Kitchen and Breakfast Nook

Our house is slowly coming together and looking a little homier! Today I took some time and hung some things up in the kitchen.

The breakfast nook. I'm still trying to decide if I want to hang curtains, and if so, how to go about it. Feel free to weigh in! I also have my eye on a piece of art from Etsy for that large wall. We got the table and chairs from Craigslist. They're solid wood, and older. It was hard to find something that would fit in our space and not cost a lot!

Looking into the kitchen from the breakfast nook.

The previous owners painted the side of the cabinet in chalkboard paint. I decided to go with the flow. I wouldn't have done this but I didn't want to try matching paint to the cabinets! So I hung my "eat" sign up, printed out some vintage recipe cards and newspaper clippings and hung them with tiny clothes pins.

Here's a closer look:

There you have it! Slowly but surely, things are settling in!
