Breakfast Nook Update

I'm back with a home update! Finally. You may have seen a few of these pics floating around on my social media accounts:

It's summer around here which you'd think I'd be posting like mad and getting so many amazing things done around the house but I haven't. I've been designing and installing blogs like crazy. 

But then it hit me... the itch to DIY and update. So, I went blog hunting to some of my favorite blogs for ideas. I had some simple ideas floating around upstairs but I didn't know exactly. I knew I wanted to finish off the breakfast nook area. If you recall we built a corner bench that looks something like this:

Added some chairs, plopped some flowers on the table and that's pretty much how it's looked since February. Yikes!

About two months ago I put a shelf up over the left side (none window side) of the bench. Bad idea. Heads were bonked and no one wants a shelf that's so close to the ceiling that you can't put anything on it. Needless to say, I needed a solution. And then I saw that Kristin over at The Hunted Interior had done a cool update to her breakfast nook most recently. Genius! Wish I had half the talent and eye for home design like she does. Holy cow. 

I set off to Home Depot with my list of supplies needed and built these bad boys:

I'm telling you what - these were not easy. They gave me the fits! Long story short, staple guns can't shoot through MDF. Who knew! After many frustrating trips to the hardware store I ended up using super glue to put all the trim together.

Now what about that window? It needed some TLC as well. A quick run to target for:
  • Curtain rod
  • 63" cafe curtain
  • Curtain rings (which I actually already had but got a Target previously)
And then a quick run to JoAnn's for:
  • Thick black ribbon
  • Stitch Witchery
I used an iron to steam press on the ribbon down the curtain - super easy! 

Love love love the way it's all coming together.

Most recently I launched a design for Erin over at A Lowcountry Wedding. She was an absolute joy to work with and I have to say I'm pretty smitten with how the final product turned out. Give her some love over at alowcountrywed.com.
