Hi Friends! Sharing details about my long-awaited breakfast nook makeover. As with all my projects, making over a space involves a lot of planning. My goal is to always find the most budget friendly way to makeover a room. I am so happy to share my process and some updated plans for this beautiful space.
Just a reminder of what the space looked like prior to the breakfast nook makeover. The old furniture while still functional was more of the farmhouse style and was no longer the style we were going for. My goal was to make it bright and airy and bring in modern pieces with a few classic pieces added as well.
FURNITURE AND MAIN PIECES:
The rug was the first piece I chose for my breakfast nook makeover. When I stumbled on it a few months before, I knew I had to have it in my home somewhere. It is an indoor/outdoor rug which adds a lot of versatility to the space. I was thrilled to incorporate it into this room. While it is sadly not available anymore, I have linked some similar rugs.
I also wanted a round table to compliment the rug. I love the pedestal look but most of the ones available in this style lean more traditional. When I discovered this table that incorporated the pedestal look with clean lines, I knew it would be a perfect addition to the space.
We decided to keep the black hutch from our old dining room. I love this piece and will have it in our home for a long time.
I also moved this bench from another area in the house to provide additional seating.
The Mid-century modern weave chairs were a great addition. I have always loved this look and I am glad to have been able to incorporate them into this space. The cane rattan chairs were a great find. I like that it adds a different look to the room but compliments the Mid-Century modern chairs. While no longer available online, you can find at your local stores.
Most of the accessories in the space where already owned. My blanket ladder was a thrift market find. Pillows and basket were items that I have used in other spaces around the home.
I have an affinity for ginger jars and this whitish gray one was a perfect center piece for the table. You can find all the available accessories below.
My future plans include adding a built-in bench by the windows. At the time I planned this makeover a while back, I was going to contract it out. However, I will be building the bench and hoping to add that soon.
As you might notice, there is no chandelier or focal light fixture in the space. I am holding off on that for now. I like to be able to move things around when we have guests or are entertaining. It has become a spot that can transform into an open space for versatility. As such, adding a chandelier will limit the potential.
I am thinking of doing a shiplap wall over the bench and possibly adding wall sconces by the window to make up for the missing light fixture.
I also plan to add trim around the windows and switch out the blinds for shades.
As a big advocate in taking time to make over a space, I am always looking for budget friendly ways and options to incorporate style and functionality to rooms. You do not always have to have it planned out completely.
Sometimes making small changes and adding on in the future is the way to go. I am excited to see this room evolve over time but very content with where it is now.
The breakfast nook makeover has been a cheery addition to our home, and we spend a lot of time here especially now that we are home more.
Thank you for stopping by and look forward to giving you updates in the future.
