I usually hate built in dining room sets but this is beautiful! It doesn't look cheesy at all. You could easily pin up the lights and remove the table and bench to use it as an additional seating area for parties and family gatherings.
I am freaking out! For less than $50 I can get rid of my oak cabinets in my kitchen and bathrooms! This is a great tutorial on how to gel stain your cabinets. Before this I thought my only option was to paint the cabinets white, but now I'm excited that I can have the espresso cabinets I crave. Yay! Yay! Yay! ::happy dancing::
