I know, I know this post has been a long time coming. Remember WAY back when I posted my living room makeover after pics, I mentioned there was still a corner that wasn’t shown? Well now here it is! I had to wait to do all the component posts first because they all lived in this corner and I wasn’t about to jump the gun.
This is where the Bird Cage Lamp fits.
And the Re-purposed Plant Stand
And the Up-cycled Baby Gate too!
OK – Here’s the before. I moved the wine rack thingy to another wall and aside from the chair which stayed put, there really wasn’t anything else in this corner.
And here is the after. Now, it’s a wee reading corner! There’s a place to set your coffee and a spot for magazines and up on that ledge there, is where I’m going to store books. I need to figure out something really cool for there. I could just put up some shelving but I don’t want it to feel too stuffy. I’m kinda stumped for now and the books are just growing into a pile up there. I’m sure sooner or later I’ll find a nifty book storage thingy that will fit just so. Anyway, what do you think? I think it’s much better. I read Little H’s bedtime story in that chair and she loves that we have a reading corner!
