It’s always fun to look back and see how your house changes over time. It’s been over a year of changes here and there, and the breakfast room is finished! I’m so glad I took pictures of the house the day we moved in so I can see how much it’s changed. This photo is from June of last year:
And, this is how it looks today:
We started by removing the window treatments (I love those windows and wanted to see the entire height of them). We used the table we had in our dining room at the last house. I almost sold it when we moved but am so glad I didn’t. This area can hold a large table, and we need every inch of it.
I traded out the caned back chairs for something a little more kid-friendly (no upholstery!) and found this set on Craigslist. We changed out the light fixture for the Overstock chandelier I blogged about here.
I actually think the color looks a little more intense in the photos than in person. But, it is a lot of yellow. I don’t think it would’ve worked if we hadn’t painted the walls white first. (My husband says he likes how the yellow frames the green outside. Can you believe he said that before I did?!)
I originally ordered this runner for the back hallway, but I like the pattern it adds to our kitchen. It also works with the framed burlap art (details here).
