sun-drenched dining room:)

Tanya List

The amount of sunlight that this new house brings in was the #2 reason for getting this house, #1 being on the water of course…:) We are probably going to save a ton of money, simply because we don’t need the lights on during the day its soooo bright!  The room living room/dinning room is starting to come together.  Still in need of an actual light fixture in the living room and a real gas fireplace (we were too late to get a gas line this year, we have to wait until the spring).  My aunt karen however lives down the street and she had an extra electric fireplace so we scooped it up for the winter:)

Dinning table made from an old door that i found while on a run in the city a few years back.  Ry cut all the cedar and i hammered every single dint in the table……i had a really wicked headache by the end…..but all i can say is that it’s one of my favourite pieces in the house.  In in total cost about $50 and about 4 hours to make.
