Breakfast Nook Re-design
A little while back (oh say like 6mns or so ago ha!) I decided it was time to redesign our breakfast nook area. I REALLY hated how the space was not really functional. It also did not make the best USE of the space we have… which is a fairly generous space actually. I am also a storage nut. I wont lie, I dont always know how to make the best use of all the storage we do have – BUT I will always find a way to make an unstorage-d space into one that has dual purpose. with that in mind, I started to look around for idea’s on pinterest – here is my “kitchen ideas” board . Originally I wanted to use a settee loveseat like this one from Target but decided it would not make the best use of my space. SO I M. to load up the car with a few different sized EXPEDIT bookcases from ikea and away we went! After the bookcase were installed I realized that I was also not making the most use of the new found bench seating.. I have a dream table in mind, but in the meantime – I found a really funky 1950′s dining table off of FB and had it stripped and re-painted white and red. I then took a trip to Michael’s for some fabric – I will eventually add some vinyl clear fabric over the benches, but I will at that point probably pick new fabric as well. In the meantime, it turned out pretty great and we are enjoying our new found space and storage!
