Here's one from the hallway side.
That wall down at the end with the OSB plywood will be bricked. Right now the wall is open where it runs into the beam down there, but the brick wall will run into that beam.
Once we decide on lights to go over our now comfortably positioned table, we can call the plasterer and have him come patch up our many holes.
We're down to two ideas for lighting. Using a 3 light stained glass chandeleir light over the table; something a little more feminine and whimsical against the rough wood and brick, but still iron and aged to work with it. Like these.
Or 2 or 3 downward hanging pendant lights. It would give off more light. I like this one.
Anyone have any ideas?
