There was an odd little spot, between a wall and a bookshelf and the Hubby had one of those ideas, that we just had to try, fail or not.
We (he) set about building a cubby house, that could also be used as a shelf.
We (I) were very impressed how it turned out.
This is the space we started with. Odd, right? The boys are loving playing with all the "new" things that they forgot they had!
Now, there could have been an easier way to do this, but we were sort of just making it up as we went a long.
They love this space. It's been used for hiding, playing Mums and Dads, reading, quiet times and being the dark cave to explore. It doesn't take much space, and fills the gap nicely. We all love the little cubby!
