Monday Nook

Should I bring back the 'Monday Nook'? I get so many emails and comments from readers saying how much they loved my 'Monday Nooks'. I feel a bit guilty. Why did I stop? Did I run out of nooks? Did they used to only be nooks in 'The House'?... I can't remember. Maybe I stopped when I sold 'The House'. We need to resurrect the 'Monday Nook'... yes? Starting today. Good. I am going to stalk other people's nooks.

How's this one for a start? This gorgeous little one.... in a cupboard... was created by Sarah, over at 'Thrifty Decor Chick', with her bare hands. Yes, not a tradesman in sight. I have loved this forever....well since Sarah created it earlier this year. She's so clever. Moldings set her heart a flutter. I get that.

Look at the wall moldings and the edge of the bench. Yep, it's all in the moldings.

Sarah's 'How To' is HERE.
Grrr....that lights are so cute and cheap in her hemisphere
.... that you can wander into Lowe's and find a cute light for $18US.

Anyway, a sweet nook to start the ball (nook thing) rolling again.

Happy Monday!

  3. Huzzah for bringing back Monday Nooks! I've never lost my imagination and my love for little hidey-holes for me to get into while I read my books. I always imagine how awesome your Monday nooks would be to crawl into with a stack of books and snacks for a day!

    XO,

  5. LOVE IT! unfortunately I think my boys would use it as a place of entrapment and torture!! and the occasional book may also be read... but I think I'd love it! I'm all for anything that inspires reading and the love of books. Have a great day- it's a beautiful morning in Brisbane today! K x

  6. I love this one. My boys would need one in each of their rooms to avoid the jealousy. I would like one in mine too. That's a lot of nooks.

  7. AM, Look forward to seeing more of your nooks if they're as cute as this. Sarah is a clever girl!!! And you are so right - they are very lucky with their choice and price of cute lights.

  8. A-M,
    you are the best at finding great ideas.
    if only i could win the lottery and have you take over the interior design for our place.
    someday i wish i had a nook like that to sit quietly and ponder.
