You know when you find a photo of an interior you love and you go back to look over and over again? Recently, that's been this photo. I really could spend all day in this space and be happy, I think. I mean who doesn't love a banquette? Don't you always pick the booth over the table when you go out to eat? Or is that just me?
See the doorway looking into the kitchen? I took it from our kitchen nook.
I turned it into a playroom shortly after we moved in.
|Yeah, the horrible vinyl never stops. Neither does the cream paint.|
Now that I'm almost finished decorating the girls' room -- thanks to my mom who is helping -- I can move a good number of these toys into some new storage I added in there. (Pictures coming soon!)
So the dated and very stained upholstered chair is going to go, and I'll be attempting some DIY benches which will wrap from corner shelf to corner shelf in order to a make a banquette. I already have the table. We'll see...it will still be a playroom of sorts, but at least I won't have to stand at the counter while I eat my breakfast anymore.
So there's the domino effect. When you are a family of four and you live in a two bedroom/one bath rental, you can't do something with one room until finishing another. It's like playing chess, and I hate to admit it has kept me up more than one night trying to figure out how all the pieces will move.
I need to learn to keep my analogies straight. Is it dominoes or chess? You know what I mean. :)
