I saw this fantastic idea using spice racks to hold books on Pinterest. I love this reading nook idea because it takes little space, and adds charm and character while encouraging good reading habits to our little ones. When I went to IKEA however, these wooden spice racks were nowhere to be found. I decided to keep looking and stumbled upon some photo ledges that I thought would fit perfectly for a reading nook I had wanted to make for my daughter for her room.
Here is what her wall looked like before. It was plain and sad with an off centered organization board I made last year. Blah and boring!
I found a fun cherry blossom decal and added it to the plain walls along with two photo ledges at a height that would make it easy for my toddler to reach. I hung them off set from one another.
Here is a close up.
I purchased and painted some wooden letters to spell out “books” and “read” with acrylic craft paint. I didn’t originally plan on it saying “read books” but I found an old curb side pick-up frame that I thought would look cute around the words.
Here another photo. It turned out quite nice.
My daughter actually picks up and reads her books more often now because they are displayed. No longer hidden in her organization cubes, her books are now easily accessible and a constant reminder that she has them!
