My Book Nook - it's finished!

Almost. But as you can see I can sit and read an be veeeeery comfortable, so I don't really care that it isn't all the way done yet. I love it. The only problem is that I don't want to get up once I'm sitting, but I should have expected that, right? ;)
If you haven't read my first post on this project, here's the link: Building my Book Nook - Day 1 & 2
The best thing? I didn't have to sew. At all! Not one single stich! :D
My dad bought me all the cushions and covers and said it was a late easter present. Right. He's the best. <3

The wooden platform beneath the matress is about 40 cm (~ 1 foot and 4 inches) high, so I'm planning to put some drawers underneath, which will come in handy and look good (I hope).
I'm also thinking of putting in another bookshelf (or rather, of letting my dad put in another bookshelf xD). My dad has already built me two, so it might be a good idea to bring up the idea now. That way he'll have enough time to finish it until Christmas. The gap between the wall and the matress is a bit bigger than 5 inches, so it would be just right for paperbacks.

But apart from that it's really finished! I had a lot of fun building it and choosing all the fabrics for the cushions. Looking back now, I have to say that it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be in the beginning. And who knows, next time I come up with an idea for a project like this it might not take me years to finally start working on it. ;]


  1. t's really, really awesome!

  2. I want one! Have fun sitting in your little nook and enjoy some good books.

    1. I'm really happy with it. And concerning sitting and enjoying good books - I have and I will. ;] Thank you!
