 buffets or sideboards in my dining room. The largest holds traditional dining room items such as china, crystal, table clothes, etc. The other two have been added overtime to hold all my art supplies. I often use the dining room table to paint or draw or craft. The extra storage is great so that it looks less like an art studio and more like an eating space when dinner time rolls around. As the school year starts up online a lovely buffet can hold all those school and craft supplies out of sight, but in easy reach.
Both of these items are available from my booth at Black Barrel Vintage Co.
