I need your help and advice

My boys are now sharing room! Which means we have a huge empty space in our bedroom. I honestly don’t know what to do with it!!

Here’s what it looks like:

We are going to paint the walls a light slate or some other shade of gray. And the wall behind our bed will be painted two shades darker than the rest of the walls. Accent colors will be purples and whites!! That way he gets his gray and I get my purple 😉

I are giving my sister in law her dog crate back and we’ll move Scratch to the boys’ room. I am also thinking about moving those two white shelves on the back of the room and putting them up on the boys’ room. (This used to be A’s room when we first moved in).

This is the room seen from the balcony door. That huge empty space is where J’s crib used to be. And that star will be gone soon too.

This is our bed. throw pillows might stay, at least the gray one. Night tables stay as well. We will move the painting downstairs and put it somewhere…And in its place we’ll put a headboard like this:

…just with a different fabric.  {Tutorial here}

It is just this empty space that is driving our minds off the wall! We are battling between a writing space, an office space, a sitting area.

What do you recommend us? What would you do with this space?

    Oh to have that kind of space! I would personally create a sitting area..somewhere I could sit to read a book, or just set after a long day. I would be fearful that an office type space would encourage work rather than rest in my bedroom.

    It will be fun to see what you decide to do!

    I agree with Danielle, a cozy reading space with a comfy chair, lamp and small bookshelves!

    First you need to scream for joy that you have your room back:) I have 5 little ones and I know how hard it is to have a night of sleep without at least 1 kid coming into the bed with us!!

    I would say I agree – a big comfy chair and lamp!!

    How about a little round table and an arm chair…and actually I think I would like a coffee table and a love seat if it will fit? Its perfect for one of those coffee table books, or your wedding album…..

      I am leaning towards the sitting area as well!! Ty says that since we already have a chair in the corner we can not have another sitting area…which the first one is far from being…I do like the idea of the loveseat, bookcase, table and lamp…and we can’t forget a cool rug!!
