  1. Oh my goodness, Ahna!
    Great makeover! The brick wall makes the perfect background for your cozy nook. I don’t blame you for holding on to that chandelier – beautiful! What a great place to sit down and enjoy a meal with the family. I do hope you’ll be sharing this at Homestyle Gathering! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Wowza, that looks fantastic! Love the brick. Glad you didn’t skimp out and put up fake brick wallpaper which sounds like something I’d do. Enjoy your new space. And what a good momma to let the little’s write on the wall. Good memories. 🙂

  3. Wow – this is fabulous Ahna! And I’m so impressed that you did it yourself! I just came over from Tuesday Turn About, and I’ll definitely be subscribing and following and liking and commenting. In fact I almost forgot to comment on this one, I was so excited to move onto your next post. 🙂 Thanks for the great inspiration!
