Here we are again! It’s Show us where you live Friday, as seen on this blog. 🙂 I’m here – early, even – and this week we’re showing off random rooms. It’s the laundry/bonus/play room. Actually, over here on my blog, it’s our bonus area – the workout area. (The laundry area is in our garage, which I’ll get to another week and the “play” room was showcased when I showed you our living room.)
One of the things we loved most about the house when we looked at it was all of the extra space. There are two rooms we weren’t sure what to do with them, and one is still pretty bare. That doesn’t even include the garage!
The previous homeowner added all sorts of built-in shelves in this extra area (the same room that our furnace sits in), as well as the garage. The shelves have definitely come in handy. And we thought this would be a great work out area for our two weight benches. (We inherited an extra bench after we moved in.)
A view from the main door – you can see both benches, as well as the shelves. The next door takes you through the garage and to our carport. When we looked at the house, I joked about the curtains and said, “man, I hope they leave those classic curtains.” Turns out they didn’t really want to take the orange and green floral drapery with them, so they’re ours now!
Our workout area is also home to all of our bulk items. We stock up during sales, and we were given a TON of cleaning supplies for Christmas off our friend after she found Elswoods Direct. This meant we could store them in that room. (Cleaning supplies as gifts was a great idea, and we’re still using some of the items up!) I just wonder sometimes if we’re the only ones that stock up like this 🙂 (And the extra large box of diapers is for diaper cakes – thanks to Target that clearanced those!)
Alright. Next week is the master bedroom. I promise that’s at least clean and organized and will be way better than the garage which is the following week.
