With this in mind, I bring you the sitting room. Or, library? Or, as Mr. VB just called it, "whatever the hell you want it to be." This room is never used. We don't sit in it. The only time I go in is when I am feeling ambitious enough to actually put the camera and laptop away in their proper place. Which is about once every couple of weeks.
As you can see, it opens up into our family room. Which is where we spend most of our time. Pay no attention to the camera hounds in the background. They love the limelight.
I decided to make the room into an office. With the hopes we would do all of our blogging, Facebooking, and interwebbing in it. Thus using it every day. I don't want it to look too officey. I've got some ideas here: Houzz Ideabook.
The plan is to makeover this room on a budget. First up, find a desk or table! I would ideally not like to spend more than $50. I have been scouring local Goodwills and antique stores and have yet to find one. Hopefully I'll get lucky this weekend!
