Attempting Aloha: Playroom Reading Nook

Playroom Reading Nook


I finished the kids' playroom reading nook. It was fun for me to put it together, and it ended up using all different kinds of crafts in the process. :)

The READ sign is a play off of Robert Indiana's famous LOVE sign. Also famously replicated in Pottery Barn's Christmas NOEL sign (that retails for $150!!). I'll give more details on that, the curtain, and the beanbags in upcoming posts.

You might recognize my DIY Wire Basket as well as the Pleated Basket Liner and the Pottery Barn Kids Lamp Knock-off. :)

What do you think?! I'll be thrilled even if I come in third. It was a great competition, and my girls just LOVE their new playroom. We've still got a few more things to finish up on it, but it's such a great space now!

Oh, I love it! Now was that a closet before? I love the ruffle curtain too. I'd love to have you share this at my blog party Tuesday's Nursery - its for all ages of kids decor. I'll keep the linky open for several days since the party is a once per month - First Tuesday each month. I hope you can make it, Nan

What a great little hideout space! Love the ruffle curtain and the little lamp! We have red READ letters in our playroom too! Cute!

Absolutely perfect. I would have LOVED a space like this as a kid! Heck, I would love it now as a grown up. Can I bring a book and come over to read? :)

Good luck on the CSI contest!

Where did you get the bookshelves?

At July 31, 2012 at 8:16 AM , Blogger Attempting Aloha said...

I actually built them! They were originally really odd, x-shaped bookshelves, and I cut them apart, re-sized and redesigned everything, and put them together. I was going to do a tutorial and forgot! Are you a builder? I might have to get the plans together...
