Reading Cabana

I am so excited to have a fun reading area in my 7th and 8th grade class this year where the kids get to enjoy a good book the same way I do at home: comfortably lounging!

The area where all of the fabric is bundled hides a tv that doesn't work, so draping was made easier. I purchased the fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric, they were have a sale for $1/yrd off, and then a 20% teacher discount, but even with that I spent WAY more than I planned! The pillows were on clearance from Marshalls from the outdoor seating section and are super plush. After one of the teachers on my campus came and checked out the cabana, she came back with 3 more pillows that she wasn't using and matched perfectly! The lighting was also donated by teachers who weren't using them. I heart free goodies!

I love that one of my favorite (and MY previous 8th grade math AND mentor) teacher is named Suzanna, so the reading area has been dubbed "The Suzanna Cabana" in her honor! She even has the perfect accessory for the location!
