We have two dormers upstairs and they create a perfect spot for a little reading nook. One of them is in the nursery and I have plans for it but the other is in our upstairs hallway and was just sitting empty. We have an old futon mattress so I decided to put it to use (because God KNOWS it is not going to be used anymore!!).
I slipped it inside a spare duvet cover I had and threw some pillows on for lounging. I also happened to have some paper lanterns left over from a rehearsal dinner I helped decorate, so I hung a few of those as well. I still want to add some pictures and maybe book ledges but for the time being my boys are loving their “hideout!”
