Depending on the age, this could be considered a "Study Nook" :) Little ones need time to learn and get lost in good books with their parents. Take some time and create small cozy places to teach and connect before they are all grown up!
DIY Kids space reading nook~ Rain Gutter Kid’s Bookshelves This could be the best 're-purposing' project I have seen so far.what a great idea and the books, or whatever, would not fall off the 'shelves'.
Mommo Design has a bunch of inspiration for girly reading nooks. These quiet corners contain fluffy pillows, rugs, cushions, usually a canopy, and of course lots of books. I think the idea is very cute and I'd love to do this for my daughter's room.
