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?
