The family that belongs to this dining room didn't used it that often. (Holidays and special dinners, like many people.) When designer Stephen Saint-Onge heard that, he suggested they turn it into something that they'd use every day. Namely, a family room. Stephen is all about encouraging people to see the space in their homes in new ways, and he certainly delivers with this makeover. He has a relationship with IKEA, so the retailer figures prominently. Now it looks as fresh as those French doors make it feel. For more pictures of the makeover, visit Stephen's blog, Designer Dad.
