I love this Before & After because of its absolute simplicity. This dining room acts as a pass through room in my house. You have to move through it to get from the living room to the kitchen. Even though we kept the furniture in it to a bare minimum (there is ONLY a table and chairs), it still felt stuffy and crowded. Want to see what we changed that did the trick?

My husband gets full credit for this re-arrangement in our dining room. By removing two of the chairs with backs and replacing it with a farmhouse-style bench, the three rooms flow seamlessly from one to the next! It was an easy way to make the room more airy and inviting.
