These are the pictures from the MLS listing when we found our house.
When we moved in, we put the only table we owned in the "breakfast nook" and had an empty dining room.
Then we added wainscotting (see that post here).
Then our great friend, Rylee, came and painted for us...again (he painted our kitchen, dining room and master bedroom hours after we moved in as well). He turned our DIY wainscoting job into a piece of art. The color really opened up the room and brightened it up. We chose Pearly White by Sherwin Williams.
After moving the table back in and putting the PB Knock-Off light fixture back up, we have our "during" breakfast nook redo!
Here are some other shots of the kitchen.
Here is a before and during shot to see the difference side by side
What's next? Curtains, wall decor and color! I am stuck on the curtains, though. Any ideas of what I should do?
