A little bit of this & that but always with heart.
Your Hubby sounds very supportive of you by offering to redo your dining room. I think since he offered you should take him up on it. Especially since the room is not used that much as its intended purpose.
I think if you have a large family and that is the only gathering space for those special times I would think long about doing it but if not go for it,especially if your husband suggested the idea. My husband is like that and wants me to be happy so he supports my hobby. Pam
I think you should keep your dining room. The fact that you are hesitant to give it up tells me you should keep it as a dining room. Invest part of the money and time to make your current office/studio more efficient. I gave up the guest room so that I could put my studio in here. Great decision on my part. But it wasn't my dining room. Good luck with the decision. Looking forward to hearing what you do.
I love comments and constructive critiques, just be kind, this is just for fun after all.
