Reading Corner

I am so totally failing on the whole Friday Picture Posts! For that, I apologize. I feel like the days are slipping right on by. I can't believe it's already Thursday tomorrow! Altered 2 is due June 11th, and because of that, I think time is speeding up. That's how deadlines work, right? It never feels like you have enough time!

I'm doing a quick post on a project I've been working on here at home for about two months now. It's my reading corner in my office. I've been dreaming forever and ever about having a reading corner with a big comfy chair, and I finally have it!



I am in love with the shelves above my chair. They're made from one board I bought at Lowe's for like $10, I think. And I had someone at Lowe's cut it for me. The shelve brackets were $2 a piece. I painted everything white and husband installed it for me. Such a swell dude. Here's a behind-the-scenes look from the installation process:

That's one good looking handyman.


And here I am, supervising. 


The items on the shelves I already had, or had been collecting for some time. I bought the giraffe at an estate sale. I've had the glass bottles for forever (I think a few of them came from yard sales). The art my parents bought me for my birthday from Society 6 and Etsy. The frames I got 50% off from Joanne's. The old books my aunt gave me six years ago. They've been packed away ever since then. Not anymore! And the old binoculars were the husband's grandfather's from WWII. 

I know I already said it, but I'll say it again---I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS CORNER! I've already written a ton of Altered 2 there. And I think I will dedicate A2 to that chair.

  1. So cute. I've been toying with the idea of doing this to my guest room. Since I rarely have guests. Inspired!

    1. Thanks Jo! I needed a comfy spot to work when I couldn't possibly sit my butt at the computer desk. :D This works out well. And you totally need a reading corner! Everyone needs one.
