Breakfast Nook Decor

June 6, 2020 No Comments

One of my favorite parts of our new house has been our breakfast nook. It is an adorable space with a ton of light and a great view of the backyard and golf course. When we first moved in, we acquired a round glass table that fit into this area. However, glass tables are a mess with little ones. Constant fingerprints and a wobbly surface do not make a great pair with a 2-year-old! Not only this, I wasn’t super excited about the table and chairs that we had acquired looked in this space. I tried to decorate it the best I could but it never became exactly what I wanted.

Here’s a look at what it looked like before:

As you can see, I tried to cover the glass with a tablecloth to keep it clean but then it looked a little messy to me. The table was also fairly large and it was hard to get to the chairs near the windows. I was also not loving the five chair set-up because 1.) I wanted at least one more seat at the table and 2.) I like even numbers. ūüôā

So, I decided to give away the table and chairs on Facebook Marketplace and start from scratch!

First, I purchased an old table on Facebook Marketplace for $55 and refinished the top and painted the bottom. If you haven’t checked out Facebook Marketplace before, I highly suggest it! We have been able to buy and sell many items on here and have always had a great experience. There are also so many great pieces of old furniture just waiting to be restored!

After I finished the table, I purchased a variety of decor for the table and wall. Most of the items I purchased came from Amazon and Target (which I will link below) but the repurposed window shutter came from a local antique store.

I absolutely love how this space ended up and, honestly, it cost me less than $300 for everything! A lot of the decor items are still for sale at Target and Amazon which will be linked below.

As mentioned before, the repurposed shutter is not listed since it was purchased at a local antique store. The only other item I couldn’t find was the succulent that I purchased from Home Depot that appears to be no longer on sale. However, any small succulent would work in this space!

I hope you find these items helpful and feel free to share in the comments if you purchased any of them and/or your thoughts!
