I saw something on Pinterest the other day that totally caught my eye. When I got to watch the home decorating shows back in the day, I was always drawn to the half built-in dining area. You know, sort of like restaurant furniture, where the bench seat is built into a corner, and then there's chairs on the other side of the table? Anyway, it would have fit into the old house, but there's really no 'corner' to start from in our dining area now. I suppose we could still do the bench along one side, and then chairs on the other?
