a revamped dining room

Ok keep in mind that there is still SO much to do in this room. I'm really wanting to create a faux paneled wall with a chair rail, the bench is getting a redo soon and a new pad, and the dining table will move onto a better home as I search for something else white and inexpensive.

That being said, this really is a huge 'function' area for us. Basically J gets ready to walk out the door from here in the morning and there are lots of things to gather up and shoes to put on while I make breakfast.

Here's the before, I even left a dustbunny on the floor for you guys:

Well after a morning of reading and rereading IKEA directions, we have a new shoe cabinet and a more organized 'station':

This is perfect for us, because there's no chance the dog will ever attack my shoes again. Also, there's a handy small drawer for all J's things. Loose golf tees, small flashlight, wallets, etc.

And since I'm a girl who changes my mind a LOT, here's what it looked like yesterday:

and today:
