A SAVVY mum has revealed how she managed to transform the “awkward” box over her stairs into a cosy reading nook.
Taking to the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It, Emma Nelson from York, shared a snap of the DIY masterpiece.
Captioning the post, Emma wrote: “I have seen a fair few posts regarding the awkward box over the stairs.
“I thought I would share how we made it useful.”
In the snap, Emma’s little girl can be seen curled up enjoying a good book on the box which her mum has painted pink before adding a fluffy rug and cushions for comfort.
The mum has also added two shelves to keep the reading material in and decorated the space with pink unicorn accessories.
She has even added a mini pair of pink steps making it easier for her little ones to clamber up.
Fellow mums were seriously impressed, praising her handiwork in the comments.
One wrote: “Aww that’s such a great idea love it.”
“Nice to see children reading books ❤ as there’s too much technology out there these days for children” agreed another.
A third added: “wow what a great idea.”
