Reading Nook. Creating A Cozy Space With Charm

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

So apparently this is the week of updates. I'm game.

Yesterday it was all about the master bedroom, living room and entry.  Today it's all about the reading nook.

I'm honestly pretty happy about this space.  My ideas seem to be coming together and well, that's something to be pretty excited about.

First off, there has only been a little bit of money put towards this space (bonus!).  The chairs are vintage, we inherited them from hubs Grandparents.  The chairs originally had some mustard yellow velvet which I immediately replaced, they honestly look like completely different chairs.  The table was made by hubs Dad back in his high school shop days, I just took a little spray paint to it for a new look.  The artwork is from here and I printed it at home.  So really, all I bought were the frames (Ribba frames from Ikea. get yours here), the spray paint to revamp the table with and fabric for the chairs (bought it from Tonic Living, you can find it here).  The lamp we already had.

I'm so so thrilled with how this space is coming along.  Next is buying a pouf to be used as extra seating or an ottoman (versatility, yo!), moving the rug that is currently in the entry up here and adding a few more pieces to the walls and perhaps some type of shelving system, blankets too, one always needs a cozy blanket when reading.

And that's that!



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a little note!
