using the best part of the Attic

Attics can either become a room or a storage area that accumulates dust. The attic is also a place where the noise can be minimal and the light that comes in is abundant. Building a reading nook in the attic using pallet wood and cozy country pillows will be a great option rather than keeping the attic just as a storage area.
