When is a Closet not a Closet? – When it is a Reading Nook!

This past weekend my husband took the boys camping. A free weekend – by myself – peace and quiet!

(insert sound of hammers, jigsaw, table saw, and more hammering)

Well, forget the quiet part, I decided to tackle another DIY project I had been thinking about for almost two years. I first got the idea after seeing this photo in Creative Home Magazine:



Kym, the homeowner, had turned her son’s closet into a private nook. I thought, no problem, I’d complete this project in an easy 2 days. After all, how long can renovating one 6′ x 2′ closet take? During stopping points I could squeeze in a pedicure, swim some laps and possibly have a friend over for wine and some chat one evening.  Truth be told, it ended up taking a full 3 days (and nights)!

So, here is the abbreviated (press fast forward on the remote) version:

My three year old has two full size closets in his room. And, yet, his toys were always strewn around the room. Here is my “keeping it real” BEFORE picture:

Last year I took the doors off one of the closets and put up some curtains so he could have a little hideaway.

First task (after cleaning up all those toys, of course!) was removing hardware, demolition and patching holes (where I found I didn’t know my own strength.)

Phew, glad that is done. Now comes the fun part, time to build!

First I cut all my wood to size, then built two frames. One for the base and one for the bench.

The base frame only had one center support since it didn’t have to hold much weight. The bench seat frame had two center supports at 2′ intervals.

I bought paint quality (almost smooth) plywood for the tops of the base and seat frames.

Here is a little trick I learned for scribing the profile of trim or other obstacles onto your board. In this instance, I used a compass and set the width to the same distance from the wall to the outside of my door casing. Then drew a line around the casing being careful to keep the compass perpendicular to the casing. Then you can cut out the profile with a jigsaw or coping hand saw.

See, perfect fit!

Next I built the second platform the same way (with the exception of the extra center supports.) I highly recommend priming as much of the wood as you can before nailing it into place. It is easier to prime wood on sawhorses.

I pulled out my levels (both a carpenter’s level and laser level) and carefully leveled my bench platform before nailing it in. Then I used framing nails to nail the platform into the studs in the closet. (I promise to post about finding studs at a later date.)

Seriously, I really did level it! I even have the pictures to prove it! Because, at some point the right hand side of the bench must have shifted while I was nailing, which resulted in a slight slope. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone! My lesson learned is that next time I will either screw the frame in place to hold it or put a brace underneath to keep it from slipping.

Somewhere during the process, I cut the foam cushion for the bench seat. If you haven’t heard, the best way to cut foam is with an electric carving knife! (Huge thank you to my friend and neighbor Karen for the use of her 1970’s electric carving knife.)

Next I installed all the moulding, wainscoting and trim. Did I mention that I bought all my trim and decorative moulding at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore? Super cheap at $.50 (yes, 50 cents!) per linear foot! My total for all the trim was $18, and I still have two 6 ft. pieces left.

Before I could prime I had to caulk all the seams. Did you know that some of the moulding in your home, especially crown moulding, is usually made up of several different pieces and then caulked to hide the edges?

This is the Pretty Handy Girl’s tried-and-true caulking method:

  1. Squeeze out your bead of caulk.
  2. Run your finger along the bead to smooth it (then wipe your finger off on a rag.)
  3. Follow up with a slightly moist paper towel for a super smooth finish!

Once the caulk dried, I primed all the wood and wainscoting.

After trying some Benjamin Moore paint swatches, I settled on a deep navy blue called “Symphony Blue”. I knew I’d need to use some tinted primer before trying to paint such a dark color on the light walls. Unfortunately our Ace Hardware was out of stock. Luckily George, my friendly Ace Hardware paint consultant, told me how to mix my own.

Isn’t the marble effect pretty! I used 1 part paint to 3 parts primer and stirred it up really well.

Once everything is dry, the painting can begin. I always use two coats of paint. The only time I got away with one was by using Benjamin Moore Aura paint in our living room. But, I was going from a medium green to a slightly lighter green. Not a major change in color.

So, are you ready?? The drumroll please…

Can’t you hear the Symphonic Chords playing?
The copper wall sconce was also from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I scored that gem for  only $5! It has a cord that I snaked around the moulding and then plugged into the outlet just outside the closet. A tutorial on re-wiring the copper sconce with a white cord and adding a switch is poster here.
Plenty of storage bins for all the toys a three year old can hoard.
Finally, a nook built for reading, sleepovers…
…or just hanging with big brother.

That’s all folks! Bye-bye!

Your Dad did a great job raising you and teaching how to do all that stuff. The closet looks fantastic! You deserve a mani and pedi after that!

  29. Colleen @ MuralMaker&More says:

    It's truly sensational. Lotta work! Thanks for the great pics!

  32. Kim @ Starshine Chic says:

    It's fabulous!!!! I'll bet your boy was so excited to have this hideout, I mean nook. I know I would be excited. Thanks for sharing. And I'm so impressed. I could never do this. But my hubby could.

  33. willoughbywhimsy says:

    Absolutely stunning! What a fine piece of workwomanship! You should be proud! Maybe sneak in there and savor a cup of coffee some afternoon.:)

  34. Stephanie says:

    OMG! I'm emailing this to my husband now that has been trying to figure it out on his own for our own house!!!

    and i love love love it's a how to from a FEMALE! =) HAHA you go girl!

  35. That's awesome – I wish my kids had 2 closets too so i could transform one of them!

  36. Wow! I am soooo impressed! I like yours better than the one that inspired you! It came out awesome! That's so cool that it can be used for so many purposes! You rocked it, Mom!

  37. Jen @ lil Mop Top says:

    That turned out so sweet! I am so impressed that you did all that on your own! Hopefully my next house has a little space I can turn into a cute nook like yours. :)

  38. Wow! That is AMAZING! Definitely scoring some awesome mommy points on that one. :) Happy 4th!

  39. Boy oh boy, the reading teacher in me thinks this is the most terrific idea I've seen for a child's room in a long time. Kudos to you, mom! Love this idea, but your attention to details has made this little reading nook very attractive and inviting. You are definitely a Handy Girl. This need to be in a magazine! It's more attractive than the one you show in your photo.
    Happy 4th of July! ~ Sarah

  40. Emily @ Finding My Aloha says:

    This is so gorgeous and inspirational. Ill be filing this away for a project once we move. I'm just finishing up a laundry room redo (so I totally get how time on a project can runaway from you!) and I'm a little burned out now.

  41. Joy @ Thrifty Parsonage Living says:

    Great job! I love it!!!!!

  42. Laura's Rose Garden says:

    I hope you will stop by for a bbq on a white tablecloth. :)

  45. ~~Carol~~ says:

    I love how your nook turned out! And the star pillows too. I would love to do this, except we live in a very old house that only has two closets in it!
    Happy 4th!
    Carol~~Old Glory Cottage
    p.s. If this is any indication of the sort of thing that you normally do, I'm going to love looking through your blog some more!

  46. The Writer Chic says:

    Jealous of your talent and of the nook itself. I'm bookmarking this post for sure…..granted, I'm not sure I'll be tackling it in this lifetime, but a girl can dream, right?

  47. KatrinkaJane says:

    Bookmarking for future use!

  53. Patty@www.nuestrasaventurasentexas.com says:

    This is really neat…I love all the organized cubbies and just the homey-ness of this. I'm sure your boys love this little nook!

  57. From The Heart Crafts says:

    You are definitely a handy girl. I reminds me of the day I built an entire closet (with sliding doors) in my 5 yr old son's room…he is still using it 15 yrs later! I loved your reading nook, it is so cute and professional looking. Congrats on being the #1 project!

  58. Katie @ On the Banks of Squaw Creek says:

    That is gorgeous! You did such a great job on it! LOVE the blue and white – I'm going to follow so I can see how you did the star pillows. :)

  59. Ali@Honey and Maple Syrup says:

    That is so so cute! Seriously, it looks like it came right out of a Pottery Barn catalog!

  60. Sandra {sawdust and paper scraps} says:

    Love it! A girl after my own heart, and I make those kinds of mistakes when I'm building stuff too. It's hard to avoid really. I'm convinced that the "pros" also make mistakes all the time too but they just don't announce it like we do. I say, let others learn from our mistakes though so I commend you for pointing out that your work was not perfect. Pretty darn close though. It looks fab and functional.

    I'm definitely following cause you're a woman who has power tools and knows how to use them.

  61. Michelle says:

    Oh WOW! That is awesome! I wish I had an extra closet in my home so I could do this!

  62. CINNIBONBON says:

    Okay so you make this look sooo simple! I'm floor girl! Just stunning and equally impressive. This really is just awesome.

  63. man, this is so fabulous! I love it!!

  64. WOW! You outdid yourself, what an awesome nook! I thought about it while on vacation and couldn't wait to see what you'd done. I'm impressed!

  65. The Price's says:

    This is amazing….and the tutorial is excellent!!! Visiting you from Tatertots and Jello….

  66. Following you over from Tatortots ans Jello! You did such an amazing job! So inspirational! Thanks for sharing! :0)

  67. Good Time Charlie says:

    Wow, fantastic! I often see these types of nooks and want to build one. Thank you so much for showing how it is done. It looks completely professional and worthy of any good decorating magazine. I do hope you rewarded yourself with that pedicure when all was said and done!

  68. Allison says:

    i am amazed! i never would have thought to do this with a closet. you did such a wonderful job.

  69. Elizabeth says:

    Amazing, amazing job – I have seen this in mags, too – and I want one for myself – never mind the kids. 😉 Thanks for posting!!

  74. Ashley @ The Hillside Home says:

    I popped over from Remodelaholic just to get another peek. This is one of the most amazing DIY projects I've seen in blogland. amazing job!!!!!

  75. Wow – that is amazing!!!

    We're in the thinking of changing our front closet into a "mini-mudroom." I'm going to be bookmarking this and referencing it often.

  76. A+, girl! This is amazing! I love to tackle stuff like this. You have inspired me for sure.

  77. WOW! I am so impressed. Your transformed closet is awesome! I bet your son was tickled to see this wonderful space of his own. I love it! You are quite the handy girl aren't you! I bet your husband is jealous of your skills. lol This has inspired me to think of adding a guest bed in the closet with the closet being the headboard and using the sides as shelves for books and a couple of sconces. Kinda cozy. Have to wait until we get our house though. Apartment mgrs might not like the idea. 😉

  78. Wonderful!!!!!! I'm so inspired to find your blog as I'm a do it girl too…. have popped you in my favourite blogs!!!

  79. Beth@The Stories of A2Z says:

    This is such an amazing project! Love it! So sorry for the confusion but my linky on my blog was just a way for me to organize my year in review. I didn't mean to leave it open. Rhoda is having a top projects of 2010 party starting tomorrow morning so feel free to link up then!

  96. I love this. I showed it on my blog today and provided at link to here. Love your site.

  97. We’re moving into a new house in July, and my 9 year old daughter’s room was designed with two closets. I’d been thinking of asking the builders to leave the doors off one of the closets to make a vanity area out of it for her, and you’ve convinced me to do it (and given me some great ideas too). Thanks for sharing, what a beautiful space!

  98. Thanks for sharing this! We are now going to do this for my daughter’s room.

    Why do you need caulk? I always thought it was for bathrooms and windows. What am I missing?

  99. My crafty husband us going to ‘kill’ me!! Love it. Just the thing I plan to do in my daughters closet that was once our master bedroom!! Thanks so much for sharing.

  100. Eureka, this gives me such a good idea and I can’t wait to get started. Love your projects and sense of adventure. Isn’t it great to be an artist?

  101. I love this and was just thinking about awesome nooks and spaces. I hope you’ll come link up with me on Oct. 3rd at Roomspiration. You can also link up other rooms as well starting on Monday! Come check it out!

  102. This is GENIUS! Thanks for the thorough tutorial!

  103. Love this idea. Can I ask where you bought the foam for the bench?

  104. Love! Especially the color scheme and board & batten!

  105. OMG! I love this… I love the curtains too, most of these nooks I see don’t have the option of hiding everything if you don’t have time to tidy.

    Love it!

  106. hellebelle says:

    this is completely amazing! too bad i have too many clothes in my closet to build one of these :(

  107. If only I had an un-needed cupboard! Love it; the colour scheme and wood panelling are perfect. Thanks for agreeing to the use of the images, it’s now up on our blog at http://www.gingerandmay.co.uk/a-perfect-nook-revamped-cupboard-2.php. Kind regards, Sue.

  108. Mylinda says:

    It looks really great. Do you by any chance have an itemized list of the materials?

  109. Electric knife for foam…..nice idea!

    I love the paint color……thanks for sharing the name of it.

    I’m always jealous of people who have so much closet space in their home that they can afford to lose an entire closet for an office or something like this. Nice job!

  110. This looks exactly, EXACTLYYY, spittin’ image like Mrs. B’s Hive and Thrifty Decor Chick’s spaces had a baby. Nice work!!

Yes, it’s true, closet space in many homes is in the deficit as well as our bi weekly paycheck, but one of the many things learned form C.S. Lewis is the magnificent power of the wardrobe. So throw open wide the double wide closet and reinvent a clothing hideout into a reading nook. Your kids are going to love this! To the left and right install cool shelving. Sprawled in the middle of this area a warm inviting chaise lounge and held upon its pillow-soft seating the next edition in your children’s favorite sequel.
