One For The Boys ~ Quick Reading Nook

Today I’m sharing a Quick Reading Nook that I put together for my kids.
This little nook is located in our office/storage room.  To the left of this photo is storage under the stairs and I’m sitting at my desk taking these pictures.  Really it just demonstrates that you can create a space like this just about anywhere.  I love that my kids have a place to read quietly while I’m working.
I utilized some books, pillows and stuffed animals from the boys’ bedroom.  As well as a found curbside bookshelf.
I purchased a soft mat at a thrift store.  And created a floor pillow that says “read”.
I also made a pocket pillow for books and a larger throw pillow to tie into the wall covering.
 I hung a large piece of fabric from my stash to cover the back wall and painted A Very Hungry Caterpillar for the other wall.
My guys love this book.  They quote what the caterpillar ate {not quite correctly} all the time.  I sketched my idea onto a canvas.  Painted a pear.  Added a caterpillar and finally outlined with verses from the book in sharpie.
A Quick Reading Nook can be created anywhere.  I find that my boys really enjoy exploring new places and spaces.  Maybe yours would too?!
p.s The total cost of this nook?  $5.99 for the carpet!

Thanks for following along.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for 20 Boredom Busters for Boys.

    I love how this turned out! Especially those “read” floor pillows! I want to do something kinda like this in the corner of my son’s room. Not so sure if he ever sits still enough but I’ll just keep encouraging and maybe one day…… hah!
