Kmart Backyard Makeover: Relaxing Reading Nook for under $100


The reading nook and the welcoming entrance to the house were both created by using same products from Kmart that I used in other parts of the yard as well, making it all tie together very well. The reading nook was easy to create just by pulling one of the rockers off the dining set, and adding a side table. The pillows were also already part of the dining décor. Creating this relaxing nook also gives extra space for people to walk around the patio, when entertaining, but the chair is easy to pull back to the table when dining. One of the planters works as a magazine holder, and I added a pillow case as a liner. The reading nook has a same plant stand as a table as the garden with the fire pit does. Both of the plant tables can be used for plants in everyday use, but then turned into tables when entertaining or a table is needed. Now we just places the flowers on the floor – and created a table.
