How To Make This Space Into a Book Nook?

Good Questions

Q: I've been falling in love with all the reading nooks on Ohdeedoh and elsewhere on the internet. I would love to set one up in my son's room, but am having a hard time figuring out how to do it. First of all, we live in a rental, so no major construction can go on. Second, I'm on a very tight budget. There is a corner in my son's room that he loves to hang out, but it has these ugly (and maybe a little dangerous) baseboard heaters. Can anyone think of a way to make this nook cosy and useable?

Pin it button big

Editor: I wonder if you could make a smaller version of this corner book nook? It would be elevated above the heaters. Readers, what ideas do you have?
