We had some paper lanterns left from two apartments ago, and I decided to paint some whales on it. I made a template based on his name sign/mobile, traced it onto the lantern and then painted it. It was much easier than I anticipated.
We flip flopped his reading corner with the table and chairs and hung up the light to make a cozy reading spot. The light has been a hit, leading to many exclamations of "Whe-ale."

I will be honest, I'm not exactly sure what to put in those cubbies. We've had those baskets all along, and there are socks in one, but the other is empty. I put his animals in the middle just to put something, but we shall see. I like the idea of having books there, but I think his book box is still more functional at this age and it won't fit in there. Anyhoo, still thinking.
I originally planned to move the chair and ottoman into the Poppy's room as well, but once we got the second chair I change my mind. But that will be revealed in her room tour! For now have some pictures of the chair and its little reader.
