Breakfast Room Reveal

Well, folks, it’s time for the breakfast room semi-reveal! The breakfast room has been “in progress” for months. It’s not quite finished {lacking window coverings}, but I just couldn’t wait any longer to show you the progress that we’ve made! :)

Yeow!

Don’t gag, but this is what the breakfast area looked like a few years ago. Yikes!

We finally finished the window seat by following these basic plans.

Isn’t the cushion beautiful?!  It’s from CushionSource and I couldn’t be more impressed by their customer service and the incredible quality of the cushions!

I haven’t exactly decided how I want to accessorize the window seat cubbies yet, but my vintage Pyrex will do for now.  After a wild goose chase all over town, I finally found pillows for the banquette at Pier 1.

The detail is stunning!

{aqua, yellow, red…love}

The freshly redone dining chairs are perfect along with the vintage Wilendur tablecloths that I recently found at a local antique shop.

You can see how we designed the sides of the window seat to fit over the baseboards.  Since we don’t own our house yet, we didn’t want to do anything too permanent. Both the window seat and cushions are in two pieces, so they can ultimately be used together or separate.  Woot!

For any before and after lovers {you know who you are}, this is for you!

That’s a wrap, y’all!  We are loving the breakfast room…especially the super comfy window seat!

Please go check out Cushion Source for all your custom cushion and pillows needs!   I love this company and can’t recommend it highly enough to you!!

    Love how bright the room loves. Especially love the pillows! Your wild goose chase paid off, they are perfect.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! :) I love the red and turquoise (that’s is all over my home too). And I see you found your turquoise amish butterprint… you said you would love to have a collection a few blogs or so ago. 😉 I am so envying your window seat. We have our patio doors there in our house. I love that you made it so it is not permanent. You are one smart cookie! Thanks for sharing!

    WOW! Very, very nice! I’ve never been one to use saturated color in my own home like in your “before” photo so I truly love the lighter look you now have on the walls. I usually do my own sewing projects but I might have to keep the info for the Cushion Company…just in case I don’t feel like doing the project myself. Very cute! Two thumbs up :-)

      Thank you Connie! I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I was into such crazy saturated colors. I’m much happier with lighter and brighter. :)

    I LOVE the Lyre Back chairs and soooooo glad you kept them….. And I am loving on that vintage pyrex… I think my mom only had the orange and yellow, but the color on yours is up my alley.

      Thank you Rachel for your sweet comment! :) That gorgeous green desk is one of my favorite pieces…it goes with everything!

    Myra, I want you to know that this post saved my sanity! :) I had started to think I had a screw loose, because I just couldn’t solve a decorating dilemma.

    Honestly, I have been looking IN VAIN for new throw pillows. I needed some new ones in several places, principally in my living room. And I’ve looked and looked. . . even went to Pottery Barn, prepared to pay full price. . . and I just couldn’t find what I was looking for. Then I read this post, got off the computer, and went straight to Pier 1. They had EXACTLY what I wanted–in fact, there were several different ones that would have worked, and I got to stand there and think, “Hmmm. . . do I prefer this one or this one?”

    So I may be crazy, but it’s not because of throw pillows. Myra to the rescue. Thank you!!

      YAY! Girl. Seriously, the wild-goose-chasing-escapade just about killed me. HA! I’m so glad to have helped you out! xoxo

    Myra girl, you have a new fan (c: I love all your ideas…especially because I’m a renter, too and it’s so hard to work around not being able to do big changes! You have definitely proved me wrong about not being able to pull off a huge impact in a rental space, bravo! It looks fantastic! So glad that Kate featured your project!

    • Myra says

      Aww, Aubrey! I’m so glad you found me!!!! 😉 Yes, it is tough to decorate because I want to do all kinds of crazy stuff, but I don’t want my landlady to have a heart attack! :) Your comment made my day!

    • Myra says

      Thanks Jennifer! From what I’ve researched, the Pyrex is from the 50s and 60s…I’m totally addicted to the color and pattern!

  7. says

    FanTAStic, Myra! I had so much fun looking at all the little details! I’m in love with the cushions. And the color combo! Gah! I love it all!

    • Myra says

      Hi Lisa! Thank you for your sweet comment! :) I found that bicycle art at Hobby Lobby last year on clearance. I’ve seen other bicycle art there recently too! :)

    Hi,
    I have those chairs. They and the table that matches were my first big furniture purchase about 25 years ago. The table is a console table – one half of the top folds over the other half and the front has a false front that looks like a desk or console table. The part that folds over is finished on both sides It also has 3 leaves. I really love what you’ve done with the chairs and wouldn’t mind changing the colour of mine (also have a captain’s chair) but the table though fairly plain would be a big job. I haven’t done any refinishing in 20 years and arthritis has taken over. But you never know. I read all the blogs and you guys make spray painting look so easy (th0ugh I suspect it isn’t). :-)
    Great job!
    Cathy

    This is so lovely. I hope you don’t mind a silly question… Have you had any issues with the low windows? I’ve been wanting to do switch to bench westing for a while! But can’t figure out how to ensure my husband or sons won’t lean back and go through the glass. Any ideas?

      Hi Jaime, That comment was by a girl named Jill. My name is Myra. I think my window seat inspired her to get the foam and create a cushion herself. Mine were provided by Cushion Source. I hope that clarifies it a bit! :)

      • Jaime says

        Oh duh, it says inspired by! Well, thank you for the inspiration anyway, I’m looking to build my own nook/ window seat so the links to the cushion and plans are awesome!
