Here’s what the dining room/home office looked like before I started:

I am content with our dining room/home office for now, though I am planning to move the home office back into the smallest bedroom, which my oldest daughter now occupies.  She had been asking for her own room since before her birthday this past November, so we moved the home office into the dining room in January to accommodate her.  But, I miss having a separate home office, so when I come to the bedrooms’ makeovers, I plan to change it back then and she can move in with her little brother and sister.  Stay tuned for the next makeover, the living room!
