A Breakfast Nook

So, remember the church pew I found? The one that's really a bit too big for our house? Well, I think I came up with a solution!

I turned our little kitchen eating area into a breakfast nook by adding the bench under the shelves.

It actually fits...and I love it!

It adds a lot of vintage character to our little eating corner, and doesn't take up too much room, thankfully.

Almost time for the Halloween decor to come down!

But I'll enjoy it, and our new nook, for just a little longer!

  1. Great idea Courtney! I'm glad it's not having to sit in the garage. :)

  2. It looks like it was meant for that spot!

  3. It looks like it was made for that spot. I love the church pew, I have always wanted one, but they always seem too big, love yours. I have a large bench in our kitchen and I love to change out the color of the cushions to match the seasons. Right now they are boo black.

  4. Thats a perfect spot for your new pew. Very Cute!

  5. Adorei esse banco. E a cor está lindíssima.
    Tenha uma ótima semana.

  6. I guess this means that I won't be trying it in my breakfast nook after all :(

  7. It looks perfect there!!
    Great space!

  8. Seriously, this is so so cute! My dad is a minister and we had a church pew as a banquette to our kitchen table as a kid. NOW, I wish I had one too. Especially after seeing your painted white. It looks beautiful, as does everything you post. xo

  9. Hi Courtney,
    I'm visiting from Feathered Nest Friday.
    Your white pew looks great in your kitchen nook - it adds so much character to the room.
    very glad to have found your blog.

  10. Your pew is just beautiful in that nook!!! Love it painted white :)

  11. that is beautiful! i LOVE the pew in there- gorgeous and makes it feel almost like a banquette.

  13. A perfect solution! I have always loved benches at breakfast nooks so I'm loving how yours looks.

  14. It ALL looks fabulous! and I'm wondering which color you used in that room? It's perfect!~Mel

  15. Love it. I saw a church pew at the restore a couple of months ago and just stood there and stared at and stared at it. I wanted it so bad, but it was just way too big for our house. I so wish I had just taken the plunge and bought it, as yours looks fabulous!

  16. Beautiful! It’s cool that every piece looks like they really belong, even though we know pews belong to a much earlier time. They are considered to be classic furniture. And you’ve actually focused on that aspect, setting a charming vintage touch to the whole space. Nice job! :D
