I'm thinking of something like this for where my stairs are now. When we move the stairs I want to keep the wall with the open view to the living room. I think it would be a great breakfast area for the kids before school
The breakfast counter is simply a wood slab that sits on a thrifty but attractive base made of plumbing pipes. Swiveling iron stools were scored at the Long Beach flea market for $200 and then upholstered in outdoor fabric.
