The Kitchen

EAT SIGN:: Restoration Hardware - also sold here! // CHAIRS:: Amazon // LIGHTS:: old - similar here // Potted Box Wood 

When we moved in and I saw that the kitchen had a little nook to eat in - I was thrilled! The previous family kindly left the perfectly sized table for us so all we did was reupholster the cushions, install new light fixtures ( these are super cool too ) and put up the marquee lights! 

I chose to reupholster the cushions with a faux lizard leather - something easy to wipe down! I also went with a pretty neutral soft shade since the walls are a very pale blue / grey but I do foresee myself spicing this up in the future. One thing on my near future checklist? New hardware, and high glossing my cabinets! I would love this hardware on all the cabinets

The two chairs I put at the table I actually found on Amazon! I put another one ( sans arms ) in our foyer and one with arms for our desk chair in the office. They were such a steal and are also super easy to clean! Fabric in an easting area that will stain or is hard to get anything up you will total regret. Here is a tip - unless it's faux leather and you can wipe it down, I highly recommend fiber sealing! We fiber sealed both our living room rugs and liquid actually just sits on top of it! 

I'm also thinking of one day putting up a really fun wallpaper on the vertical wall behind me. Just to break things up and keep the rest of the walls, like the ones above the eating area a clean shade. But I know I need to table that little fantasy of mine for a bit and focus on some other major projects I am itching to do. It seems like home décor is never ending but I've come to realize if you do it right the first time you wont need to keep redoing things over the years. I have made a few mistakes but who doesn't! As my project list continues to grow or even little changes like rearranging my étagère I will keep you guys in the loop!
