Still working on organizing the house, from my New Years resolution.
This pace used to be our office, we had 2 desks on each end, after the kids went to be Jon worked on his homework and I worked on Ebay/blogging.
Jon recently bought a laptop and can work wherever he likes and I have moved my office into the unfinished, large, laundry/craft room. I just have so much inventory it was not enough space and kept spilling into the living room.
Here is a picture from our living room:
Notice the exercise area behind the futon? Well it is gone! During my Fab Five February I sold the futon and the recumbent bike!!
This living room downstairs, serves as the TV room, a playroom, you can see the dress up on the middle left side of the picture, and until recently a workout room.
This space needed less responsibility!
So we moved all exercise related items into the old office and viola! No more exercising in the living room. (living room pic still to come)
Some before and after shots of the new workout room:
Notice there are glass french doors so I can close them if I need/want to.
Before. After…my 7 mile run at night…hence the lighting.
I still have a few things that I would like to do in this room:
- Add some audio/visual maybe take down one shelf dn add a small TV, definitely something for music.
- Take out the wireless modem..move it into the office.
- Add some inspirational sayings? Wall art?
- Relable the Ikea bins, since those no longer house shopping bags and mittens/hats 😉
It feels so good to have a clean space to exercise inside, so I can run while the littles nap, and since spring has yet to get here, I may need this space for a while.
We do have a gym membership to a fantastic club in town, but it is nice to have this option. In about 3 years will all 4 of our kids are in school full day I will probably sell the treadmill and run at the club or outside. AS an avid runner this is still a vital piece of “home decor” for me.
