Bedroom Makeover: Reading Chair


In case you haven’t heard the news or read the posts, we are slowly redoing our bedroom.  It all started with a new comforter I fell in love with at Wal-Mart.  Of course, the new comforter doesn’t match our existing decor exactly so thus a makeover is in need.

It’s kind of like the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, which by the way is my favorite book.  You see, if you give a mouse a cookie, he’ll ask for a glass of milk.  When he gets his glass of milk he’ll probably want a straw, then a napkin, until you’re eventually exhausted from getting the mouse all he wants.  The boy’s exhaustion in the book all stemmed from giving the mouse a cookie.

Now if you give me a cookie I definitely won’t ask for a glass of milk but most likely another cookie 🙂  And if you give me a new comforter I definitely won’t be satisfied with just a new comforter.

Next on my bedroom makeover list was a quick and easy reading chair makeover that involved a blanket and pillow.  Yep, it was as easy as that.

The pillow I got at Wal-Mart for $13.  You can order it on-line and have it shipped to a store for free.  The throw I had in the guest bedroom downstairs and I think I got it at Kohl’s or Sam’s several years ago.

    Looks great Brady! I wanted to tell you that I have reserved my upcoming weekend to make a tuffed headboard! I know you mentioned wanting to make one for your master bedroom. Have you done that yet? I will have to send you pictures once I get mine completed!!

      No, I haven’t done it yet. It’s a bit far down on the project list. Do send me pics. I will have to save it and post it with mine when we get around to doing it.
