Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club
Uggh, I don’t feel so good. I recently tried my hand at couponing, therefore I started buying a lot of foods I don’t normally buy, therefore I had a Toaster Strudel and Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast, which is waaaay to much sugar for me, therefore my hands can barely type right now.

Speaking of breakfast, check out Amanda’s new breakfast nook below! I’m not even sure if it’s really a breakfast nook, but I thought that would segue nicely. Oh, snap. I just reread her blog. It IS a breakfast nook. Kismet. Check it out on Amanda’s Adorables.

    I’m pretty sure that toaster strudel is made with a petroleum byproduct.

    Toaster Strudel – according to their advertisements – are sooo much better than Pop Tarts. I mean what isn’t better about being half the size and three times the calories! Woo woo! Ha ha. Anyway.

    Those chairs can ALWAYS benefit from an update! Looks nice and I love that table.

    I’m not a die hard wood lover…but that one does kind of break my heart. Look at that beautiful tiger stripe oak!! Please tell me it was in awful condition 🙂

    Most of the makeovers you feature involve furniture that is ugly or damaged and in many cases would have ended up in a landfill if not rescued and refurbished into something attractive. I am always happy to see these items “recycled” and given new life. But in this case, I agree with Blueprint Vintage–that table was so beautiful in its “before” state. I would prefer to have seen those nicely re-done chairs around the table in its original state.

    I am pleased that there are others who are of a like mind who preferred the table in its original condition. I would have painted the chairs a brighter color, put on some lovely placemats and called it a day.

    Thank you for featuring the table & chairs! 🙂

    OH! Also – you can’t see in the pic, but the table top had some sort of strange burn (?) mark or something on it. It wasn’t “for us” it it’s original state, but I understand to each his own! 🙂

    Only use coupons for items you’d normally eat and mix them with sale items. I spent $100 dollar this week and saved $80 and only bought stuff I knew we’d eat and it was all healthier stuff too. Find a good couponing blog and get the low-down on couponing. They’re great resources!

    While I agree “to each his own” and think Amanda did a nice job, I really like the tiger oak. Even with a burn or blemish (just adds character) I’d prefer the table in its original finish or perhaps the top stained darker to hide the imperfection. Pieces made from quarter sawn or tiger oak (means the same) originally cost more because fewer boards can be sawn from the oak log.
