Reading Nook Re-do

I have a little nook in my house on GPark that is too small for just about anything.  A dining table fits, but no chairs.  It has a bright sunny window, but there is a window air conditioning that is an absolute necessity.  I am thinking I might change the area into a reading knook/bar area/bookcase.  Is it possible?  Not sure, but I decided to head over to Pinterest and I searched ‘reading nook’.  Here are some of my inspirations.

I am very happy the way my little nook turned out.  Here it is after a few tweaks and a trip to Big Lots.  Big Lots has really great deals on throw pillows ($12) and drapery panels and hardware ($75 for everything) and the rug ($15).  I already had my morning coffee and checked my email on the ipad and it was lovely.

Anyway else have a longing for a reading nook?  I was willing to sacrifice a dining space for one, but I’m cool with it.  We’ll see how I feel at Thanksgiving though.

Nice spot for a coffee and a Kindle book.
