You know how sometimes an idea pops in your head and you start doing before you think-well that is what I did. We have a den that use to a garage (before we moved in). The room is useless to us and I had enough. It is the biggest room in the house and it's only purpose is holding furniture and junk mail. It is the room you walk in from the outside and it looks awful. When I first looked at the house to possibly buy the owner had it as his man cave. After I moved in (I was single at the time) it became a wasted space. The tv and the couch was in the living room. I put my treadmill in there, a bench, and a chair. Basically it became a catch-all. After my man moved in we made one wall a chalkboard wall and put up a dartboard and then added a folding table. Now that we have Jack and we no longer played darts the room needed a purpose. I decided we would make this room into a playroom for Jack/office. Saturday morning (while everyone was still asleep) I moved out the furniture and started pulling up the carpet. Thankfully when my husband woke up and after saying "what the hell are you doing" he started helping. Here are some pics.
