The hub of the home

In many houses the kitchen is the hub of the home and now with our extension and the new living space next to the kitchen we are no exception, though probably more exact for us it is the coffee table between the kitchen and family room.

This old table was put here quite by accident, just to get it out of the way but as soon as we did the kids gravitated to it. They do all their drawing and craft on it, play games and eat lunch and snacks. It is the perfect height for them and right in the middle of all the action.

The blue stools you can see in the picture above are great too as they are soft and the tops lift off with storage underneath. It helps that I got them for $10 each from Woolworths.

So we spent the weekend enjoying this space and Saturday watching our builder digging to prepare for installing the deck this week. So excited!


  1. What a great spot... and loving your floor-length windows. They let in so much lovely light. Our girls spend a heap of time at the craft table in our kitchen too... I'm thankful it's there every day! gxo

  2. cool table, and i love that you've left it there, looks great also lisa xx

  3. I'd love an extension to allow us to sit in the living area and look right out onto the garden! Your place is looking lovely!

  4. The table looks great & the kids are having lots of fun. The room is beautiful. KP

  5. Isn't it funny how a missplaced furniture like the coffee table becomes such an important place that you don't want to change it?
    Love the idea of a table like that for craft work. I'm already thinking of how to achieve that at my place.

  6. Brilliant! Love how the table was kept nearer while not so obvious to guests. Have a wonderful day, Kellie xx

  7. Leave it to kids to come up with such clever solutions! So cute. The house is looking great! It's quite a project you've taken on. Thanks for stopping by my blog
