Kitchen Nook- Simplifying

Ok...so seriously, if you read this post and maybe this one recently, you would probably think that this new post is a little on the crazy side. :)

I know, I know...I just can't leave well-enough alone and always have to change something up until I absolutely love it.

That is exactly what I did last week with our kitchen nook. 
Hard to believe it started out looking like this just last year.

To start, I wanted to simplify things a little bit with this area so I added texture to the light fixture and got rid of the chevron seating.
I also added a new pillow (in chevron) and did a little bit of touch-up paint.

Here is what our nook looked like after I started this process.

Oh! I also painted the table top in an off white color that I mixed myself out of some left-over paint.
Gotta love using what you already have! :)

I am saving the finishing touches for tomorrow's post so please check in tomorrow to see what our nook looks like now.

And this time, it's not changing for a while! ;)

What parts of your home do you feel like you are always tweaking?

Thanks for stopping by!
