Room Makeover Series: My Reading Corner

Welcome to the first post of my Room Makeover Series!! This makes it sound a whole lot more dramatic than it actually is (basically just me buying odd bits for my room). Anyway, the first thing I wanted to share was this addition of a 'reading corner', which has also turned into a bit of a 'sit on my phone scrolling through Insta' corner, but at least it's not turned into a chairobe yet (chair-wardrobe).
