This kids reading nook is the cozy, quiet space we probably all wished we had when we were kids. Heck, a small, enclosed mini-sanctuary like this would be pretty nice even for adults.
This cool little bedroom reading corner was created by Charlotte Smith, the DIY blogger behind Ciburbanity. It’s part of our DIY Challenge series in which we challenge some of our favorite decor and DIY bloggers to create fun, practical and clever DIY projects starting with a single material– in this case, plywood.
Charlotte has the full tutorial here for you, including a little help with the math and a suggested beverage to sip as you create this kids reading nook for your children or grandchildren (or yourself!).
There’s something about a nook that gets my creative DIY juices flowing. At a recent trip to our local children’s museum, they had a little corner area and my kids immediately settled in for some quiet reading and calm. Key word here is “calm,” so ever since I’ve had this idea percolating for a corner nook in my son and daughter’s shared bedroom.
Good news is that this whole thing took me one weekend and most of that time was spent waiting for paint to dry. Read: it’s not particularly labor intensive!
