Drama For The Breakfast Room

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend!
We've been working in our breakfast room and kitchen. We were hoping to paint the ceiling today so I could get started on the walls this next week, but Mr. Fanatic got a trouble call for work and had to leave for the afternoon. The new paint will have to wait yet again. : (
I found some new curtains at Ikea a few weeks ago for the breakfast room and  put them up.
Here's what the breakfast room looked like several months ago with our old  rectangular table.

Here's what the breakfast room looked like with the  "new to us" round pedestal table we found on Craigslist, but before the curtains...

Here's what the breakfast room looks like today with the curtains...



If you look closely, you can see where we cut in with the paint in anticipation of painting today.
Can't wait to get the new paint color on the wall... and, I might have something planned for new lighting, as well.

Pam


The Ikea curtains are called Vivan.

  3. Pam I just discovered your blog while visiting A Stroll Thru Life. I was so thrilled to see your new breakfast room project. I hung white panels on my breakfast bay windows too and it gives the room so much drama. I cannot wait to see what color is going on the walls. Its going to be beautiful!

  7. Wow! Looks fantastic.

    Do you mind my asking which Ikea curtains these are? Because they appear to be EXACTLY what I've been prepared to make and, loving sewing about the same as scrubbing toilets, I'd love to find them ready made (and reasonable). I love Ikea, but their online photos don't always display things the best.
