With nowhere to escape to during lockdown, it’s worth creating a peaceful little escape at home, like a cosy reading nook…

In the following video, DIY expert Monica Mangin shows us how she created a cosy book nook in her home.

To section off the nook, Mangin used wallpaper and a feature coloured paint to create a visual separation from the rest of the room.  For seating, she used an old bed mattress and custom made a daybed.

It’s a lot of work, but the results are gorgeous. Of course, you could do this without building furniture by using what you have and moving furniture around.
