When things don't work...

When things don't work...What do you do???

You find a way to make them work..

We downsized this summer from a 2400 sq ft house to a 1400 sq ft house...Even though I love the smaller house (less to clean)...I still have unused rooms...


I have always had rooms in my homes that you can look at just DO NOT enter...You know the ones that have the pretty furniture and all the crystal....or how about that dining room that has all the dishes sitting on the table waiting for someone to eat on it...

(nice dead plant in the corner)

It's always fun to clean a room  that no one uses (NOT)...The kids are grown and it's hard to get everyone together for meals...and I'm tired of washing dishes that don't get used...

It's time to take the space and make it more usable for my lifestyle...

I have an office...
(taken when we first moved in)

Now I'm thinking of turning it in to a home studio...were I can paint and do any creating...basically where I can make a mess...

I just love these art/craft rooms...



Now for the dining room...This room has been a dilemma for me for a while...I have been debating on keeping it a dining room or turning it into the home office...You can read about it here...

I received some wonderful suggestions...

It would be so much easier to keep it a dining room...BUT, if lucky it only gets used once year...I would love to entertain but it does not fit into my lifestyle right now...I think it's time to sell the dining room set...I can always get a NEW one in a couple years if I feel there is a need for it...

I have NO PROBLEM shopping for new furniture...lol

Here are some wonderful dining room/office inspirations...



Your home should work for you...You should not work for your home!!!

Time to utilize the un-used space in my home....

I would love to hear any ideas or thoughts from all my "crazy friends"...

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING AN UNUSED ROOM FUNCTIONAL AGAIN???

  1. Oh yeah...you know that you had me at the zebra prints and black furniture...lol You could keep your table and paint it black? Lotsa work I know...but a thought for saving some dough. Can't wait to see how you convert it all. You could also take the lef out of your table and turn it into a round "library" table in your office space ;}
