Creating a Book Nook in My Son’s Room

I told y’all on Monday that I was lucky enough to be part of the Pottery Barn Kids & PBS Kids Book Nook Challenge where six bloggers were given goodies from Pottery Barn Kids to create a reading nook in their homes.  Y’all will get to vote on which nook you like best and the blogger who wins will get to give one of her readers a $500 gift card to Pottery Barn.  Cool, huh?!

The space I’m working with is my son’s room, but first I had to clean out the toys and stuffed animals!

The reading nook will be in the corner of the room where the rocking chair was.  The chair has been moved to my bedroom, can’t give it up yet- still lots of rocking and snuggles to be had with my favorite 3 year-old!

The nook will be so cool for James with the rugby play tent canopy in a bold blue and white stripe and the red madras anywhere beanbag chair.  He is going to totally dig getting in there to read!

I’ll add the Cameron 2-shelf bookshelf to the wall where the toy storage bin used to be. 
The red task lamp was also chosen.
Along with this adorable Dalmation bookend.

I showed you last week how the room looks now with the walls painted dark blue and the ceiling light blue.   

And now we also have a Gallery Wall.
I can’t wait to get everything finished so we can start enjoying our books and I can share it with you.  Friendly challenges like this are very nice opportunities, but I can’t help but hope that the nook I create is special enough for the challenge.  :/ What matters most is that James likes it right?!
