From the first day that Dacia Grace and I looked at this house with a realtor, the closet under the steps has been hers. She has loved that room from the beginning! When we moved in, she came up to about 2/3rds of the door and it was a half size door! She now has to duck into the door to acess it. Still she loves it! Still it is hers!
Her mini room has been a toy closet, a kitchen, a doll house, etc. Today it was transformed again! Today I created a reading nook. It was super easy! The crib mattress that she outgrew years ago fits inside perfectly thus providing a great cushion! (So glad I did not get rid of that mattress.) The armed reading pillow fits. Add a pillow pet and a blanket or two and we were set.
I remembered an old bed lamp! That coupled with an extension cord......lights!
I also found an extra French bulletin board to hang in there. You can see it in the photo below.
This afternoon Dacia Grace spent hours in there reading and writing. Tonight Arthur crawled in to ead several chapters of Mr. Poppers Penguins with her. I think this will be the best use yet. I can see it being used for years to come!
Here are the results!
