Pool House Dining Area

I’ve been sharing bits and pieces of the pool house over here. Mainly, because I’m showing you the spaces that are actually complete-ish. It’s all still definitely a work in progress, but it’s getting there! I have another little corner to share with you today. This time let’s head upstairs to the bunkroom and the pool house dining area.

Like always here is a fun BEFORE shot of this space. Wow, I had to look back in my phone to 2016 to find this one!

AFTER. I tried to get the same angle here. There were 2 windows on either side of a wasp-infested barndoor. Also, that chimney wasn’t connected to anything below so we were never sure about what they used it for.

Now that we replaced the rickety barndoor with french doors it’s so much brighter in this space.

I was originally thinking of a round table up here with four chairs, but once everything was built we had plenty of room for a larger rectangle table. Not to mention with six beds in the bunk area, seating six at the table just sort of made sense.

I know the angles of these shots make it look like you would smack your head on the angled ceiling, but my 5’9″ self is totally comfortable sitting in the chairs in the back.

House and Room

I wanted to warm things up by adding a wood table. I found this table on sale a few weeks ago. Bonus – with curbside pickup I was able to order online and pick it up that same day rather, than deal with the crazy shipping times everything else has.

Side note I just got word the bunkhouse bedding is on the way – cue happy dance! So hopefully I will be able to share the bunks on the other side of the room looking cute in the next few weeks.

I’m also being very strategic in not showing the snack bar area, since all of the shoe molding is painted the wrong color. The painter is supposed to show up this week to fix it and then I can share that too!

A dining room table

Ok back to the dining area. I’ve been pretty consistent with my attempts at practicality in this space. I want to be able to relax by the pool and not constantly be worrying about my adorable well-behaved children destroying the furniture up here. ;) So these chairs were a perfect choice.

I love the simple modern style. They are plastic so wet butts will be welcome here and they stack! I love that feature if we ever want to store them out of the way easily.

They are also surprisingly really comfy. As comfy as plastic chairs get I guess.

I added this little bowl of faux grass from HomeGoods, for a fun pop of color.

I shared these prints a few weeks back from Blakely Made. I love them tucked in this little corner here. This is really the only wall space available to hang art, and the colors are perfect.

We have already had a family game night just to test things out. I’m so excited to use this space this summer too!
