Here is what I did to make a cozy, calming audio book nook for my son, complete with artwork and a straw PIG.
The space first took shape with this awesome rolling book cart found at Goodwill for $20. As luck would have it, the cart fits perfectly at the end of my son's bed.
I felt like the space needed something on the wall....and I found the great framed Van Gogh poster for $4.99!! The great thing about this find is that it is a plastic frame and has clear plastic instead of glass. Perfect for a kids room!!
Most of our books come from the thrift store, I was able to buy this storytime favorites with audio cd for 99 cents. I gathered all of our audio books/books with cd's and placed them on the cart for easy access. Now both my son and daughter can listen to a story without my help. It makes me so happy to see how excited they are to play the tapes and cd's by themselves. Also on the cart: Thomas Jefferson book and casette (Goodwill, $2.99 for a classrom boxed set), Cd's on the right are a mixture of our Putamayo collection and a 5 cd classical music collection from Goodwill.
On the bottom shelf, we have 2 cases filled with Disney cassettes and corresponding books that I thrifted at Goodwill a while back for $2.99/case.
