      Kids room idea - Crib Mattress turned in to a kids reading nook. Just as soon as she outgrows the toddler bed!

      crib mattres turned reading area. (Could maybe use 6x IKEA Expedit wall shelves? Looks like dimensions would work out just about perfect... But what about baskets to fit? Hemnes wall shelf looks even better, but 6" too long, and 2x the cost.) Expedit Assembled size Width: 17 3/8 " (44 cm) Depth: 15 3/8 " (39 cm) Height: 17 3/8 " (44 cm) Plinth, height: 2 " (5 cm)

      A use for a crib mattress when the crib is gone! Turn in to child's sitting or reading area. Definitely making this into a reading nook in the niche of our loft.
