house project: after (finally)

You may remember a while ago when I mentioned here and here that I was planning to redecorate my kitchen/breakfast area. As I read it again, I laugh at how I gave myself two weeks to complete the project. As it is over 3 months later and truthfully, I still have a bit more work to do.

BEFORE:

AFTER:
I got the curtains from Ikea, basically my favorite home store.
The left and middle vases are DIY projects that I will show you soon. The vase on the right is from Homegoods.
I just love this saying on the sign (from Hobbly Lobby). And here are my most often used cookbooks. I recently acquired several vintage cookbooks that I can't wait to break into.
Here is a photo from our wedding with my bridesmaids. I LOVE these girls. I plan to do a little DIY-ing to the cake stand soon.
At the bottom right is Jack's eating area. I still have a little work to do. But I thought it was about time that I did the big reveal!

So what do you think?!
It turned out even better than I imagined. The blue color just brightens up our home even more. Incase you didn't already know, I am a HUGE fan of color in our home. My dining room is orange!
