BREAKFAST NOOK MAKEOVER: NEXT STAGE

I started my post about the breakfast nook makeover with this desk and chair.
We had that set-up for a year or so, when I started planning a change for the space. I wanted to go for a dining table, a small one for this nook.

I found this pedestal table on Craigslist for $20. I did not buy the chairs the seller was selling with the table.
The size of the table was perfect but had to be tweaked.

Then on one of our IKEA visit, we picked these 3 chairs till I find what I was looking for.
For almost a year, I stalked the Craigslist and Garage sales for chairs that I wanted. Finally, last summer I found them.

And I sold these 3 white chairs on Craigslist. These are the pictures I had clicked to post on Craigslist.
I posted the ad in the morning before I left for work and a buyer picked them in the evening. We had paid $12 for each chair, I posted and sold for $10 each.
 
The breakfast nook is the most used space in our home. And it has gone through so many changes in the past 4 years. And it still is not done.

I will be back with the chairs that I found on Craigslist.
Do you sell and buy on Craigslist?

INTERIOR DESIGNER: LAUREN MUSE

Domaine Home had published the photos of a lovely home designed by Lauren Muse and I am sharing them with you all.
Lauren Muse designed this home for a family with three young kids. I like the way the coffee table in the living room is styled.

Every bathroom in the house is wall-papered whereas the rest of the house has either white or light color paint on the walls.

The Lucite and brass sink, the large print wall-paper and the gold mirror. I like it.


Only if I had this kitchen...I would whip up new dishes everyday.










I guess, I like this bathroom more than the previous one that I mentioned.

Blue and white family room. I have a chair that I am planning to re-upholster for our family room. I should go for something similar fabric.

I love the brightness and warmth in this home. How about you?

I have been sick for the past 5 days with bad cough. My rib-cage pained every time I coughed. In fact, Mr. and Sanjan are sick too. It never happened that all of three of us feel sick at the same time. Looking forward for the 3-day long weekend to recuperate.

You all have a great weekend.
