The dining nook turned out significantly better than I expected. I was thrilled to discover that the curtains I made for the old house fit here as well. The runner on the new table and all the old tin signs just work perfectly. Now we can start having people over for dinner.
The only remaining items here in the kitchen are the backordered (until March, oddly) barstools, decorating the tops of the two huge end cabinets, and installing the third pendant light. Not too bad!
