Alcove Transformed Into Reading Nook

If you love this project, be sure to subscribe to our blog to receive updates regularly!See how this awkward alcove is transformed into a farmhouse style DIY reading nook with storage!! This shiplap wrapped nook with seating will make you want to cozy up and read a good book.We’ve always been at a loss on what to do with this weird and awkward alcove in our living room. Turns out it was originally a fireplace, but at some point in the past the fireplace was removed (along with the chimney and everything else that went along with it). We talked about putting in a new fireplace someday, but needed to wait until we could budget for it because it’s a pretty expensive thing to add.Here’s how the alcove space started before we began building our farmhouse reading nook. The reason we have the concrete backing is because we originally put it up long ago when we were still planning on someday putting back in a fireplace. It is not an necessary part of this tutorial. You can build this reading nook directly on top of your existing drywall.
