Hello! You may recognize this chair from November’s Fab Flip.
It turns out that this chair is perfect in my daughter’s room as the beginning of a whimsical reading corner for her.
I found this cute neck roll pillow from Fairfield World to start building our pillow collection for this corner.
I chose orchid watercolor triangles from Spoonflower to start the color palette that I’m working with for this room
These colors fit in well with the whites, pinks, light purples & light blues already in there. I took the roll pillow & measured out this sweet looking fabric & created a “candy wrapper” like look as the start of her pillow collection. I finished the ends with a gray grosgrain ribbon. There are touches of gray in this room & wait till you see what I use for her dresser next month!
I re-covered the seat cushion part with, get this, an old heavy bright white t-shirt! I love the feel of t-shirt jersey bed sheets so I thought I would give this a try & see how it goes. It fits perfectly & feels really soft so we’ll see how it lasts on this chair. I love to upcycle with materials I have on hand so this was a fun project to try that concept out.
I’m looking forward to building this corner up & having a bohemian vintage look to finally finish off this room. So many pieces have been put aside so I’m excited to finally have time to complete her room! 🙂
I would love to have a flowy fabric coming from this corner in a tent like style to add a dreamy look here too. I’m on the hunt for a large quantity of lace or something nice & light. Let me know if you happen to find any for me 😀
As I’m doing an online search there some great inspiration at this website here. Which one catches your eye? I think I’m leaning towards this one:

I’m using an old doll house as a book case & have another one that I may actually be able to do something like this 🙂 How cool!
Lots of fun ideas are coming to mind to finish off this corner. What are some things you would fill in here that maybe I haven’t thought of yet? If you have reading corners post them on my Facebook page to show me your themes & styles.
Now go check out the links to all of the AMAZING Fab Flippin projects & hope your March is going well!
