Well, I took down the daybed. The one that was in my breakfast room.
I thought it was charming, but it was too big for the breakfast room and was only meant to be a placeholder until I could get a settee.
I found this settee listed in a Beg, Barter, Buy Sell group on Facebook for $60. Even though the fabric is dated, I thought the settee had good lines, and the measurements were perfect at an 18″ seat height.
I put a slipcover on it until I can afford to get it reupholstered. I’d rather pay someone to do that.
But, they add color and life to the breakfast room, which is what it needs.
These new place mats and napkins add color and texture, too.
I recently placed this depression glass bowl, another treasure from Nonna’s house, on the black bookcase. I love the pink and black together. And it’s functional; holding Mr. Hines’ wallet and receipts and such.
The breakfast room has been through so many changes in the almost 7 years that we’ve lived here. It started with selling the valances and box cushion I had originally made for the space.
Then adding the daybed, the most recent “before.”
And now replacing the daybed with a settee.
But it is gradually becoming a space that feels like home, my home.
I’ll be collecting inspiration and narrowing down my choices for the room makeover. In the meantime, I’d love your opinion on what would look good in the corner behind the settee and what I should do with the chairs.
See you in class,
