Lately I've been determined to wrap up half finished projects around the house. My daughter's room is one of those spaces. It felt almost done, but there was just something missing and I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Do you ever feel that way about a room? I decided it needed a little more layering to make it feel more pulled together. So I started by creating a small little reading nook using stuff we already had. Free projects are the best.
First I hung these clear acrylic shelves on the wall. They were originally used on the side of a cabinet in my daughter's nursery at our last house. They had been sitting in her closet for forever and I figured it was time to put them to good use. It is actually 4 smaller shelves and I just butted two of them together for each shelf to form one longer shelf. You can hardly tell in person. You can find the shelves here. They are great for playrooms too!
I also added this stump from my Home Depot Style Challenge last year. I gave it a few coats of gold spray paint so it would fit in better with this space. If you've poked around this blog at all you'll realize that I love earthy things and I felt like this was a great way to incorporate something earthy while still keeping it feminine.
It was a quick and easy little project and it's already made this room feel more finished. I love that my little girl now has a special spot to read too! I'm finishing up a few more little projects and hope to do an "official" reveal of this space soon!
