Breakfast and Kitchen nook changes…

I was feeling a little stir crazy with the blazing heat outside. I decided to change up my kitchen area a bit.
Do you remember my little kitchen nook?
Pretty and bright breakfast nook
I love my little breakfast/eat in area, but I just thought I needed a fresh look at things, and the kids have been out growing the bench.
So I swapped the dresser from the sitting area and moved it under the mirror above the nook.

 I love how the dark dresser looks against the white!

I moved the lamp from the living room in and a photo holder I found for  $7 at  a yard sale!

I added Zinnia’s and Cone-flowers from my yard.

I think it makes such  a difference and really opens things up  bit. And I love how the dresser looks with the mirror.

I saw the new Pottery Barn catalog this weekend and discovered that I had better taste in paint colors than I thought. Bennington Grey was all over their catalog walls and I painted mine that last October with the kitchen reno. Either that or they are blog stalking 😉 .

  1. So fresh! I’m always so impressed when just a few changes of furniture and accents makes such a big impact. And I love that mirror!

    I’d vote that Pottery Barn is stalking your blog!! 🙂

  2. Hand over the mirror and no one will get hurt. LOL! LOVE the mirror. Great little change around. I do that too. My hubby never knows what to expect. Ha! Ha!


  3. I was just looking at my new Country Living magazine and there was your kitchen – I would recognize your gorgeous silver tray anywhere – congrats – how very exciting!!!

  4. I just saw your kitchen in Country Living and squealed out loud! Lol, you’d think I actually knew you, instead of just admired your blog from afar! Congratulations 🙂

  5. How much fun is it to shop the house…instead of the mall. Changing things up is always a good thing and I think a great way to confuse the heck outta the hubbys!

  6. Beautiful! You are so talented. And I’ve always loved that mirror. Did you paint/antique it? I’d love to know your technique for that — I just got a new (to me) headboard for my daughter’s room and I want to do the same paint effect.

    Also — I have to ask — where’d your dining area go?

    Looks great!


  7. ohhhhhhh has cambiado tu zona de desayunos me encataba como lo tenias pero tengo que reconocer que asi tambien esta precioso, tienes muy buen gusto a la hora de decorar. Bss josefa.
