New Sitting Area...

I have always wanted a little sitting area in my bedroom. Yesterday I pulled one of my wicker rockers off the porch and cleaned it up. My husband painted it for me and I put it in a corner in our bedroom. I really like how it turned out.
Ooops I need to hide that cord.

Looks like it was meant to be. I love how it pulls the colors out of your drapes.

Love it! You had the perfect little spot for a chair, didn't you? And it was a great idea to use your wicker.:)

What cord?? :) It looks cozy and all ready for a little relaxing.

I do love wicker! Any color of wicker. I found an old second hand wicker chair for $13.00 and put it in my guest room. There is something warm and inviting about wicker.

Thank you for your visit and your comment. I wish I could say we are used to quakes..but I don't think we ever get used to them and I have lived here my entire life.
Once when I was about twelve, one hit and I was sitting with my baby sister of about 7 months. I grabbed her off the bed (I thought the hot water tank was exploding, and ran, tried to run, for the front door. I remember when I opened it the huge oak tree's outside were swaying so much that they were nearly touching the ground ...and down the road ran my mother, shoes off and dress flying!
:) Poor thing! She was worse off than I was.
A few things were broken but other than that...we were fine.

I am using one of my wicker porch chairs the same way, to create a little reading corner in the bedroom. Yours looks nice and cozy. Looks like your wall color is about the same as my new living room color too, we have the same taste!
