When my sister moved into her apt she had a little nook in her bedroom that left her stumped. It was an odd size, but large enough to be used. The main issue was that it wasn’t very wide and the bedroom door swung into it making furniture placement difficult. She originally had a desk in that area, but we decided it to replace it with a reading nook instead.
We were on a budget, but I still wanted to make an impact with a large piece of artwork since there would not be a lot of furniture in the area. I considered making her piece, but at the end of day I fell in love with a piece by Parima Studios.
Since I was on a budget I clearly could not pick up an original piece. I also couldn’t stretch my budget for a canvas. A little light bulb went off when I saw that they had a section of wall tapestries. Tapestries start at $39 for a 51″ x 60″ canvas and that was within my budget. Now the only issue was that I hated the look of wall tapestries. When they are loose on the wall they just look like something out of a dorm room and that was not the look I was going for.
So, Jon picked up some 1″ x 2″ sections of pine and L brackets to make a frame and then we simply stapled the wall tapestry to the frame.
Doesn’t it look perfect in the reading nook!
I picked up the cozy ottoman at a consignment for $30! I wanted a rug to ground the space and I found this beauty on RUGSUSA. It’s currently not up on their site, but I found it here.
The accent chair was picked up in a thrift store for practically pennies and the accent pillow was on clearance at Target.
I think my favorite part is the little heart in the artwork. I love the impact it made and it was under $50 for the whole thing!
