House Update: Breakfast Nook

It only took us 1.5 years to decide how to use the awkward nook space in the kitchen. Our previous breakfast nook table was way too big – and it was relatively small! So we sold it and left the space empty for a long time.

A small bistro table + 2 chairs was finally decided on. Easier said than done, of course, as they are hard to find and we tend to be a tad picky… I ended up ordering this unfinished table from Wayfair and staining it myself.



It was a pain in the rear to stain it but I was thrilled with the end result! I used Weathered Gray by Rustoleum. Jason brushed the top in clear matte polyurethane to protect it. I didn’t want a high gloss finish so the matte worked perfect.

The chairs are from Ikea and they are probably one of my FAVORITE Ikea pieces. Sturdy, pretty, and inexpensive. Plus I didn’t have to paint them! They come in a bright white finish.







We’ve done a lot around the house lately so I’ll be back with another update soon! It’s finally coming together! 🙂
