House Makeover

Let’s Nook! Reveal

Last week, another one of my wishes/plans turned into my reality. I am talking about the transformation of my bay window from a bland spot to the Perfect Breakfast Nook! It took a lot of planning and Pinteresting, but the result is most satisfying!

This is what the place looked like BEFORE:


Good space, lots of light – ah, you should see the first sun rays in here! – as cozy as they come. But bland. Void of color and personality. MY personality, that is 🙂

A whole week into making – dust, noise, mess, time wasted on extra trips to hardware stores and frustration – all included in abundance!

And here it is – My very own DIY Built-in Breakfast Nook Storage Bench!




 Meanwhile, I am looking into having a seat cushion made. But Las Vegas is not a very make-your-cushion friendly city, so it’ll take some more time, especially with the ridiculous prices on foam (groan)…

  1. I just love the cozy feel of built-in bench seats – yours looks fabulous and totally changes the feel of your space. And I’m hearing you on the cost of foam – it’s crazy! Thanks for sharing on Best of the Nest!

  2. That’s incredible to me.
    I can cook anything, I will eventually get the hang of photography, but put a hammer in my hand and you’re guaranteed destruction. 😉
    What’s the view from that bay window, anyway?

      1. I don’t suppose you ever watched I Love Lucy growing up? The image of building a brick BBQ recalls an episode. 🙂

        I don’t suppose you can use that to make pizzas, too?

      2. I did watch I Love Lucy for a while when I was little (when I lived in Singapore) – it was my grandpa’s favorite! I’ll go and find the episode about the brick BBQ 🙂 and no, the pizza and bread oven is our next step!
