Flickr Find: Handmade Play Tent

What a fantastic idea for occupying those deep corners that are created near beds and cribs. What's even better, Kim fashioned this cozy, colorful little nook for her daughter Haley almost entirely from items she found around the house.

    Reading nook - so cute! This one appears to be made with pvc pipe. Could also get creative with shower curtain rods.

    Use a shower curtain rod to create a tent for a play tent (: my future kids room .^

    Use a tension rod between the furniture and the wall to create a fort. What kid doesn't love a fort? This would also make an awesome reading nook! Cute kids room idea!

This would be great to make for a dress-up or drama center!

Use tension rods and a sheet to make a tent in the hallway for the kids. You can decorate the sheet with fabric paint or markers. And can be easily stored when done. this is awesome

Playhouse in a hallway! I'm going to use this idea and adapt it to create a tent in front of the library for Summer Camp Read! Just using long tension poles, sewing pockets on the back of the green fabric for the rods, then opening the front of the "tent" and rolling it back to enter the library. Cool! I also bought astro turf for grass...

Great kid's room! Once she outgrew it, we took our kangaroo swing (from IKEA) to school for the sensory room - all the kids LOVE it!

The tree is cheap, brown tissue paper glued to the wall using Elmer's school glue. The shelves are melamine from Ikea sprayedbrown using Krylon plastic paint. The leaves are cut from a Junie B. Jones book. The cocoon is from Ikea as well.

The two small benches with cushions really make the space, they almost look like two halves of a crib. The wall-mounted book display, small desk lamp and storage box underneath the table all work to create a cozy feeling. Our only addition would be to place a small area rug underneath.

More tension rod uses: to organize cutting boards, cookie sheets, trays et al.

IKEA spice racks used as book racks $4 // this is brilliant! was going to make my own, would've been more expensive way bigger hassle
