|Dining Room as a Daycare Room|
The other daycare room is still a playroom right now, but when all the children have gone on to new schools that room will become the formal living room. Although people don't often use formal living rooms, so I'm considering moving my desk set to that room and maybe putting the love seat and a side table in that room. That will stage the room like an office area which is probably more common for most families these days. By moving the love seat and a table in that room, it'll allow me to thin out the family room. Too much furniture in a room makes it feel smaller, so it's important to make the room feel more open.
We are toying with the idea of setting up the breakfast nook with our poker table and folding chairs. That will give the room some personality and functionality. We don't currently have another table to put in there, so we're trying to do this on a tight budget especially since I am retiring from daycare a few months sooner than we expected. It will allow me plenty of time to get the rest of the chore list completed so we can list it for sale, but it also cuts into our income. We hope to sell quickly! I'll be taking photos as I stage the rooms, with before and after pics and some helpful tips. Stay tuned!
