The dining table is painted plywood... though for a more durable finish, something like Corian would have been nice.

Looks like you have an aluminum strip behind the pull on the bench. Where did you get them?

Yes - those are Ikea Godmorgon bathroom vanities. We made a custom bench top and had cushions made to fit.

You're right - there were a few marks on the wall from scoring the tape with x-acto knifes. The graphic itself helps to hide the marks though.

There is an easier way! Have any image you want digitally printed on our stretch ceiling membrane and we install it for you! Moisture, dust, and mold proof and resistant, wipes clean easily, and it sits perfectly flat and smooth no matter the condition of your wall!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Family meals, homework, laptop sessions for work or fun, Lego building and craftmaking all happen on the kitchen table, which is attached to the kitchen island to form a long, central workspace. Across from this command post, Ikea cabinets make up a long banquette. The upholstered benches provide storage and seating.
1. Does the company use lots of buzzwords? Terms like "green," "natural," eco," "kind" and "all natural" are vague and unregulated, so anyone can use them to describe a product — no matter what's actually in it or how it was made. If there is nothing more to support the claim that a product is green beyond calling it green or putting a little leaf on the label, you'll need to look deeper.
David Duncan Livingston added this to Take Great Home Photos the Easy Way — 5 Tips From a Pro
5. Turn off your flash. Even basic point-and-shoot cameras are getting better at low-light situations, and your camera's flash will never be able to light a room well. With your camera on a steady tripod, you can have a long exposure and a natural-light feeling to the photo without getting a blurry shot. If you do not want the photo to be blurry during the long exposure, put the self-timer on and let the camera settle.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 4 Key Space-Planning Considerations
1. Determine function. Think carefully about what you want your new room to do and who will be using it. Ask yourself what will be required of the space. Will you be hosting events there? How many people should it hold? What are you and your family's limitations due to height, age and physical ability? Consider the ages of those in your household — how durable and accessible does everything need to be? Think about all the activities you'll be doing in the room — from paying bills to having family talks. "The more questions you ask and honestly answer will help you to ensure the space is planned properly and will function, as well as be aesthetically pleasing," says designer Marie Hebson. "Each individual prioritizes things differently. Be honest with yourself. Be flexible if you need to, so that your room can grow with your family."
Or maybe, you think, it's time to take up hard-core drinking ... in the basement ... in the dark ... if you even have a basement. If not, you find yourself relieved because you can't even imagine what a mess it would be if you did.I know this spiral of horror and despair, because I've been down it almost every summer since I became a mother and certainly since becoming a dog owner. Those of us who are Not Naturally Organized may think our Naturally Organized friends never feel this way, ever, but they do, with two key distinctions:This feeling of panic is triggered much more quickly in the Naturally Organized than in us.The Naturally Organized take immediate action.Again, it's as simple and as horrible as that.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Practice: The Basics of Marketing Your Business
Target market. Let’s begin by defining exactly whom you will be selling your products and services to. Make their avatar your ideal client. The more clearly you can define this early on, the more successful you’ll be in reaching them. Your limited marketing budget needs to be highly focused to be successful. Architects and designers often lack marketing skill because our professional training, for the most part, has yet to realize its value. Read as much as you can on the subject, at the very least the basic theory, because you’ll need a working lexicon.The group of people who prefer to read about high-end, more formal architecture is much different than the group who wants to read about young families living in modern homes. And, because it’s your business, you get to decide whom you’d rather work with. Figure out what they value, what they desire, where they hang out, where they vacation, what their family looks like, what they do in their spare time and what kind of music they listen to. If they emptied their pockets, what would they be carrying? Your brand should be crafted to attract these people, and now you must design your marketing strategy to appeal to their sensibilities.Take action: Develop your target market avatar to represent your desired clients; be as detailed as you can in describing them. List every possible location they might frequent: web, blogs, community, print, forums (online and off), social clubs, day care centers etc. Research the four P’s (product, price, promotion, place), the four C’s (consumer, cost, communication, convenience) and foundational marketing theory.
