What room at home is your quiet space?

Do you have that special place at home where you go to relax? Mine is my back patio. It's cozy and quiet. I could sit back there all day enjoying the cool breeze, swinging on the porch swing, reading, snacking, or just relaxing. Here is how I did it: I hung a drop cloth curtain on an extra long shower curtain rod by folding it over and pinning it every six inches, to make the pocket.

I probably could have sewn it, but I just wanted to get it up. I then draped a colorful quilt over the porch swing. I added some floral pillows, an indoor/outdoor rug, pulled out an ottoman and covered it with a throw. I wanted to hang the painting, but the light was in the way, so I just leaned it against the wall. Eventually, I will add a bistro set on the opposite end to balance out the space. I pulled out an extra dining room chair and found a tray in the closet and added a few plants.

Create a space at home where you can get away. Even if it's a small space. It's good to be able to sit and unwind after a long day of whatever your day consists of. Look around your home for things to recreate your space. The only thing I had to buy was the rug and the long shower rod, both from Amazon.

Share some of your quiet space creations.
