I am so excited about having this little corner for Patton! I have been seeing these little reading nooks all over Pinterest and kept thinking someday when I have a house.... but then I realized I had this unused corner of my living room that was filled with wires that were sort of covered by a lamp. Then all of his toys were piled up by the TV which also looked terrible. This was the perfect solution! I get my nook and my living room looks cleaner and neater. We keep just the right amount of books and toys in there that it makes clean up so easy! Also, bonus, patton loves to be in there. I always find him sitting on his little rug looking at books or sitting on his chair. I just love it. I was able to put it together with just things I had at the house already. the bookshelf is an Ikea spice rack my mom gave me, the chalkboard sign was a placard that I had left over from a failed craft project. Of course his red cat bench and the tin drink bucket I bought a long time ago for a party. The only thing I had to buy was the rug which I got at Target for 10 bucks. I'm just sad I didn't think of this earlier and I'm really hoping our next apartment will have a little space for this.
