Way back in 2011, I talked about our spare bedroom and the need for it to be a multipurpose room. I'm happy to report it has not returned to the cluttered, chaotic state in one of the pictures of that post - but man, oh, man - my heart still doesn't swoon when I walk in. I've decluttered and purged ALOT. I don't want to share the current "before" pictures because I'm not sure when this project will unfold. I've started an "inspiration" board here on Pinterest. The room is still begging for direction and definition.
Super-husband and I have agreed to keep the treadmill for 6 months & then re-evaluate. Personally, I would rather be outdoors exercising (even if it is freezing cold) - he is the opposite & prefers the treadmill.
The desk. I have a love-hate relationship with it. In the link to 2011, you'll see a corner desk. I'm happy to report I disassembled that desk - it was not a "space saver" for us. I'm currently evaluating the office closet idea. I mentioned it as well in my first post & I really think that is the best option for the space.
Other than that, I'd love to have a futon, bed, or seating area to accompany guest or for us to have a place to retreat. The bottom line, I want it to be usable space for us & not a door that we keep closed. This will likely be my Labor Day weekend project - my goals: design on dime (not to spend much if any money) & make the space fully functional.
Please let me know if you have some suggestions! :)
