Well things just haven’t been going according to plan lately. I’ve been subbing A LOT ! Mom had sinus surgery. Then she tripped over her sewing machine cord and broke her arm while trying to get our craft shop up and running. And my friend Jennifer, well Jennifer has two little ones and has been doing her best to get all of her previous assignments completed. Finally here we are with organizing play spaces part 3.
One of the things I asked Jennifer to do was to move her bed and move the two big slipper chairs. She tried moving the chairs in front of the window like I suggested, but she just couldn’t make them work.
Although, they look really good in front of the windows she felt that they took up way to much space. The problem with the chairs in front of the window is that they ate up space in the center of the room. The space that her boys were enjoying so much.
And sometimes…. function just has to win especially when kids are involved!
So, the chairs made their way back across the room. Okay maybe Jennifer’s husband had a little something to do with it.. Thanks Jay!
Here’s the new room plan below. I think it still works really well. The center of the room is nice and opened for the boys to romp, roll and maybe even relax. The chairs are now facing the TV and the bed faces the door. Which is a pet peeve of mine!
Even though design is really important sometimes you have to go with what works the best for your family. As the boys grow and don’t need that big empty space the chairs can always be moved to where ever they “look” the best.
Have you ever had to place furniture purely out of function? Tell us about it….
Jennifer is like the rest of us. She’s got a million projects going on top of being a working Mom. So now that the room is all organized she is going to slowly start decorating.
