I have the day off today, so decided it was time to get the reading nook set up exactly how I've been wanting it. Reed helped me hang the shelves and I arranged them with books, plants, etc. I got that side table a few weeks ago at Marc's for $14.99. I am going to paint it, but haven't decided on a color yet. Maybe red? You may remember the little wooden bowl planter from this post.
All of these items (minus the actual plants) were thrifted - the cream vase on the left documented here for 99-cents. The shelves came from Lowe's.
Above are some of the baby/parenting books I want to read. After I finish Parenthood on Netflix, my goal is to start reading them.. :) I got that little succulent from Donzell's for $1.50 and then thrifted that shot glass for 40-cents to put it in.
As far as the room paint goes, we painted most of the room a really light gray and then did a blue accent wall. It was a risk but we both love how the blue turned out!
The living room is really starting to come together and this house is really feeling like home.
I hope you have a great week!
