I love this idea of turning a closet into a reading nook/kids private library. My mother would NEVER have been able to lever me out of it if I had one as a child. Who am I kidding...if I had one now I would still be in it!:
I love that these shelves are in the corner and low on the wall within reach for a toddler. The lanterns above make it all the more cute. I would also possibly, put a table and chairs or a cushy little chair under or to the side.
