Our Breakfast Nook Update

Wallpaper can be your friend… If it is covering up other wallpaper you don’t like.

I wanted to do this focal point wall because it has relatively small surface space because of the window and because our house is mainly white. While I love all the white walls, I wanted to be a little more daring in this house. Creating spaces with a pop was important to me.


I’ll tell you a secret… this wallpaper is removable! It is basically thick contact paper. My sister and I tackled this project. In true Haley fashion, we ran out of wallpaper and I had to order another roll so a project that should have been a weekend took a couple weekends. It is currently out of stock in the black and white, but comes in two other colorways! Also, I’ve found a really similar option for you linked at the bottom of this post! The black and white colorway does come back in stock occasionally so I will keep checking and update y’all if it comes back again!


But, I’m thrilled with how it turned out. One snafu we had was this window is concave so there is a line behind the curtains where the pattern doesn’t match up. So be aware of that if you have a similar area that you are thinking of using wallpaper with a pattern that has to match up.


As for the decor and furniture…

I scored this light fixture right after we moved in this summer for under $100. It is on sale right now for $125! I have also linked some similar options below.


The table was my great great grandma’s. Her father gave it to her as a wedding gift. I love how the chairs don’t compete with the sight lines as this window looks out into our back yard/ pool area.


The last element to this little breakfast nook will be new flooring. If you noticed in the before post here, the black kitchen tile was laid at a curve so installing new floors won’t just be ripping up carpet… We will have to tackle taking up the tile too.

I’ll update this post once we have that complete! I cannot wait! It’s going to look so good!
