The reading nook is one of our favorite spots in the house! It sits right outside my small laundry room so if there isn’t a pile of clothes needing to be folded (eek!), I can usually find one of the kids sitting and reading a book. I really debated on putting this type of bookshelf up because I was afraid my little guy would try to climb up them or constantly knock down the books but they have yet to destroy it and it’s been in our home for almost 2 years!
We picked up 4 IKEA picture ledges and turned them into a hanging bookshelf! We assembled it in about an hour, it was that quick. They do have a few different sizes, so you can fit them into any space.
I think my favorite part about this bookshelf is that the front of the books are out in the open as opposed to being crammed into a shelf. I also think it makes picking out a book for children a little easier because they can see the pictures right away!
