I don't know what you would call it...

...But I think it's a sewing room. Possably. I'm not feeling it.

This room is supposed to be my sewing room / kids playroom. I think the options are endless, I just don't know what to do with it. I feel bad about that too.

I think part of the problem is 1) It's the first room you see when you walk into the house. I don't mind having a few toys about, but I don't want a lot of clutter in that room. It needs to stay neat, and for some reason, I don't know how to do that. I'm not a hoarder by any means, but I have a tendancy to not 'see' clutter until it's out of hand. 2)We're a bit strapped for cash, so the $1500 armoire is out of the question. And so is the cute sewing desk and cabinet. *sigh* 3) Everything is this house is white! It's so steril. And since this is a short term rental, painting is out of the question.

Anyway, here are a few pics. I have a microwave stand with a tv on it. It's going into that room and i'll probably hook up the Wii on it. And i'm thinking about one of those big fat Ikea chairs. Maybe a small area rug, curtains and some kind of cabinet, and then maybe I can feel at home.

Nice space with lots of light! Maybe you can find something with your local Have you seen what Brian at found free for his sewing room and other rooms? Pretty amazing.

I see a big round table where everyone can do everything, it would look like a busy library. Have fun in your sewing/kids room!
