If you have school aged kids in your home, you probably spend a huge amount of time reading with them. Our kids spend countless hours every week reading with us or reading by themselves, and we are now amazed that they are reading to US! Probably one of the most amazing parenting moments so far has been to have our baby reading US a bedtime story! Here is a way to re purpose that baby crib mattress, now that your kids don’t use it anymore! The combination of a simple mattress on the floor covered in a cute fabric, a row of rain gutter bookshelves, and stacks of cozy pillows makes for a kid friendly space that your kids will never want to leave! You can create a book nook for your little ones to enjoy for years to come!
