Ikea Poang Arm Chair + Ribbon Detail


Our sweet Charley turned two.  Two!  Where does the time go?  One of her presents was an Ikea Poang Arm Chair for her bedroom.  I like the shape and size and even the natural wood and cushion, but it needed a little personality to fit in Charley’s colorful room. 

POÄNG Children's armchair IKEA Easy to keep clean since the cover can be machine washed. Matches POÄNG armchair in adult size.

I contemplated painting the wood a bright color or using fabric paint to spice up the cushion, but ultimately I chose to add simple ribbon detail using pieces I already had on hand.  A little ribbon and a hot glue gun is all it took.


The chair fits perfectly in the corner by the window and Charley fits perfectly inside it.  It’s actually really sweet seeing her climb up there with a book.




It’s fun adding little bits to Charley’s room as we see how she uses the space.  Like the painted crates as toy storage and a little shelf to hang her necklaces (more on that in a later post).
