~ Breakfast Nook ~ Shabby Side Table ~ Belle Blanc ~



Hi Friends
This past weekend I went antiquing and I found this petite shabby chippy side table
I decided to put it in our breakfast nook



This is my favourite spot to have my morning coffee and read my magazines
I love the natural light that comes into this room
The perfect spot for this shabby table


I found the slipcover for my antique french bistro chair at a thriftshop for a few dollars
My family finds it to be more comfortable with a slipcover


~ Simple ~



I haven't decorated for Fall yet in this room ~ I will add some pumpkins and cornstalks
I love the original 1930 built ins with the beveled glass mirror
(once I saw this nook I was sold on buying our home)


I love the chippy patina
I purchased it at my favourite antique shop Whimsical Whites



My breakfast nook and shabby chippy table
