The Kitchen Nook

Welcome to our kitchen nook, just a little area between the kitchen and living room. It is our only dining space at the moment, and also double as our homework and board game headquarters.

When we bought the house.. the space looked like this.

It had a very vintage bronze and china chandelier. that threw up some very odd shadows on the wall. Seriously the shadow was the same shape as a certain body part.. I won't even show a photo of it. 

Anyhow.. it was on my list of things to go, even without the x-rated shadow. 

This is our breakfast nook now. The light fixture is from HomeDepot and I bought the coordinating light for the kitchen. They are an antique gold color with glass beads and they cast very sparkly affects on the ceiling. They look very nice with the Rejuvenation crystal knobs and brass pulls the kitchen already had. 

I havn't put a carpet in here yet. I'm a bit undecided on what would fit the space. It would need to be super hard wearing as the door to the back yard is right here and the dogs and kids go in and out quite often. For now just sweeping and damp mopping the space seems to be easiest.

The wall space next to the counter wasn't large enough for the china hutch, and it also doesn't have a wall outlet for anything that has lights. For the moment my antique singer treadle machine is living here. It actually sews, and dosn't need to be plugged in. Above is my thrift store chalk board where we write out our weekly meal plan. 

The full french doors give good daylight for spreading out weekend homework or playing a game.
