Here is what that reading corner looked like before:
The first thing I did was to move the Ikea trofast unit into the Babes' room. That freed up some space for a spot to read.We had a child sized version of the Ikea poang chair in our living room, so I brought that into Sweetie Pie's room.
I just put a pink blanket on top of the original Ikea cover so it would match her room (and hide any spots).
I had also found this cool bright pink storage ottoman at a yard sale for $4. Another seating option, or she can prop up her feet, and I love the extra storage. Can never have too much storage.
I made this little pillow from a fleece vest she had out grown. I just used an envelope type pillowcase tutorial (can't remember where I found it online).
And of course you've already seen the LPS house hanging up next to it. It's such a cute and cozy space now.
Oh, and remember the framed book covers? I had one on the wall and one on top of the bookcase.
We decided to put her CD player on top of the bookcase so I hung up the other framed book cover.
I love this little spot in her room. What do you think?
And no, I'm not done with her room yet. There will be a few more decorating changes to come.
