the nook

8 Mar

So now that I’ve finished the living room (for now at least) I wanted to start tackling our breakfast nook. It had been previously taken over by the dogs but now that Zoe is eating solids we have really started to use the area again.

You can’t really tell from the photo but the table was way to big for the space, and now with the addition of a highchair it felt very crowded.

Old breakfast nook

So on to craigslist the table went and in came the new!

I had been wanting a vintage Saarinen table for a long time now, but damn are they expensive! So I decided to just bite the bullet (after much convincing to the husband) and buy the knock off version from Ikea.

I absolutely love it! You really can’t beat the price and it’s the perfect size for the space. Yay!

We also plan to install a built in corner bench, which will free up a lot more space.

So much pretty inspiration on pinterest.

Anyway I’m excited to see it all come together and this time I’ll try and keep you all in the loop!

Have a great weekend!
