Gord and I have a two bedroom condo in a townhouse.
The spare room used to have a futon in it. But it had gotten old and we threw it out in the fall. There was also a desk ... but since we both have laptops now, we never used it.
So the spare room became a junk room that I rarely came into.
And I wasn't happy with that.
I wanted it to be a cozy den ... a place I could go to read when Gord is watching TV.
Gord and I are on vacation this week ... one of my goals was to do something about fixing up the spare room. Today we bought a futon, a couple of cushions and a TV stand.
Here's the before picture where the old futon used to be (see what I mean about it being a junk room?!) ...
And here is the after picture with the new futon and cushions ...
And here is the desk we never used ... what a mess!
Here's the after picture of the same spot with the new TV stand and the TV we had in our bedroom but never used.
BTW, the styrofoam cooler has all the stuff from the shelves on the desk ... I have to figure out what to do with the post-in notes, tape, etc. I still have some work to do with this room but it's soooooo much better!
My bookcase in this room was also driving me crazy too ... another disaster area!
I rearranged it tonight too. I turned it against the other wall and that worked out so much better.
I threw out so much stuff ... books, papers, etc.
Gord still had to rearrange his bookshelf. We're going to move it opposite to mine so it takes up less space and there's balance. That's his chore for the week.
Can you tell that Morgan likes the new futon?!
I'm so much more content ... I've been in the spare room all evening and can see spending lots of time in here now.
