MY OWN LITTLE CORNER

I am a firm believer that we all need our own little space where no others can invade our bubble. In our home (which is rather small) every inch is occupied, so this corner is my own space, mine, ALL MINE!!! lol I have many ideas for this corner but budget just won't allow those ideas to put into play at this time, so with the inspiration I gained from reading over at Angela's blog called "ImagineCozy" (you can link to her blog from my list at the right hand side) I feel I did a achieve my special corner. As you can see in the before picture the corner lacked coziness and felt so uninviting. Off shopping I went, "yep" shopped in my own house and came up with these items with the exception of the cream drum stool that sits under the old sewing table, I decided to return the blue\green one when I fell in love with this little cream drumstool, the detail on this little baby just told me I had to have it. Even though I wasn't able to do what I had originally planned for this corner, I must say that im pretty happy with how it turned out and rather proud of myself for not spending a dime to do it, actually I came out ahead when I returned the blue/green drum stool as the new one was half the price. My corner is now an inviting cozy spot for me to visit, read, watch tv, blog and just sit and have a quiet moment.

The blue/green stool looked very beer keggish. The mirror is a nice addition.

love it, could you move them a bit closer together? Is there still a lamp on the other side? I have been wondering where you were, you were missed. Glad you made it by today, now, don't be a stranger.
