I have a confession to make: Jude wasn't really using his mini lounger very often. But then, in the spirit of the William Morris Project, I was cleaning out our linen closet and I came across some red sheers that I forgot I had, instead of donating them, I found a way to make them useful. Jude's nursery is slowly becoming a "big boy's room." With the crib gone, I had space to install a cozy little reading nook.
See, I knew I had been hoarding red curtain sheers for a reason. I attached four sheers and a few lengths of ribbon to a 12" diameter embroidery hoop. I hung the knotted ribbons from a small hook in the ceiling.
With the addition of Jude's mini lounger, a comfy fort was born. We still plan to hang an IKEA spice rack for book storage ...

P.S.- For anyone wondering: the first couple of weeks were a rough transition from a crib. Not with bedtime, but with middle of the night awakenings. Things have since mellowed out, with only the occasional late night "Mom in" request. Thanks to all my kind readers for their support and suggestions. Change is rarely easy, thank goodness it is by definition, temporary.
