eating nook — repairs nearly complete

I couldn’t wait to show you the eating nook.  It isn’t quite finished, but you can get a good idea of where we’re heading with it.

We still need to trim around the windows, put in the baseboards (which will be just like the living room) and at some point Kelly is going to build a breakfast bar under the windows.  That is why it is “roughed in” and not drywalled yet.  Right now we have our deck furniture in there.  I actually like it, but the table isn’t quite high enough.  Tali can easily pull apples out of a bowl on that table.  So I had to move the apples and just bought some flowers from the grocery store.  I smile every time I walk through there.

** edited to add:  Oh goodness, I didn’t even realize we forgot to hang the light fixture.  Add that to the list of what needs to be done in there!
