Get the Look: Crib Mattress Reading Nook

Don't you love the idea of a cozy reading nook where you can curl up with a good book?  A few IKEA pieces, an old crib mattress and some throw pillows and you're on your way!  I'm going to be needing Knox's crib mattress for a few more years but I'm definitely keeping this on hand for the day crib mattresses are behind us!

KEA 1x5 Expedit shelves:  Each shelf is 15" deep and a standard crib mattress is 28" so two Expedits back to back is perfect for this project.  $59 each

IKEA Branas baskets:  Five will give your reading nook a ton of storage but you can even double that and utilize the openings on the back Expedit.  $12.99

Kohl's Driftwood Wall Mirror $77.99

IKEA Ribba Ledge

Assorted Throw Pillows: (left to right)  1, 2, 3, 4
