My IKEA Purchase

Hey everyone! Are you ready to see what I purchased at IKEA? The main reason we went was to get this chair for my library . . .


Ektorp Tullsta Chair
and
White Slipcover




Here she is in my library. . . 


I could just scream! I finally have my little reading corner right by the window.


This is definitely my favorite room in the whole house. It is "totally me" and includes so many things that I love and cherish.

In addition to this new reading corner, I also changed up the other side of the room. It used to look like this . . .


Just wait until you see what I did over here! The chest of drawers has been moved to another room and . . . sorry but you'll have to wait just a bit longer for the reveal. I promise it will be worth it!  : )

  6. Your room is so pretty! It must be heavenly to sit and read in your new chair looking out the window one way and into your perfect room the other.
