Breakfast bar

Remember the weird table that was in our apartment...

Well, I finally got an okay picture to show you what we did with it!
We used the same table top, got longer legs (some simple 4x4s worked perfect), painted it and reattached it to the wall.
Then, added a few bar stools and *poof* we have an adorable breakfast bar!
I love it!
I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it!

It is so much more functional and now we actually use it!
I end up using it for the laptop and magazine reading just about every morning after work.
Its perfect because its far enough away from the bedroom that if I want to listen to music or watch something online, I won't wake Bob up.
(I work midnights and Bob gets a little cranky when I wake him up when I come home.)

I also use it to hang out and chat with Bob while he's cooking! He really enjoys cooking so I get to enjoy not cooking a lot : ) It also extends our counter you can tell the kitchen is really tiny and this is nice to have so I can help out with some prep stuff, yet not get in his way.
