From Spare Room to Dining Room: An Unexpected Transformation!

created at: 08/01/2011

This tiny space started out as a closed balcony then morphed into a bedroom then morphed again into a stunning, light-filled dining room!  Don’t believe me?  Check out the ‘after’ below!     

Sibylle Roessler from the blog Funky Time sent over a link to her dining room makeover and let’s just say I was blown away!  The space started out as a closed balcony, which means it had windows on the inside that led to the living room – an awkward feature for a bedroom (which is what the previous tenants had used the space for).  With a desire to eke out as much storage as possible, Sibylle turned these windows into open shelving instead!  A brilliant solution that proved to be as beautiful as it was practical.

This dining room makeover is full of similarly clever design choices and solutions (and even sports a cute DIY mason jar chandelier that Sibylle made herself), so be sure to check out the full story – and more pics – over on Funky Time!
