A Cozy Spot with a New Painting

This spot in our kitchen has been a process.  First there was the free table and stools from a friend's parents who were moving.  Then we installed the red light over the table; I really wish it was a translucent red, so that it would glow when the light was on.  Then I made red slipcovers for the stools to hide the boring beige.  Finally, I bought an original oil painting from Anna of Pleasantview Schoolhouse.

People perch there while I'm cooking, or I stop there with a cookbook and a snack. I leave the parts of the Sunday New York Times that I haven't read yet on the table, and read at them throughout the week.  I pull Phoebe's high chair out there for lunch and have a cozy tête-a'-tête with her, sitting sideways so she puts her feet on my knees.  It's a fun spot.

Looks great! I love the coziness. I have about 11 oil paintings I need to hang somewhere.....maybe I'll take your lead and just DO IT.

Anna's painting looks perfect there and matches your stool covers just right. It's a great little space you've made, Margo!
