DIY Breakfast Nook

I completed this project in a weekend, over 2 days. The space was an empty void in the corner of our kitchen, so I decided to fill with a functional seating and eating space.

I first removed the trim from the wall, so I could reuse it on the front of the box later, to make the bench match the rest of the kitchen. One challenge I came across was rerouting the a/c vent through the front of the box so we didn't lose that circulation.

My sister-in-law chipped in to make the cushions and pillows to soften it up. I added the DIY table, and further defined the space with wainscoting and trim.

Estimated Time Investment

Semi-gloss trim paint was use, to have the ability to clean later after meals, etc.

Looks fantastic. Love how you reused the trim to have the whole unit blend in with the rest of the kitchen. Well done.

There are not lot more websites where you can this kind of DIY projects and I have not seen much videos about these kind of things seriously all things look very easier as I feel that I can also make this breakfast table at we also try to give new ideas to the people and try things by their own once I get all the tools required in this project I try to make this.
