Thank you, Tara for having me guest post today at A Spectacled Owl! I’m really excited to be here! I want to share this reading nook I made for my daughter for her room. I love this reading nook idea because it takes little space, and adds charm and character while encouraging good reading habits to our little ones.

I stumbled upon some photo ledges that I thought would fit perfectly for this project. I also found a fun cherry blossom decal and added it to the plain walls along with two photo ledges at a height that would make it easy for my toddler to reach. I hung them off set from one another. I purchased and painted some wooden letters in different styles to spell out “books” and “read” with acrylic craft paint. I didn’t originally plan on it saying “read books” but I found an old curb side pick-up frame that I thought would look cute around the words and went with it!

My daughter actually picks up and reads her books more often now because they are displayed. No longer hidden in her organization cubes, her books are now easily accessible and a constant reminder that she has them!
