The ranch may be large, but our house here is small.
That means I try to get the most out of every little nook and cranny. You might notice baskets under my Swedish bench.
(Note to readers: This post was written before the one about my new chalk board that now sits on this wall. To see what this room looks like now, click here.
Adding the Swedish bench to the room, made it more usable.
Don’t look too closely at the pine floors, they have been antiqued by our collie. At some point, I may paint them white, we’ll see.
Flexibility is important in a small space, and that is why the drop leaf table makes so much sense. We can make it bigger when we need to, but otherwise, we keep one side down, to make it easier to walk by.
Because the table is so large when both leaves are up, 60 inches I believe, we needed a way to serve food to everyone around the table.
So I bought this darling lazy Susan so everyone could serve himself easily. But when the weather is glorious, you won’t find us in here. This table is just the back-up table used only when it’s too hot, cold, windy, or damp to eat outdoors.
It may be a ranch, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty, n’est pas?
