Made from flat-pack kitchen cabinets, plywood and pine, this book nook is a cut and screw job with no complicated carpentry involved. Simply measure your space and adapt the build to suit.
A cosy corner calls out for a cuppa, but don’t create an obstacle with a coffee table – go for a tray instead. Use one you have or turn plywood offcuts into this nifty beauty.
Old-school window seats had hinged lids and storage space inside. Make yours modern with easy-access drawers. They’re a great spot for beach towels, games and craft supplies.
Give your stray books and knick-knacks a home with a simple three-sided shelf ledge. Make them any length for anywhere – on a mantelpiece, sideboard, kitchen bench or desk.
