From Dining Room to Office in 5 minutes

This room is actually our Formal Dining Room.  We entertain a lot so most of the time that is the purpose it serves.  Our office is upstairs, it is small and built into one of the dormers.  As my Interior Design opportunities have expanded, I have realized I need a place in my home, on the main level, to meet with clients.    





The solution, a 5 minute Switcheroo, from Dining Room to Meeting Room....     







When an opportunity to meet with a client arises, I have found a way to take the Dining Room, 





and turn it into a comfortable meeting/presentation area in 5 minutes.



 I just turn the table sideways, stash the side chairs in the garage, pull the zebra chair from the adjoining living room and... Voila...





Here is what the room looks like as the Dining Room,






and as the Meeting Room...





If you're coming to meet with me, just be sure to give me at least 5 minutes notice :)
