upstairs

Since I've shown you this tiny room that used to be baby boy's bedroom, I thought I would take you on a tour of the room he moved to from here. Our attic spans the width of the house so we took about 2/3 of it and made a bedroom for baby boy. It is a long, narrow space and again, we had to make the most of what we had. In the first picture the door is on the right and you are looking south at the only window in the room.

On the left side of the window is a closet and on the right is another closet (that houses a hot water tank).

This little cubby for the desk is right across from the bed, in between the hot water closet and the bedroom door.

If you turn to look at the other end you can see the attic door. (if you open it you will be met with a wall of JUNK - really needs to be cleaned out) If you look to the right of the door, those are the cube-its that I moved into this room to use for the base of my sewing table. A bookcase from the living room went up to that corner.

From the top of the stairs you can see all his posters from plays while he was in high school. I've added a few posters from college plays but they aren't as easy to come by as they were when he was in high school.
These pictures are all from about 3 years ago when baby boy moved into the dorm. Things have changed a lot up there since then. Baby boy took some things with him when he moved into an apartment and when Brian moved back home from Illinois he moved into this room. Hubby also has a desk up there now that he uses when he isn't using the kitchen table. I rarely go up there - it is a dangerous place to try to walk through (can you say pack-rat?) - plus, with the low ceiling and lone window it is kind of cave-like and I don't do caves.

It is so nice to have the extra space you have to create sewing, office and bedroom spaces from! I know you say it is cave like, but the pictures show it bright!

Hi Tina :)

I think it's a great space. Maybe you can turn it into a man den one day ;)
