I’ve shared my living room with you before but today I want to show you how I created a little spot in my living room that I call my quiet corner. It’s where I do my devotionals and have my breakfast in the mornings, it’s where I watch Youtube videos and have my lunch and it’s just generally a really great place to put my feet up and relax.
If you remember it all started last year when I suggested to my hubby that a really great birthday present would be a new comfy chair for the corner of my living room. I really thought I’d be the one to pick it out but to my surprise he went out and picked one out all by himself for me. It’s a “mini” recliner that fits perfectly in the small space I had designated for it. And while it wouldn’t be my first choice of color it is so incredibly comfortable that there was no way that chair was going back.
Quiet Time Corner Organization
To organize the space, I added a side table that I had. It has a drawer which provides extra storage for odds and sods. Remember the divided drawer organizers I told you about a couple of weeks ago? This is where I ended up using the second one. Love it!
On top I keep some
let’s pretend they are real but they are not flowers along with one of my favorite signs and a flameless candle that runs on a timer and turns on at the same time every day for five hours. How cool is that? Set of three for $20 at Costco this year, great deal! I also keep an iPad stand on top where I watch my videos from.
On the shelf below I keep a box of tissues and my bible for quick and easy access.
Next to my chair is a fantastic wicker basket that my husband bought for me some time ago. It’s actually a cute story you can read about HERE. Inside I have all my devotional books I’m currently reading and my notebooks for jotting down notes. I recycled a round container to use for pens and highlighters. Behind that is where I keep my old lady reading glasses :)
The next two things that are super important for creating a comfortable corner is a reading lamp and a cozy blanket to throw on when it gets a little chilly.
Finally is my iPhone power cord. My phone battery lasts hardly any time at all so I attached a Command hook to the side of my side table to keep my cord neatly tucked away when not in use. When I need a quick charge it’s ready and waiting for me. Usually I do this over lunch while I’m watching vlogs on the iPad :)
I love having all my supplies right there handy for when I need them. I know if I didn’t have everything organized and ready to go at my fingertips I wouldn’t be as diligent about having my morning quiet time with God. I never have to look for anything because it all has a home and is easy to find.
Do you have a quiet time corner somewhere in your house?
