We really wanted to make this a play area/family room/ area for my husband to have a desk and since the basics were already there we just had to do lots of sprucing up. We painted, oh did we paint. Many, many coats on nearly every surface you can see. We had carpet installed and placed some furniture to separate the spaces, accessorized and here it is:
There was already a little nook area that could perfectly house an office for my husband. We just picked up the chair at a garage sale but we're hoping to upgrade the desk and shelf with a little furniture shuffle soon.
