I have always wanted a cute reading bench in my classroom but never had the room for it. I decided to tackle that this week and finally make room!
We got the Kallax shelves from Ikea and some cheap pillows!
My husband assembled everything and I put it in the perfect spot:
Threw the pillows on it and it was just perfect!
I added my book bucks and I’m just in love! The kids love sitting here.
The buckets are from the Dollar Tree and the labels can be found HERE.
I moved my room and was worried I wouldn’t be able to fit my bench somewhere. Where there’s a will, there’s a way 🙂 This is what it looks like in my new classroom:
My only wish was that I could have found the five cubby shelves instead, but at that point in time they were not manufactured by IKEA. I believe they have since brought them back though!
I would love to one day make a corner bench but I definitely don’t have the space for that right now. Maybe one day 🙂
