I have been encouraged at the shopping opportunities in the local area this autumm.
I found 2 chairs and many other treasures
with which I will beautify my little cottage in the next few weekends.
First assignment I tackled was my "Breakfast Nook."
Having lived here for nearly 8 months now,
I have discovered that we congregate as a family for more than just meals in this area.
A problem was identified: No comfortable place to sit!
This is a biggie in my book, since I really LOVE
to TALK and LISTEN to my family members when they come around
and seem to want to talk.
Here is my solution: I removed the little Kitchen Table
(we really did use it quite a bit, but now I have an excuse
to use my lovely large Dining Room for Meals).
I pulled the little child's table in the area for "B" to snack on, and do his
Homework in the evenings. I am able to make dinner
and still supervise since the Kitchen is located
just to the right in the photos.
The materials I used were either given to me (hand me downs), or
I found them in a box in my basement from years ago.
The Gorgeous Pillows were a hand-crafted Housewarming Gift
from my talented Baby Sister.
Here is a "Before" Picture of the Breakfast Nook:
I love the way the little cozy area turned out... Now to conquer the Living Room!
