Creating a childrens reading corner

reading corner

My little boy is a little adventurer and loves to climb chairs, sofas, boxes, slides, steps, ladders, coffee tables …….. need I go on? One of the items that he particulary likes to climb on, is the old nursing chair in his bedroom. “Its gotta go!” I cried to my husband! That same weekend we went into Aldi to find some planters for the front of the house and whilst in the store I picked up one of their weekly flyers. They advertised some new playroom accessories that would be available from Sunday 30th May (still available now in store and online!). This included the following items –

Playroom Rug – £29.99 (available in pink spots, grey stars & blue clouds)

Playroom Beanbag – £16.99 (available in pink spots, grey stars & blue stars)

Playroom Cushion – £8.99 (available in pink spots, grey stars & blue stars)

Playroom Teepee – £39.99 (available in pink spots, grey stars & blue stripes)

I felt inspired to move the nursing chair out of the bedroom once and for all and in its place, create a lovely reading corner for the little tyke. I purchased the teepee, beanbag and playroom cushion in grey (with it being quite a fashionable colour at the moment and it goes with everything).

A great big comfy beanbig to complete the look!

Why did you not get the rug I hear you cry? Well, the rug looked of perfectly good quality, but we already had a rug in the room from Ikea (you can see a teeny bit of it in the top picture).

The little tyke was very excited when he first got into his room and saw the big changes, but he has slowly gotten used to it. It is a lovely calm and quiet spot for us to sit and read together before he has a nap or goes to bed. We love it! Inside the teepee I have placed the new grey plaroom cushion with stars and a few of his cushions from Ikea (sun cushions and cloud cushions).

I am really pleased with the end result and it has definitely helped with the bedtime routine. My little man is changing all the time and we need to adapt with him.

What do you think to our little reading corner?

I hope you all have a lovely evening folks, ta ta for now xx
