Last year my boyfriend (now fiance 🙂 and I bought our first house (a rowhome in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia) and we’ve spent the last few months transforming the first floor, mainly the kitchen (check it out here!), and also building this breakfast nook in the main living area.

The breakfast nook with built-in storage costs were around $300-500 (Patrick built it as my birthday present last March), the wire chairs were a gift from my mother, the pendant light was found for $50 on ebay, the antelope head was found at a local favorite shop of ours, Jinxed, and I found the round table for $40 on craigslist. It was covered in a million thick coats of a nasty dark stain, so we let some paint remover sit on top and just scraped it off – we liked the beat up look it had so we left it unfinished after that.
