We've started working on our special reading nook!! Last night Cael & I took the diapers, shelf, etc. out of the closet & painted it. Cael likes to paint....for a while. Then he wanted to go race with daddy. We had leftover paint from Cael's bedroom so I just used that. I'm trying to make this as cheap as possible. We have plywood, paint, plywood for shelves & padding. I had to buy the brackets for the shelves and I bought some letters. I had my 3 older kids in daycare paint "READ" and we're going to hang them. I bought a small round pizza pan to stick up there for magnet play and I painted 1 of my cookie sheets that I don't use with chalkboard paint. I bought a cheap flat twin sheet to staple onto the bench so we can sit on it. I can't wait!!! Travis & Nicole are on their way here to help me build it since Courtney's gone til Sunday. :( Here are a couple of pix of Cael painting!
