An Outdoor Book Nook with Pottery Barn Kids!

Kids Outdoor Book Nook | Mer Mag

I’m super excited to share with you one of my favorite summer projects we’ve been working on: this outdoor book nook with Pottery Barn Kids! It’s been a bit of a little reading oasis and the kids and I are in love with it! Seriously anything to encourage reading is a number one in my book.

    This is just fabulous! I can’t have this type of book nook because I live in a flat in a big city, but it’s just amazing and my son, my husband and I would love to read there, it’s just fantastic! Best regards from Barcelona, Spain,

    Hi Merrilee,
    This nook is amazing . Would love the plans. Did you post them? And if you did, can you direct me to them? You are so creative. Your children must just love to play and create as much as you.
    xoxo- kathy
