I participated in a campaign sponsored by Wayfair. I received a gift card for participating and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Have you ever tried to sit on the couch and read a book? You get all into it and someone comes by and says, “Mom, I can’t find my soccer shoes!”. So you get up, find the shoes, and then sit back down, find where you left off, start reading again, and it’s “Mom, I’m hungry!”…..you get the picture HERE. Then you go lay in bed to finish your book, and while no one is yelling, you’re falling asleep because you spent half the day looking for soccer shoes and cooking and you’re tired. The perfect solution to this is an outdoor reading nook. You’re away from the kids (and sometimes the husband who acts like a kid), and the fresh air keeps you awake and alert to enjoy your book.
The Perfect Daytime Escape…
I created my outdoor reading nook using my bench and these wondrous pillows from Wayfair. An outdoor reading nook doesn’t have to be a HUGE DIY project. All you need is a bench, some comfy pillows, and a cup of coffee or tea if you’d like. You can get all fancy and paint and monogram your bench to match your house or your pillows, or you can make a reading nook out of a chaise lounge or something else, but the important part is the comfy pillows.
The pillows I chose are the Teen Vogue Ruffle Decorative Pillow, the Rizzy Home Letter Pillow and the Rizzy Home Print Pillow. To add a pop of COLOR to the mix you can add the Sketched Roses Decorative Pillow, the Rizzy Home Number Pillow, or the Rizzy Home Decorative Pillow. As you can see, I really like the damask patterns, and damask goes great with everything. Top that with a little pop of black and you’ve got a stylish and comfortable reading nook. It wasn’t hard to create at all.
My favorite thing about the pillows is that they have hidden zippers in the covers, so if they get a little dirty (it is an outdoor reading nook after all), I just take the covers off, throw them in the wash, and put them back on. They’re well-made, fluffy, and so comfortable to lean on. Wayfair has a huge selection of pillows in all sorts of shapes, colors, and patterns, so you’ll be sure to find something you love there. While you’re at it, you can find other items at Wayfair to spruce up your outdoor reading nook. I already had a bench that was perfect for the project, but you could even start with one from Wayfair. They have a big selection of outdoor furniture too.
No matter what colors or styles you like, the important part is that you get to keep some time to yourself. Often when we have children, we sacrifice so much for them that we forget who we are. If you find yourself wishing you could just sit down and read something that doesn’t involve Dr. Seuss or the instructions to the kids’ homework, you should make yourself a reading nook too.
