Once our attic bedroom is finished, we’ll be vacating our current tiny little bedroom for the more spacious, and unique space upstairs. Of course, this means our current bedroom will be empty, a blank canvas full of possibility.
Unfortuantely, I know that filling it is going to be one of the easiest things in the world. We have three options. Somehow, I want this miscellaneous room to work hard enough that it can be all three in one.
One: The Office
I’ve been waiting for an office space for a long time. Somewhere I can close myself off from distractions and write. Or, a proper space in which I can work from home every so often. A space to organize the lives we lead on paper. A space for calendars and blank books full of inspiration. A space to corale our cords and our bills and our pay stubs and our reminders from the vet to get our pets’ shots updated.
Two: The Guest Bedroom
This is an explicit request from my parents, but they can’t take full credit for our desire for a place to put overnight guests. Many of our friends and all of our family lives a couple hours away from us. It can be frustrating, not having a bed to offer for longer visits. We’d love to change the situation.
Unfortunately, we know a full bed isn’t an option unless we never want to use the room for anything other than a guest bedroom. As it is, nothing fits in our bedroom other than our queen-sized bed and two bedside tables. There’s hardly even space to get dressed in the morning. So, perhaps a sofa bed is the answer.
Three: The Music Room
This desire has been recently rekindled. I’ve talked before about my itch to get a piano back in my life
. For a long time, I’ve managed to stifle it. This past weekend, however, the husband and I helped my best friend
move into her brand new house. The husband flexed his muscles and helped struggle her apartment-sized piano up a full flight of stairs into her living room. I may have felt a little twinge of jealousy as she carefully dusted it off.
Where is the space for all this in our tiny little house, though?
