The Breakfast Nook

We had a dining table and corner bar that we mostly used to hold cookbooks, junk, mail, and occasionally actual trash. It was a wasted area that we didn’t enjoy, and Fluff was nice enough to scratch the back of one of the dining chairs to shreds. I love me a good restaurant booth and always opt for one when we go out, so Norm and I talked about how amazing it would be to have a restaurant booth at home. Then we set about crafting something long those lines.

The table and benches came as a set from Wayfair, and we purposely stuck everything in the corner to 1) open up the space and 2)make the wall seat more booth-like! That’s my side (in the not-winter. In the winter, the wall makes it VERY cold and I will not sit there).

We got the hanging lamp from Ikea, and ordered a push button switch for it from Amazon.

I ordered what I THOUGHT was green fabric from JoAnn’s to make the curtains, but the blue turned out to complement the green lamp. We had floor to ceiling sheers but we wanted something a little more “window-at-a-pizza-place.” And the hanging planters have basil and a jade plant, just out of Fluff’s reach because she is a plant snacker.

We set the table with a napkin holder we had and Mrs. Salt and Mr. Pepper shakers that we got for our wedding! We try to keep the water pitcher full so we never have to get up for more water during a meal.

 

The space was complete when we added the Norm & Kerry Lego painting- also a wedding gift, from Norm’s high school friend, Joe! His work is incredible and I’m so happy to have a piece for our home.

And of course, since everything in our house is a cat toy, Fluff has a lot of fun with the napkins!
