Then you go up a few stairs where there’s a master bedroom and….oops…the hell happened to the other bedrooms? Ok, there’s a cozy kitchen and nice sized living room. So, for my virtual daydream, I went on a(n internet) quest to find decent splanch renovations. No, I can’t afford another house, I’m just thinking. For awhile now I’ve been thinking about the next project.I had a lot of fun polling readers on my blog for their advice on different aspects of the room makeover, like what dining room table to buy.I took their advice sometimes, and other times I ignored it!Even though ball-and-claw-foot dining tables were in vogue during the reign of King Edward VII, you may not view a similar table as quite so stylish today.But you can update an old ball-and-claw-foot oak table to bring it into a "new age" of designer glory.
Nothing is going to make this type of architecture any less hideous. Actually, historians credit Frank Lloyd Wright as the inventor of the split level. Wright has been turning in his grave since vinyl siding and shutters started showing up on these homes. After 2 historic restorations, I just want to have fun! PS: No offense meant to anyone who lives in a splanch. I ignored them when they said I should just add a nice metal pail to store birdseed for my boyfriend's bird feeders, and instead embarked on an overly long and complex project to build a container with a decorative wood front.That was definitely a setback, because it took me months to finish and delayed me getting to call this room "done"!Naomi's dining room was cramped, carpeted and questionably colored.After removing the most unsightly elements when she first moved in, she let the room stay as it was while updating other parts of the home.
