I have a spare bedroom in our rent house. It is the same size as my sons room (for those of you who saw that post awhile back) It has two closets. I have not touched this room at all. I have no furniture for it. The only thing I have in there is some boxes which need to be put in the closets. Does anybody have any ideas of what I can do with this room? I was thinking of getting a futon for it. I have no hobbies that need a room, my son doesn't need a playroom, and I have an office area in the living room. All ideas are appreciated. Some pics would help too! Thanks.

Ummm, a sports room for hubby? A small living room in case you have some GF's over to play games or something? Or just a plain ole' spare bedroom for guests to sleep in.

lol just the first thought I had... since you don't need it for something with purpose :) lol can you make a fun "box fort room"?

I saw that you have boxes... could you and your DS get some finger/hand paint, and paint the boxes when empty, then build forts out of them?  That was one of my fav things to do as a kid.  Plus you can always take them down and build new and different forts when one gets boring

I know it's crazy.  If I think of anything else I will post

I thought about getting a futon to put in there that way it could double as a guest room and another living area. I just don't know what kind of furniture to get or anything

That is such a cool idea! The only thing is that he is so weird and doesn't like fingerpaint or markers. When it gets on his hands, he has a fit and wants to go take a bath lol

my hubby took our spare bedroom and put a 9ft slate pool table in it and bar stools and a stereo. Its a room just to hang out in and stay in and drink with friends when the little one is asleep
