Fall Project: Set Up a Book Nook

Interested in setting up a fabulous reading nook in your home? Last year around this time MPMK put together an entire book week. We covered topics like how to find great bookshow to celebrate with books, even how to craft with books, and – my favorite – how to set up a book nook. I thought I’d repost our finds today for all of you who missed it the first time around. With fall and the school year just around the corner, now is the time to start plotting a spot for your kids’ very own book nook.


Today I’ve rounded up a super-sized group of images in the hopes of encouraging you to set up the perfect kiddo reading spot in your home.  I’m doing this one look book style so click on the photos for more info… Enjoy!

Time to get those bean bag chairs sewn up for my kids. Exactly what I wanted to do with them! Thanks for the kick in the butt.

Wow! What a great collection of ideas! We are moving next week, and I am hoping to implement a book nook into some corner of the house. So this was perfect timing for me!

I love all of these! Thanks for the inspiration, I just returned yesterday with some Ikea Bekvam spice racks so this post was very timely for me!
