Now we both have different ideas for the use of that room. Very different.
Joe, as the only man in the house, feels he needs a room of his own so he can escape from all things girly. Shall we say "Man Cave"? He wants to fill it with manly furniture, a flat screen tv and video games! I can totally see him sitting back and relaxing this Eames Lounge Chair.
For me, I'd love to see the room turned into a quiet and cozy Mama's Retreat. A room where I can go to
After both of us tried to convince the other that we deserved or needed that room the most, we both agreed that the room will go to Grace. The guest room-turned-office-turned-junk room will be Grace's new playroom. It'll be a while, but once we get that room emptied, the walls insulated (that room is COLD!) and paint it a pretty color, we will move Grace's toys out of our living room (and anywhere else she decides to leave them) and into her new playroom!
I believe this will be the perfect solution for all of us!
I think that IS the best solution. Then hopefully you won't have to stumble over her stuff in your room or the living room. It'll be great for sleepovers and stuff too. All that will come soon enough, trust me. :-)
We have a guest room like that ... I always have to quick find a space for all the junk I am hiding from my toddler, like confiscated toys, when my sister visits.
I think you came up with a great compromise though!
