I might have mentioned we are blocking off an archway between the dining room and entry hallway. The reason is to increase our storage space and add a place to hang coats.
Some people love "open concept" houses, but I'm not such a fan after living without many walls for over 6 years now.
Even before we bought the house, I knew I would want that archway blocked off.
My idea is to put a china cabinet on the dining-room-side...sort of like this, but with doors instead of drawers as it will not be very deep.

Of course I gave the cabinetry guys lots and lots of magazine pictures while trying to explain my "vision" of how each side would function.
I figured a picture is worth a thousand words...but you can believe I gave them the thousand words too -- just in case!
Despite the pictures and words, I really don't have much confidence that it will turn out exactly as I'm expecting! And I've made peace with that...really, I have. Three weeks to wait and then we'll see. Fingers crossed.
Thanks for dropping by!
