our home:: before and after :: breakfast room

in my post here you learned that when we moved into our house it was brown. 
all brown.
floors. walls. and most ceilings.

we have made some serious changes since then, but it's been gradual.
my sweet hubby gives me a decorating budget each month, 
but re-decorating is still a thrifty game! 

I personally think it's more fun than just having an unlimited amount of $$$. 
I love to come up with budget friendly, creative ideas that can transform a space. 
All of my new additions to the breakfast room have been posted,
and the room's updates are complete (for now) so
i wanted to show you the before, during, & after pics.

the original breakfast room.
b-fast room painted yellow (1st color we chose)
 with the newly painted red chandelier.

b-fast room painted "clothesline fresh" w/ newly painted chairs & table
addition of thrift store mirror and white plates
painting the corner hutch white
the addition of the credenza
painting the curtains 
the addition of my cali antique market rug 

drum roll please....

our breakfast room ranks high on my list of favorites.

we've shared wonderful times as a family around that table, 
spent many evenings laughing with friends after dinner,
thanked the Lord for our abundant blessings,
and our little one has reached quite a few milestones in his chair.

i hope your breakfast room is a special place 
where you take the time to spend sweet moments with your loved ones, too.

recent pictures as of 2/1/2011

the addition of rosemary topiaries & a burlap table runner
adds the perfect amount of natural elements and texture

fresh white roses with a pop of red hypericum berries
is a great wintertime centerpiece

now i don't usually prefer silk flower arrangements, but
this white hydrangea wreath hung on the church doors at our wedding.
love the wonderful memories it reminds me of!
