I shared the evolution of the kitchen the other day and could have included the breakfast room, too since they do go together, but the post would have been too long so I'm sharing the breakfast room today.
How many of y'all remember this? I shared my breakfast room the first time in February 2010 and then republished that post again in April for a link party.
In that post I shared this old photo of the way the breakfast room looked before blogging and before I got the yellow table and chairs. I still have this butcher block table and chairs stored away in the bonus room. You can see more of those old photos here.
This wall has changed many times over the years. Y'all know I like to switch things up.
In March 2011 I revealed the new look in here after beadboard wallpaper was hung high with trim and a fresh new coat of paint. I loved those cow canvases at that time and they were such a steal. I think this was the start of my cow fetish.
I've been known to swap the breakfast room chairs with the dining room chairs. I like the mismatched look.
In January 2013 I replaced the cows with some dogs. I fell in love with this painting at an antique store and hung it here. Then it moved later to the great room. I had also replaced the red checked curtains with these burlap panels from the Ballard's outlet when burlap for a bit when burlap was all the rage.
A trip to the antique mall again in the winter of 2013 I lucked up on these vintage Ethan Allen sconces and they were perfect on each side of the painting. Now they are in the dining room on each side of the hutch.
The chandelier was replaced with this brick red lantern from Ballard's in September 2013. I am still very happy with this change. You can see the work Mr. Savvy had to do to hang this baby here. Oh, and the artwork changed again when I found this vintage Ethan Allen painting at a consignment shop. It now hangs in the foyer by the stairs.
February 2014 I shared my French farmhouse table that I bought in France on my first time to France in September 2013. I have used several different chairs with the table. The black ones were with the original butcher block table that I shared above. And as you can see the painting changed yet again with this painting I found at the Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta.
The red checked curtains were shortened into cafe style in July 2014 by Mr. Savvy. This was an easy no sew job.
I decided to paint the kitchen and breakfast room in French Canvas by Benjamin Moore in August 2014 after painting one of the guest rooms upstairs with it. It has less yellow than the Frappe I had painted in here before. I also had Mr. Savvy hang my pitch forks.
I told y'all the wall went through many changes and last March I decided to do a gallery wall using my vintage breadboard and some copper molds. It still looks like this today.
In my summer home tour I had swapped out the chairs again and used the ladder back chairs from the dining room.
Soon I will share the way this looks now since the chairs have been swapped again.
