Let’s Try This Again–New Dining Chairs in Breakfast Nook!

Well after several weeks of trying (and failing) to find the perfect dining chairs for our breakfast nook, I *think* I finally did it. I returned the black chairs from Target that I shared in this post and I spent more time than I’d like to admit searching for their replacement. I looked online at pretty much every store out there and ultimately settled on something totally unexpected. I never would have imagined these chairs in my breakfast nook, but as soon as I saw them I fell in love. Come seeeeeeeee!

Minty green for the win!! I know they’re probably not for everyone, but I was practically giddy when I saw these chairs online. I just love adding in pops of color and this is the perfect shade of soft green. The color actually reminds me of the herringbone wall in my office! I love how they soften this space compared to the black chairs I had in here before.

This wooden bench was actually something I already had on hand. I’ve had it for a few years now, but it had a dark stain so I sanded it down to give it a softer look. I LOVE how it turned out and I think it compliments the chairs perfectly! Plus it’s just so handy to have a bench in this spot for the kids. This little breakfast nook feels SO much more light and airy now. I just love the fun pop of color happening here and best of all, these chairs are super comfortable! The high back is perfect. Anyway, I’m so glad I decided to return the black chairs and make this change. This space feels right!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I’d love to hear what you think!! xoxo

Sarah here! Nice to meet you. I’m a mama to three, wife to my high school sweetheart and accidental blogger. We recently moved to our little homestead on ten acres and we're loving the small town life in Colorado. I hope this space can inspire you to create a home you love and enjoy the simple moments the most.

    Love the green so much better than the black! If it were me, I’d get matching green paint for the bench. Or even paint to match the white table. Looks super cute Sarah!!

    I like the green chairs! I think the bench throws it off for me though. Other than that the green are way better than the last ones!

    Fran said:

    Beautiful choice for the chairs. It kind of pulls in the wallpaper colors from your dining room. One comment on the bench, I would paint it the same color as the table. Let’s the chairs and floor remain the center of attention. Love your style.

    LOVE! and love the sanded bench! Inspired by Natalie?😂keep it looks so good!!

  25. 8.19.21

    I absolutely think they are perfect. Have you maybe considered an indoor/outdoor rug under the table that is mostly light in color with some green and black accent colors in it? They wipe up like a dream with a soapy dishcloth if the kids spill food on them. You can even take them outside and hose them down and let them dry in the sun good as new. Just a thought…love everything you do!

    • 8.23.21
      Sarah said:

      I have thought about putting a rug there, but it’s just so much easier to vacuum up all the crumbs each day (honestly after each meal with 3 kids!). It just gets way too messy with our crew!

    Hi Sarah-
    I’ve been searching for a white round pedestal dining table like the one you have in your bfast nook. Where did you get yours? Can you tell me how big it is when it’s collapsed?
    Thanks so much- love your style!

    Chairs look perfect! Love the color and how it softens up the space! For me, I would try a rug under the table to add another layer of soft color.

    These green chairs are much better in my opinion. I didn’t like the shorter black option at all. I prefer my chair backs to be higher than the table. I would personally use all chairs and forego the bench. But it does coordinate nicely with the light fixture.

      it’s an old find from Craigslist actually. It’s a Pier 1 table, but I got it on Craigslist for $100 about five years ago!

    I love the look of the new chairs. Gives a vintage farmhouse feel to that nook and the color is also a take off of years ago! Great decision!

      I agree! Thank you Darlene. xo

    Very pretty! I like the natural finish on the bench but I would like to see it on the other side by the window. Then those beautiful chairs can really shine!!

    I think you nailed it on this one. The soft green color is soothing and doesn’t detract from your amazing view.

      I agre Susan, the minty green seems very soothing in this space. The black was just too harsh!!

    Good job Sarah looks very nice and does soften the look nicely

    Personally I’d have to put that bench on the other side or I’d be walking into it.

    These mint chairs suit the spot wonderfully! I think there is something so nice for aiming at a softly harmonious look and it very much reminds me of the chairs my grandmother had around her old table, and I mean in a very good way. Time worn, southern, nostalgic, and sweet chairs. I love those! Sweet seems true to your vibe and style!
