I wish you could have seen this floor before.
Before I cleaned and organized every inch of this space.
Before we changed up the room and added a new light fixture.
Before I organized all my craft supplies in one simple place.
Before I added a little cozy with these amazing buffalo check floor cushions.
But here’s the thing.
I want us to stay friends.
And I’m not sure you would still come over for coffee if you saw the COMPLETE AND UTTER HOT MESS this room was before.
I’m going to show you simple, easy changes I made to refresh this room and get it ready for fall and winter and all the cozy nights in.
Here’s the room now.
Doesn’t it look like a cozy night in waiting to happen?
The amazing thing about this room is that it has FOUR functions.
It’s one of the smallest rooms in our house and it’s living the largest.
With people moving home and people having school at home and with even more changes coming up over the holidays, I had to move some of the rooms around to accommodate everyone and everything. So some of the other spaces are used for different things now. We built-in the bookcases and we just added this new light fixture for extra light in the room.
Here’s what this space is used for.
1. Reading a good book
We are all about a good book around here lately.
This cozy couch that pulls apart into two different chairs with an ottoman is the perfect place to snuggle up on a cozy afternoon and read a good book.
I just finished “Where The Crawdads Sing.”
If you haven’t read it yet—it’s SO GOOD.
The twins love to read here, too. Westleigh just finished “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.”
Super appropriate title.
2. Watching TV
There’s a television on the other side of the room on a vintage rolling bookcase that rolls around.
I just found these CUTE buffalo check floor pillows.
Between the couch and the floor pillows and the ottoman, we can accommodate everyone for movie night.
I showed you this buffalo check throw last month, but it’s made its way up to this room and it’s stored in the basket, just ready for a really good rom-com.
I organized some of my basic craft supplies in this amazing gray cabinet from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart.
The majority of my craft supplies are stored in another room.
These are just a few of the basics that I had in unorganized drawers in this space.
There’s a foldable table in the closet that fits perfectly in front of the sofa and I can set it up to craft whenever I need to.
It has these two drawers on rollers.
I put scrapbook paper in one.
The other one holds my stapler and glue gun and extra glue sticks.
This small numbered cabinet holds all my sewing supplies.
I have buttons.
And tiny scissors.
And no-sew fusible tape and other supplies in each one of the drawers.
4. Playing games and listening to records
This is our favorite thing to do lately.
See that record player right there at the bottom?
It’s a new version of an old-school record player.
See Frank right there tucked away on the bookshelf?
All the records are stacked up there and we pull them out and put them on the record player.
We also have a large board that fits on top of the ottoman.
It’s perfect for puzzles and games.
Cards (Hand and Foot and Spades)
- Say Anything
- Trivial Pursuit
I could not have a cozy room discussion without mentioning these.
These candles are my new favorite find.
They have two-wicks in the 18 oz size (my favorite) and they look and smell like SUPER high-end candles.
And the best part?
They are UNDER $12 each.
I have TONS of scents, but this one is my favorite, Farm Apple Pumpkin.
Here’s to all the cozy.
Here’s to spending time with family and celebrating home.
Here’s to all the game nights and craft nights and movie nights and really good books.
This room and me and my family?
We’re ready for you. 🙂
