When we installed the Ikea Pax built-in closets, it created an alcove in the corner our boys’ room. Some day, I think this might make a good place for a desk, but for now, it makes a cozy hideout for reading, games, and “K+L+J” club meetings. This is an easy project, with a fun twist with its starry ceiling.
- 2 tension-mounted shower curtain rods
- Tab-top curtain panels
- String lights
- Large floor cushions – we were lucky to inherit this great beanbag chair, part of our friend Victor’s bachelor decor that he had to part with when he moved in with Nicola 🙂
To close off the alcove, I mounted one tension rod at the front, holding the curtain panels, and the other at the very back of the alcove. For the starry ceiling, I wrapped the lights around the two rods, weaving between the curtain tabs.
I’d like to add a few more things to the walls of the alcove, but for now, there’s a world map that fits with the other travel-themed decor in the room. It looks like the boys are having a good time in their new space already!
