I showed the refinished footstool in my last post, but was unable to show the full reading corner because I had to finish this awesome mirror first.
All you home decorators know when you have a vision in mind you can not sleep until you have it finished! I have been wanting a reading area in my living room since we moved here & the rocking chair that I was using just wasn’t comfortable enough.
I have long admired the IKEA Ektorp line of furniture that I see all over the beautiful blogs & now that my kids are grown I was able to get the white chair that I have been wanting & the best thing is the slipcover is washable! I set it up in the corner of the living room by the fireplace.
As I do a lot of reading at night, I knew lighting was important. I had this black reading lamp that wasn’t being used and it fits perfectly!
I found the mirror at a thrift store for $12.50 on half-price Wednesday. Here is the before:
