Hi, y'all! Andi from Estella's Revenge here! Jennifer was kind enough to allow me to guest post while she's away, and I couldn't be more excited about it. March is an exciting time for me because I'm getting married on March 15th! You heard me. It's RIGHT around the corner.
Part of the many fun parts of getting married is getting all dreamy-eyed about the house we will most likely purchase one day when we've put our super earning powers together and paid off our student loans. I know we can! I know we can! One thing we've already discussed about our one-day-we'll-have-it home is a library for me. Being a huge Pinterest nerd, I'm also really into the idea of a reading nook. The catch: I'm not handy at all.
Kid nooks I can handle. Nailing a shelf? Yes sirree! This pretty much covers my level of expertise.
But a built-in? That just looks scary. This small built-in nook framed out window-seat style looks a little less intimidating than some others I've seen. Comfy, cozy, placed in an obvious, existing location, natch! And I betcha my fiance and his collection of saws could nail this.
Here's where things get WAY out of my league. We would most likely have to hire a handyman to frame this bad boy out and build in the shelves at all those weird angles. But at least I have this Pinterest inspiration to show someone while I'm writing them a check.
And finally, I doubt I could've brainstormed this beauty on my own, but it has EVERYTHING a bookworm girl could want. Ceiling-high shelves, the coveted library ladder, AND some hidden spaces for those copies of 50 Shades of Grey. Like you hadn't at least THOUGHT it! :)
If you could brainstorm a perfect reading nook, what would it look like? Feel free to share some Pins of your own!
Thanks a million to Andi from Estella's Revenge for guest posting here today!
