a 'new' old breakfast nook

i have had these two pieces now for
about a year.
i decided it was time to finish them.

emma was excited to help me paint!

 here they are all finished and distressed
and glazed.
i just love sitting here in the morning having breakfast,
at night while on the computer.

it has been a new favorite place.
because it is one of the few places that is actually finished!
and cleaned...

i was also able to finish this piece of art.
i found the butterflies on pinterest here
i think it fits in nicely with the color of the church pew

on a side note,
i have been reading 'one thousand gifts'
so i thought i would post a few things that i am thankful for,
i hope everyone has a blessed and enjoyable weekend.

~ being able to open the windows the last few nights
(unheard of this time of year in nebraska)
~ a body that allows me to run and walk
~ lower then normal humidity
~ projects finished
~ water sprinklers and pivots

Your artwork and the quilt look wonderful.

I am terrified to refinish furniture on my own. I think I need a mentor. At least your daughter won't be afraid. And I have been keeping a gratitude journal for over six months now thanks to 1000 Gifts. I love it.

They are beautiful! I love benches like that... my parents have one in their kitchen. Your art piece looks perfect behind these pieces! Love how the white is similar to the table and the blue pops out with the bench! A wonderful favorite place! :)
