Happy Thursday! Today I'm sharing some home inspiration with you. As most of you know, Harrison and I bought our 1964 home and it pretty much hadn't been touched since shortly thereafter. It needed a lot of love and TLC that we are still handing out every weekend. It's hard for me to sit still when I get an idea in my head, and this was no exception. We have a galley kitchen and the breakfast nook area was not functional at all; we never ended up sitting at the table we initially put there; it got in the way of walking space, and it made our kitchen feel even smaller than it actually is.

Enter, butcher block bar! Harrison and I came up with this idea to give us more counter space, a place for guests to gather in the kitchen, and an excuse for me to add pendant lights in our kitchen, since we don't have room for an island. Harrison took my idea and brought it to life!

We found antique corbels from 1900 on Etsy, and they were perfect underneath the bar.

My amazing, talented, awesome BFF Britt Bass Turner painted this for the space, and I feel like it was literally made for me (okay, it was)
