Breakfast Room: Mini Makeover

I think it's safe to say that the breakfast room is the ONLY room in the house that is done ... well, done enough. There are still a few things that I'd like to add .... a centerpiece & some new placemats to be exact. But for now, this is as much love as this room is going to get! :)

I wish I had a BEFORE picture ... I'm so terrible at remembering to take them. I just get so excited about the project, that I don't have time to stop for pictures. I'll get better. I promise. I may even attempt some tutorials -- but for now, I'm just showing off! :) If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them!!

Also, I'll apologize in advance for the pictures/lighting ... the only time I get to work on anything is late at night, after Tarzan and Monkey have fallen asleep.

So here goes: My Breakfast Room Mini Makeover!

I re-upholstered the chairs (see here) the first week we moved in. We purchased this cute little set off Craigslist... but the chairs were in desperate need of a little TLC. :) 60% off Waverly Fabric, 1 hour of my time and voila!! New chairs!

I added some cheap, inexpensive DIY artwork that took less than 30 minutes and some simple, no-sew valances. :) It looks soo much better than before! I love eating my toaster strudel yogurt here every morning! :) I love the fun fabrics and the peaceful colors!

I'm not sure how I like them - but for now, they work.

Cute, Easy Silverware Artwork
and shelf with EAT letters!

Please ignore awful lighting/colors - this is with flash!

I just Looovee that material. It makes me happy.
See how simple they are. Seriously, it's ridiculous.
But they make SUCH a difference! :)

Doesn't get easier than that.

Once the rest of the house is done, I'll work on that centerpiece and placemats ... until then, I'm liking it. Next room on the list - the living room & Nelson's room.
