Nothing Like We Planned {Breakfast Room Reveal}

It seems like it was forever-and-a-day ago that I shared the big reveal of our kitchen revamp (here) and a peak into the breakfast room. Ok, so maybe it was only 3 weeks ago, but it has taken me a long time to say thank you. 
Thank you for all the lovely comments.  Which, by the way, we really do appreciate. Kind of the reason for blogging, that and the never ending excuse to work on the house!

Anyway, to show our appreciation the best way we know how, I thought I'd share a bit more of the house with you today. 
Welcome to the breakfast room. 

The breakfast room is open to the kitchen, which was one of the many criteria we had on our "new home" list. It's a light and bright space that is deceivingly large. 

The original plan for this room was to use our old, smaller breakfast table (here) from the Chicago house. It wasn't until the movers placed our farmhouse table here to "rest" that we even realized it would fit. The hutch, which I had planned to use in the hallway, found it's way into this room with a similar story. 

I purchased the rug from Overstock while we were living in our temporary apartment (here). I had planned to use it in the den. 
The jam cabinet found a brief home in the playroom housing art supplies until we decided to relocate it to this sunny corner of the breakfast room. 

The breakfast room is nothing like I had planned it to be, but that's the beauty and the irony of it all. Because it is, by far, one of the most "finished", most comfortable and certainly most inviting spaces in our new home. 
Funny how that happens.

Sometimes it's the least planned areas that turn out the best.
Take a second look at your own furniture, try it in a different space, it could be the best unplanned move you've ever made.
