Kids Reading Nook | Design On My Mind

Nursery Glider

Happy Monday Friends!  All this winter weather has us bundled up in our house, snuggled up with our favorite blankets and reading our favorite books.  Currently the kiddos have me read this, this and this on repeat!  And in thinking about the design of their new big (toddler) room, I love the idea of setting up a designated little reading nook for them.  You know the ones with adorable tee-pees like this, or cute canapy's placed in a corner like this one.  I recently put these chairs in their room (keep in mind that price is for TWO, which makes for a great price point).  We bought them last fall, and I've been so happy with the quality and sturdiness, they're short enough for the kids to easily get on and off, but big enough for adults to sit in.  And while I find them to be really comfortable, particularly for dining chairs, their metal frame doesn't lend itself for a good lounging option.

So, in looking up options, I love the classic stripes of this one, plus it just looks comfy!  A couple poufs could be a good idea, (I like the knit and color of this one).  And my love of rattan has me loving this option (currently 40% off!).

But the thing I keep coming back to our these.  Unfortunately, the size is just way too big for our space (for a short time they offered a mini version, but they were still too big).  I've been contemplating trying to DIY my own.  With limited sewing skills, I'm hesitant to do it, but I think this updated version of a bean bag could be the perfect thing for our own reading nook (do I dare try it?!)  I've seriously been obsessing over these for awhile now!  Pair it with a fun piece of art, or a cute animal head, we just bouth this one (and only $20!).  Add a colorful pillow (I've got my eye on this one) and viola, a cute comfy ready nook!

Well friends, that's what I'm dreaming of this chilly, dreary Monday.  Hope you're having a great start to your week!
