We need a playroom with some room to play. Is that asking so much?
Last night, we decided that since my youngest has been wanting to sleep in the “guest bed,” which also is located in his room, it might be time for him to actually stop sleeping in his crib full time.
While my oldest begged us for almost a year for bunk beds, he declined the opportunity to finally sleep in the top bunk, as we had originally intended. So we had the surprisingly easy task of taking the beds apart so that each boy has his own little twin bed. In the same room!
The task we didn’t foresee was that of what do we do with everything that had it’s place before the room had two twins bed in it – unstacked.
However, we are now missing an entire wall of formerly well-used real estate in the room. Enter the need for a separate playroom, and that comes with a hitch. That room also has to suffice as our family room in our basement.
Playrooms… playrooms…I perused google images for some ideas… and while it’s not this bad (from www.realsimple.com):
It’s also not this good (from kencangbanget.com):
And let’s not talk crazy talk here (from http://www.roemahku.com):
But maybe something a little more this speed (from apartmenttherapy.com):
Why does a mixed-use space have to be so hard to create?
