Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I hope you are having a good week. Today I have a quick post about a little reading area I made for our toddler. He LOVES to read books in his Pottery Barn Kids chair so I created a little reading nook for him in the corner of our living room. I’ve been looking for a small end table to put next to the chair so he would have a place to rest his sippy cup and a few books but couldn’t really find anything that was durable enough or the right size. Also, I knew whatever I put there wouldn’t stay for long because our baby is very “busy” (as nice people put it) and quite rough on anything in his path (much like a tornado). So it needed to be something that could weather the storm and we could easily set up over and over again as needed.
I saw a cute picture on Pinterest a few years ago of a wire trash can that someone spray painted and turned upside down to use as an end table for a bed. Well I didn’t need something quite that big but the wire basket that we use to hold his sports balls was perfect!
|I found this basket at Paul Michael for less than $20. It’s light weight and about a foot and a half tall.|
So I emptied it, turned it upside down, and made a mini-end table out of it for the large size Pottery Barn Kids Chair…
