I decided to recreated my home one space at a time. Today’s space is my reading area in my bedroom. I did not really have a space to read other than sitting up in bed and this was too much of a bother for my husband so I decided to take this chair that has lived in the corner of our bedroom and turn it into a reading/journaling space. I didn’t purchase anything new for this space just walked around my home and studio building and pulled things that I thought would fit here. I added a small stool from IKEA and placed a crocheted doily that I had in the closet and a couple of small hat boxes that had been in the kitchen. I found the lamp in my studio building and the black and white throw is a Liberty of London shawl from Target that I have had hanging in my closet for a while. I made the square throw that is in covering the seat is one that I made a few years back when I could still crochet with our my carpel tunnel making my arm blaze up in pain. The Ottoman is a vintage sewing box that I have had for a few years and found it in a local thrift store, for a steal. The Face painting is one of my original mixed media paintings and the other pieces are ones that I gleaned around the house.
Here is the inside of the vintage sewing box. I have turned it into a place that I can store my journals and a few supplies to have on hand so that I can journal before I go to bed.
Here is a few close-ups of my supplies.
I got a chance for a Michael’s run today and picked up a few journaling supplies from their dollar spot. I love getting a bargain.
Please pardon the picture quality these were taken with my phone camera. I hope you all have a blessed weekend.
