My daughter has always dreamed of having her own library. I think her love of reading started at a young age. She would always want me to read to her before bed, and she was always excited to go to the library. She would pick out so many books that we could barely carry them all home.
Once she started learning how to read on her own, there was no stopping her. She would devour book after book, and it was amazing to watch her. In fact, when she was just seven years old, she expressed a desire to have a library more than any other birthday celebration.
While most kids her age were asking for parties with their friends, my daughter wanted nothing more than to be surrounded by books. All she asked for was a floor-to-ceiling high bookshelf for her room. She was overjoyed when her wish was granted, especially when she found out that her dad built it himself. Even now, she still appreciates the gesture and loves looking at her bookshelf whenever she enters her room.
A few months before her 16th birthday, my husband and I agreed to continue supporting her love for books. We believe that books can provide her with the knowledge and wisdom she needs to grow into a successful and well-rounded individual. We will continue to encourage her to read as much as she can, and we are confident that she will find great value in the written word.
We’ve been brainstorming ideas relentlessly, and we finally found something we can both agree on- this stunning canopy reading nook. It has everything we need- privacy, comfort, and a touch of luxury. Plus, it would be the perfect place to curl up with a good book on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
We thought the canopy reading nook would complement her mini-library quite nicely. It would provide her with a cozy spot to curl up with a good book, while still being surrounded by her favourite literary works.
We were right – she loved every bit of it to the point that she stays there more often than she does in her bed. This canopy reading nook is probably one of the easiest and most useful DIYs ever made. It only took a few hours to put together, and this canopy reading nook is the perfect place for her to curl up with a good book. Plus, it adds a touch of whimsy to her bedroom. It’s simple and easy to make.
One of the things I really love about this canopy reading nook is that it produces beautiful results with minimal effort. You can achieve a stunning look by simply draping a few yards of fabric over a few pieces of furniture. I would highly recommend giving this approach a try for yourself, as you are sure to be amazed at how easy it is to get great results.
