Ceilings are 8'. I did find a photo of what I'm thinking of, just not with this color scheme (wallpaper):
the dining room is open on one wall to the kitchen.
I need a better dining room pic, but for now, this is what I have-dining room:
this is the front door which is between the two (kitchen on the left, dining room on the right)
I plan to build a wall like what you see on the left side of the kitchen photo next to the fridge (left side of the door photo) only takller, to "hide" the fridge and provde a coat rack so there will be more "naked" pine there. I also want to get a fridge that matchs my "new" stove (a 1950's Floyd Wells Bengal).
