Project Nursery: A Reading Nook

I’m working on carving out a little space in Liv’s nursery for a reading nook.

When her Aunt asked me what she could get Liv for Christmas and her birthday (which is just three weeks later) I mentioned a table and chairs for playdough, drawing and reading. We settled on this adorable set and I love how it looks in the nursery!

Chairs by Room & Board, table by Whitney Bros. I searched and searched for a few weeks before finding a set that had both good reviews (ie wasn’t going to break immediately) and at a reasonable price (and maybe had a little design appeal…). It was probably because fo the holidays but everything was sold out. Found the table initially on Amazon but for $50 less at the Today’s Classroom website. PS West Elm currently has the same chairs in white and a natural wood on sale.

I hope to create little book racks out of painted wall plate holders or spice racks, and maybe an area for a big roll of paper. The pictures above are a new addition too, though I’m still trying to decide what photo will go in that top frame before I mat it. The bottom is an adorable card that Liv received when she was brand new – fits perfectly with the nursery and talk about inexpensive art!

The rocker was formerly in that above corner and I’ve been playing around with its new placement.

Here’s the official start of turning Liv’s space slowly into a big girl room. Oh man, it’s too soon.

    I LOVE that table and chairs! So cute! I also want to create a little reading corner for Daniela. We used IKEA spice rack to put her books, but we need a little library, I’m addicted to buying books online ;)

    Her room is lovely and evolving well into a “big girl” space. I was so excited to buy Asha her first little table and chair set last year. It signified her growing from a baby into a fun toddler. PS – she LOVES having a table and chair set her size and I’m sure Liv will too!!

      Liv really digs the new chair and table set! She wants to sit in her chairs all the time. Sometimes she rotates between all three for one activity.:)
