So it shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm already planning out updates to our breakfast nook. Although our nook is right next to the kitchen, so technically it could be lumped into our current kitchen update (if you think like my husband anyway). To me though separate space = separate budget = separate project!
Here is a look at our nook area as it was last Friday. We now have new tile (but not yet grout) up above the kitchen peninsula, so ignore the bare patch of drywall in the photo. Also, kindly ignore the strip of uneven wall and baseboard to the far right, since that is still leftover from when we took down the half wall railing that used to separate the nook and the family room. We'll be fixing that after we're done with the kitchen stuff.
Basically our nook is now just an open space between the kitchen and the family room that features a large window. It isn't a huge space, and it also is part pathway between the two rooms, so it can't be overflowing with furniture. But it can definitely stand to get a little love.
