When decorating a house, everyone first focuses on the main spaces. Those are the main rooms. But in every house there are also secondary spaces and those are usually the hallways, closets and nooks. They might not be perceived in the same way as the main rooms but they are also very important for the overall result. They make a home feel complete and they can often change the way the whole home feels like when they’re used to their full potential.
This is the story of how a simple, empty space near the window was turned into a cozy and very lovely reading nook. It was a one weekend project when it was rainy outside. The first step was to rip down the original baseboards and to make a rectangular box with a divider and some shelves on the front. A portion of the baseboard was replaced and a piece of trim was added to give it a rounded edge. Then everything was painted white.
