Into the Nook
Here's my Breakfast Nook.
See where I pulled the wallpaper off?
What a mess.
I pulled as far as it easily wanted to come off.
I hope I can just pull to the corner and stop there without having to remove all in the entire room.
So that I can just fix and paint one wall.
I've had this table for ages and ages.
I bought it right after college at an estate sale for $12.
It has been through everything with me.
I did not bang it up like that...it was already banged up.
In my last post I said that I removed all the pastel bowls from my kitchen
and brought them in here.
The whole room was transformed when I hung these simple cafe curtains I made.
I should have made them three years ago.
That's how long I've had the fabric.
It's actually a table cloth I bought at Ross.
I bought three of these table cloths so I could still make something else with it.
Perhaps I'll cover the seats of my dining room chairs.
Harvey and Violet.
Harvey is afraid that Violet wants some of the food he has scattered about.
She does not.
Harvey...really studying the food he's about to eat.
Wow...that wall is a mess...something to tackle after Christmas.
I've had this terrarium for quite some time and never have grown anything in it.
I wanted to do a whole miniature garden but need a tray to put dirt in and just have not
found the right thing.
So it has sat empty or nearly empty for quite some time.
When I changed things around in here the other day...it occurred to me to put some of my
odds and end McCoy flower pots in it.
This little willow table is in the opposite corner.
A dog bed stuffed underneath...not pretty...but they like to sleep under there when I am out of the house.
See all that missing paint?
Harvey chewed it off when he was a puppy.
Another thing to fix.
Just had to include...because he is the fattest, cutest dog ever.
This room looks like Spring and Summer for sure.
Doesn't look like Fall at all.
I'll try to make it look Christmasy over the next month.
This breakfast nook is filled with what used to thrill me when I was younger and lived in apartments.
I had these pastel flower pots and bowls everywhere and a serious collection of majolica.
I still have the majolica...it's just tucked away at the time being.
The floor in here needs to be redone and I'm thinking that whatever flooring I do in the kitchen...needs to flow into this room as well.
It needs to be super easy to clean as the dogs go in and out constantly to go to the backyard.
There are always leaves needing to be swept up it seems.
