Below, you can see it in our last home's eat-in kitchen/living room. We learned to add a leaf or two and expand into the front hallway for company.
The spray-painted chandelier needed shades to soften the light. A dimmer switch helped the rest of the room fade away during mealtime. Casters moved the table closer for kitchen prep and farther away for mopping.
Our new house doesn't have a breakfast nook, so we placed the same table in the corner for writing.
In our first apartment, we skirted the table and ate in the corner of our living room. If you don't have a chandelier, try a tall candlestick lamp for soft lighting.
Here, I've rolled the table into the entryway. I unearthed our original velour tablecloth. Now we can serve an additional 5 guests next to our larger dining table.
