As you’ve probably noticed we don’t have a separate living and dining room, it’s one large beautiful great room. I would think in the early 1800’s this was a very uncommon layout for a house but I am certainly grateful the Woodmen family made this decision. The woodwork in this room is pretty spectacular with practically floor to ceiling American Chestnut.

With that said, figuring out the layout in this room was quite the challenge. We decided to make zones for the living and dining rooms and split the space with an entryway table. The hunt for a perfect entryway table was pretty difficult, most didn’t have enough impact or they were perfect but way above our budget. We came across the annual yard sale from our friend “The Trash Queen“, she’s got an amazing antique store in town and occasionally hosts a yard sale full of interesting pieces. Take a look at this beautiful antique sewing machine with added vintage re-purposed table top. Voilà, we now have a beautiful entryway table that’s unique, eye-catching and under $150!!! This table is one of my favorite pieces for the great room and fits perfectly under the new chandelier. When you walk into the main entrance through the grand double doors and enter the great room, you’ll be transferred back in time.
