The dinning room re-do part one!

First  some before pictures…

I saw this idea in the Lowes idea book,and I just thought it would be a great thing to do in our dinning room !http://

We have little or no storage in the house. We have a full basement but ,it is not a good place to put things that you want to get to again.

So here are the the during pictures…
