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.
