Home Sweet Home Reading Corner
We moved Lu's furniture around in her room to try to better use the space. The room looks so much more spacious now.
I wanted to create a little corner in her room for reading and playing. I figured out a way to make removable felt wall decals. This really might totally change the way that I decorate. Seriously. I tested the decals and they left absolutely no marks on my wall when I removed them. Can you imagine the possibilities? This would be so great for an apartment, but also for more temporary events such as a party dessert table. Or what about a felt board for your kids to play on? No need to cover a canvas like I did here. You could just create a felt board right on the wall. I'm pretty sure my kids need a felt Christmas tree for the corner of their room next Christmas. I'm super excited to tell you how to make felt wall decals. You can find the tutorial here.
I drew the house shape on with washable markers. I'm not sure how washable they will be over time, but I have more purple paint that I can use to touch up the walls if need be.
I also made a few prints inspired from some of my favorite books as a kid: The Hobbit, the Boxcar Children, and Harry Potter. My kids are too young right now to appreciate them, but I hope that they will grow to love these stories as I did. Reading was, and is to this day, one of my favorite pastimes. I hope I can share that with my kids as they grow.
I'm really happy with how my reading nook turned out. Here are some more pictures below.
Here's a closer look of the prints that I made:
