We've seen many small closets turned into reading nooks for kids and we're all for it. They're cozy, semi-private and encourage curling up with a good read. The only thing not to like about that is some of us still need our closets! Sherry of Young House Love found a lovely compromise with her daughter Clara's closet makeover.We first took a gander at Clara's closet in January and especially admired its pretty curtain panel door. Now Sherry has added a Flokati-style rug and pillows to create an inviting reading spot for her little one while still having room to store clothes and shoes. The other change is subtle, but super: potato stamped walls. It gives the closet walls a touch of glam and she only spent pennies doing it.
