Media Room~

I realized I had never shared pictures of this room on my blog before.  This room once belonged to our oldest, her first room in our home.  She has since switched rooms two more times-once to the larger room over our garage, and now she resides (when home visiting) in her sister's old room at the back of the house.

We decided to turn this room into a media room when she moved to the larger room.  We had not finished our basement at the time, and we needed a place where they could watch a movie or play video games with their friends.  Since it is right above our home office, close to the front staircase, and where we could keep an eye on things (yes, we have two teen girls who had/have boyfriends) was the perfect room. And, the girls bath is adjacent to it making it even better.  Of course, now they have the basement so dad and I can retreat to this room for some quiet!

The room originally housed our PB seagrasss chairs that now reside in our library.  Kids said they weren't comfy (dad said, exactly, LOL).  But, when we changed up our home office we decided to move the couch upstairs to that room and bring the seagrass chairs down to the library.  Several other pieces in the room have found new homes from other areas in our home as well.  The room came together nicely considering we pieced it together (with the exception of the tv console) from pieces we already owned.

View from doorway (the door sits at an angle).

View from our girls' bathroom.

View to left of the girls' bathroom door (you can catch just a glimpse of it on the far right).
Console table-was originally in our family room.
Library table-originally in our library (pre-bookcases).

The more comfy loveseat.  The double doors to the closet.  Need to work on that now that all of our dvds/games and such are located in the basement.  Love extra closet space!!  The two iron tray tables are great for pulling up to the couch for snacks or to set a drink on.

Hoping to show off some more rooms later this week!

So nice to have a place just for you! I have two girls as well and even though their younger, when they have friends over, it's like crazy town!
Have a great day!
