That’s quite the little diddy.
Lydia: Hi David.
David: How are you?
Eddy: So this is it.
David: Very cool so its’ like a family room.
Lydia: We wanted to make this place into a dining room because when we have dinners and stuff we end up standing around the Island and sitting over here so I figured this would be a good way to make this into a new room.
David: Absolutely so really dining and eating and here on the table and socializing with your families is very important it’s a part of your life.
Lydia: And it comes with a big family.
Eddy: When they come over it’s about 10 to 12 people.
David: Table wise do you want expandable or you just want one massive table because the room can handle it.
David: The room can handle a good 8 foot table.
Lydia: But we’re definitely thinking 12-seater.
David: Alright let’s see.
Lydia: This is our inspiration and the colors.
David: Oh the actual box is your inspiration.
Lydia: That’s for starters we have some things inside but we’ve kind of like these blues and these greens for the paint possibly.
David: I love it.
Eddy: I like the darker colors.
Eddy: Like these chocolate colors.
Lydia: I’m metal smith and I would like to…
David: You are, really.
Lydia: But I like maybe another shelf here just put my artwork.

David: This is definitely unique makeover. It’s kind of the first time that I’ve taken a living room or a family room and change it into a dining room and when you’re designing a dining room be conscious of your space a lot of people find it an amazing table and they bring it at home and it’s enormous.

Everyone did such a great job Ian and Danielle worked so hard on the fire place. She tiled and painted and he built. That’s fantastic.
David: It’s is sparkly. We have a lot of contemporary design going with that sparkle and then we have that great piece of driftwood and we built shells specifically for all of your artwork.
Lydia: I can’t believe it all fits.
David: I can’t believe whether you had so much and you guys got 2 pieces of artwork. I wanted to do something very abstract but also kind of representing rain or grass or something but not going literal with it.
David: You have the buffet over here but also gave you a bar over there. I’m sure you guys have like trays and trays of food that you need to put some place right.
Lydia: This is just wonderful.
