Breakfast Nook -Before and After



That top picture was the breakfast nook when we first moved in. It had shelves that were cute, but also clutter collectors and a funky little table that only allowed two people to squeeze in. So last year we ripped out shelves for a little extra room, painted walls and trim and got this:

I liked it better but it was still hard to fit our growing family in here for breakfast. So then Zac suprised me with the perfect solotuion as my Mother’s Day gift. He built a custom window seat to wrap around the windows with seating for 6! Nana made the adorable box pleat curtains (the only credit I can take is for sewing on the buttons)  I added a craigslist round table (painted with chalkboard paint for extra fun) and now we can all linger over coffee and chocolate milk here together.

Beadboard inset and reused trim make it feel original to the house

    I love it! When I see beadboard it reminds me of the Hostetter/Brann touch. The window seats open the room up too. I am a fan of getting rid of clutter! Three cheers for storage. Great job with the buttons.
