Doorway into kitchen with the broom-closet-sized pantry. Hanging on the pantry door is my laptop lunchbox and a bag full of plastic grocery bags. We're going to change out that plate behind the dimmer switch for a white one.
Here's a picture of the half-wall and the line between the dining room and the library. Beyond the half-wall is a table with a large format laser printer and one of our many computers. Through the doorway is the kitchen (linoleum floor) and the living room (carpet and toys). You can see that there is half-wall between them as well.
