Ever since I moved both of the girls into one room it’s become quite apparent how much stuff between them that they actually have, and slightly terrifying! Ever since I made Ellie her very cute & cosy homework nook it seemed the opposite corner of the girls room had became quite randomly, a dumping ground. I needed that to change!
So me being impulsive and unstoppable once I get a project in mind to do, I was off! I popped online on the hunt for a pair of furniture pieces to go into what would soon be, a book nook for my girls. Now with my other DIY projects, this one was also on a budget and with finding a few bits that I liked over on Argos I went for it. Literally. Annabelle and I jumped in a taxi and off we went! I’m that impulsive I’m sure I put my darling man’s head away half the time!
I decided on these two pieces for the girls new reading corner…
The Maine small deep book case I found would be perfect. I love a deep bookcase because childrens books come in all shapes and sizes and I wanted to be assured they’d all fit beautifully. I did consider getting two bookcases, but once I caught a glimpse of the Beech effect sling effect Bookcase I knew it was a perfect match for the other bookcase.
Assembling them was fun, especially with a toddler who loves to climb and two older children who just love to ‘help’, but we all got there in the end and we think they look awesome!
