I really enjoy reading, I have been an avid reader since I was very young. I like to be comfy when reading and so last summer my dad found me a Chair and Ottoman set on Craigslist for FREE. I set myself up a "reading" area in the front room, which quickly became "my chair" for sitting in the front room. My dad even told my boys "this is your mom's chair, you are not allowed to sit in it". LOL It was nice, but it was old and getting "beat up". It was also very short, but that is OK as the bookshelf I had was also short. The bookcase was breaking on the top. The Desk Lamp I had was cracking on the top and also like "burning" through.
My "old" Reading Area
I needed to "upgrade" my area and was able to do so for about $100. I went to Fort Pitt Furniture earlier this week to look for a new Chair and Ottoman set. Fort Pitt Furniture is a Hotel Liquidator Warehouse. They get furniture from hotels that are remodeling and sell it to the public for really inexpensive. The furniture is always in excellent condition, as most hotels "remodel" every 2-3yrs. I also got a new Floor Lamp from Walmart and a 3 Shelf bookcase from Menards. I put my new "reading area" together today and I just LOVE IT!!
My "New" Reading Area
The Chair and Ottoman Set were $69 at Fort Pitt Furniture, the Floor Lamp W/Reading Lamp was $12.44 at Wal-Mart, and the 3 shelf bookcase was $15 at Menards. The whole area is much brighter and everything is much bigger! I very much look forward to utilizing "my space" tomorrow and in the days to come enjoying my favorite activity.
