The breakfast nook


The first thing we did after we closed on this house was strip this wallpaper.  It came off quickly & relatively easily, which was wonderful.  Jay pulled up the linoleum & we started painting.

Side note – I sent in my “decorating dilemma” to a blog that I regularly read. She posted it & people wrote in with  their suggestions. It is interesting to read others’ ideas. Check it out if you’d like 

Click on “ok” when it pops up. She is no longer posting there.

Dana was one of many friends who pitched in to help.

I bought this fixture on Craigslist & painted it.

My grandmother gave us this table & chair set & it was “blonde.” A few coats of paint, and new fabric on the chairs &  it fits this spot perfectly.


I found this piece at a yard sale, and it was pine before I painted it.


Before & After.
