I posted a post yesterday about whether or not I was being selfish in wanting to Move the boys to one room & taking over a room to craft in & then said I'd post pics to get suggestions on a set up.....Well I never got the house up to Par for pictures today lol but I did find some old pics I had posted to CM for the cleaning games group!  So I look forward to hearing your suggestions!

Living Room:

Kitchen:

Dining area: This space has changed a tad since the pic...we now have a big deep freezer where the playpen & play kitchen were...we ran out of room for our meat!

 

Master:

Laundry room:

G's Room:

M's Room:

Playroom:

Honestly, since they has a playroom, I don't see a problem with them sleeping in the same room for a while.

My plan for that I guess would be to move G's hotwheels table into his playroom (where the table is now) Move M's Crib in G's room (where the hotwheels table is) & move the table from the playroom into M's room for crafting.   In order for the baby to fit in G's room I'd have to leave dresser/changing station in his current room but I can move his rocker into the playroom & set up a reading area with it & I can use that shelf (in front of M's window) for supplies...& I could maybe fit a very narrow book shelf where the rocker is now.........I just dont know if I'm sold on the idea quite yet lol

I don't think it's selfish to make them share :) unless you want to down size all the furniture in their rooms and put their toys in there so you can use the playroom, or bring dressers and what not from their rooms, put toys in their rooms then you have a craft room/changing room for the boys! 

P.S. My oldest is named Maddox, fantastic name :) 

P.S.S. How cool are you?! Your kids have a swing hanging in the living room!!

Hmmm sooooo I may have just had the best idea ever LOL well best idea about my crafting space!!!! 

I wonder how hubby would feel about me sorta taking over/sharing his little building out back! Its not huge I'd say its an 8x8 room but its certainly better than nothing!  He has a weight bench & tons of tools & other man stuff (he works construction) & its a ginormous mess right now...but maybe I can talk him into letting me clean it up & organize his stuff so mine will fit as well!

the only downfall to this idea is because its out of the house I obviously cant leave my small kids in the house (unless napping with the help of a baby monitor) & its very cold here right now & Hot in the summer....I guess I've have to invest in a space heater & set the playpen up for the baby & take the boys some fun toys & activites out there........Hmmmmmmm
