One Room Challenge Week 4 | Breakfast Nook | Spring 2016

The toughest week for this ORC yet! Time is ticking and the artwork for this breakfast nook is what is stressing me out the most. Last week I mentioned I'm struggling to choose between 1 large piece, or a series/grouping on the large white wall - 1 piece will break the bank a bit more so I may resort to a grouping. Or, if I'm feeling gutsy I could buy a giant canvas and try to come up with something myself, eek!! Above is the one piece I've purchased so far, a lovely gold bamboo frame to showcase one of my own pieces that I actually did way back in high school, so at least it has personal meaning. And a hint of blue will go well with the blue & white centerpieces I hope to use on the table. I'm going to place this piece here:
I've hated this wall as it separates the corner of our kitchen from the eating nook, but of course, it's load bearing :( So I figure at least if there is pretty art to distract, it won't be quite as bad.
We are awaiting this buttery soft faux (aka wipeable) leather so we can get going on the chair reupholstery project, please come on time!
Gotta get the DIY frosted glass done this week for the French doors, and then after that it'll be all about the styling, I'm hoping for a spring brunch tabletop vibe!
Here's my to-do's from last week with an update on where I am at:
  1. Order and frame all artwork (2-4 pieces total, got 1 done so far)
  2. Order faux white leather (awaiting it's arrival) and foam
  3. Re-upholster chairs
  4. Buy place mats and a centerpiece
  5. Order the accent pillows for the chairs
  6. DIY frost screens for the French doors for privacy

Hop here to see my nursery update, and of course check out all the amazing ORC projects on Calling It Home blog!

Awesome spring decorations! Pleased to have these details here. We attended a grand spring themed bridal event at local Seattle convention center. It was a fantastic event and got great inspirations for my wedding.
