In a couple of easy steps and a shower curtain set up and a hula hoop you can build yourself a breezy private hideaway for reading for outdoor pleasure.

You are sure to enjoy your special new place made especially for you and maybe room for a sibling or friend if you feel generous about sharing your quaint space.
