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 Cost
Estimated Time Investment

Type of Wood

Finish Used
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.
