Organize Simplify Create Design

It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Before and After

Breakfast Room

I have always loved this view of the door going to the back yard and the garden.  More than anything I just needed a change to the shabby side. After 10 years of the green I was ready for something new.
As you can see some things stayed in place but were altered with Annie Sloan chalk paint. The small beaded etagere was painted with the Ochre. The Seeds of Kindness frame was also painted. I changed out my glass table and iron chairs for 2 antique chippy chairs (not shown, look for these in a future post) and two Pier One Dana Parsons Chairs, with adorable colored covers. I was ecstatic over these covers, they have my Robins Egg Blue I'm incorporating. :) The oak table you see an edge of is an early marriage piece that had been stored in the attic. The walls were done with a warm brown called Virtual Taupe, by Sherwin Williams. I have a lot of garden books which I used to store on the bottom shelf of the etagere. Now I plan to house them in my cute cranberry crate. I still plan to change out my light switch plates. The ceiling fan in the previous post hovers over this table.
You will be hearing about the window makeover soon. In the meantime I love the shutters on the sides of the windows!
