Reading Nook - In Progess

Since my son moved out, my daughter and I switched rooms. I now, finally, have the Master Bedroom.  Therefore there is much more room to play with.  My kids had 2 bookcases from Ikea in their room.  The backs fell off.  A backless bookcase doesn't work too well in a kids room, but it is fine for me (for now). I have arranged the books by genre so they will be easy to find.  But it is a bigger job than I anticipated.  I painted the wall in that corner, but I am not done with the room. That will take about a month to complete.

The chair is an old guy, and I mean OLD.  The chair is 50 years old.  My parents had this chair before my brother was born.  I have a slip cover over it because it is in sorry shape.  I am planning to get a new one, but there is a small problem.  My doorway is only 28 inches wide and there is a wall on either side of the door, so there is no angling the chair in. It has to be able to go straight in.  Narrow comfortable chairs are not easy to find, so I'm holding on to this one for now.

I also need a table and reading lamp.  All in good time.

Haha I love Anne's comment.

Hi Liz!!! I have not really been ignoring you, I have read all your posts. I have just been crazy busy this summer. This will be called "the summer that never quit".
The good news - my daughter got married!

Looks like you have been busy too. I like the reading nook so far. Give C. A hug for me. It was nice of her to give you your room back, lol.

It's good to see you back clogging again.
I've missed you.

Hahahahaha oops... Blogging, not clogging!
Unless you've taken up clogging in your spare time?

Hi Anne. I'm in the process of moving books from my overcrowded living room bookcases to these book cases. It is taking a while. LOL!

Congrats on your daughters marriage Wendy.

I'm glad to be 'clogging' LOL!

I hear some Michael Flatly in the background.
