Last week I planned out the sitting room, this week it's all about the dining room. The basic layout is for open plan views between the living room, dining room and kitchen. There is no way that it staying, so those big central gaps will be blocked in to just leave the doorways. On the kitchen wall I'm putting a serving hatch in because, well, the demise of the serving hatch has been a sorry loss to us all.

✩ Carpet. I've got a brown one with a little pattern in it from Poppets Dolly Bits.
✩ Curtain Pole.
✩ Wallpaper. My plan is to use wallpaper on the upper halves of the walls, then wood cladding on the bottom half.
|I've bought this wallpaper from mmminiatures on eBay.|
✩ Dining Table and Chairs. Ideally I'm looking for either a drop leaf or extending table.
✩ Sideboard. To go under the serving hatch.
✩ Fruit Bowl.
✩ Light Fitting. I love those low orange glass shades! I think I might try a mini fish bowl and some glass paint to make my own.
✩ Sunburst Clock.

✩ Record Player.
✩ Records. The kids' will keep theirs in their own rooms, so this will be the home of mum and dad's record collection. Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Val Doonican, other crooners with a love of knitwear...
✩ Spider Plant.
