the game room

My mom and step dad built an addition on their home a few years back and added another family room which we've come to call "the game room". Although it would be great if it had games, it just has a couch and tv in it. So my mom asked me to help her make the room more useful. Here's what the room looks like currently:

The room needs to have three distinct areas..
  • entertainment space - We have a big family and need a large seating area to watch tv, play games etc.
  • sewing area - my mom has always been a fantastic sewer and recently started quilting, so she needs a space to do all her sewing too.
  • office area - my mom recently took a job as a college professor (congrats mom!) so she needs her own space to grade papers, tests etc.
So here is the plan... We need to get a new coffee table and end tables, a desk, sewing table, slipcover or new couch and an entertainment center. Plus lots of accessories! Here's the inspiration board I've come up with.

Now time to find some furniture....

  2. That's going to be an awesome game room. It looks very comfy and cozy from the design board you've put together. Your mom is lucky to have a daughter like you who can put something like that together for her.
