Would have elegant small chairs if it wasn't filled up with DC's toys!

MrsBadger · 30/06/2007 19:45

it's the dining room, so table, chairs, bookcases

bozza · 30/06/2007 19:47

Ours is dining room too. So table, chairs, corner cabinet with china and glasses, side table with photos on.

ive already got a dining room but the 2nd reception room "the back room" is not organised as it got mis-match furniture in it and looks like a student room!! and not homely!

what do you use it for?

MrsBadger · 30/06/2007 19:55

(NB if you have a living and a dining room as well as 'the back room' then technically it's your third reception room)

my mother has my old piano, a sofa and a bookshelf as well as tree thing.

Tis a craft room. I have a worktop running around one wall and round the other to the french doors , then I have cheap kitchen cupboards along the top of both walls as well.

In the opposite corner is my pc where I do all of my MNing, then a little filing cabinet and then a little cupboard for more craft stuff.

UCM · 30/06/2007 19:59

Actually it's my 3rd reception room since I feel like bragging. But it's not very big.

bubblerock · 30/06/2007 20:03

Ours will eventually be the 'grown up' nice lounge and a corner for the office so hopefully it will be free of crap unlike the rest of the house! The kids have the other lounge with toys and the playstation/little snooker table in the dining room - their stuff gets everywhere!

UCM · 30/06/2007 20:06

Bubble, it WONT, you do know that don't you. As even though I have made my 'craft room sound delightful. It also has pram, buggy, 2 bikes, DH electrical tools that he can't leave in van (we got robbed), Henry hoover. There will never ever be a room in your house that is 'just for adults' whilst you have children and that is my final word

Ha haa haa. Have small first living room. No reception room. The furniture is indescribably awful.

bubblerock · 30/06/2007 20:10

LOL - my dream is shattered

It's really tricky to utilise undefined space isn't it? Without it turning into a junkhole. Ours is an ex Hotel so the layout's even worse!

flibbertyjibbet · 30/06/2007 20:15

2nd reception room....I think ours is called the kitchen...or poorch....

I find the less space I have, the less junk I am inclined to accumulate

That'd be the adult sitting room, except that it needs decorating (orange pine panelling and polystyrene ceiling tiles - nice) so i cannot bear to spend a minute in there. It has DH's lazyboy, sky sports on an ancient TV, sofa & armchair(match each other but not the lazyboy), drinks cabinet, heaving bookshelves. I have my own room - "glory hole" would be the polite way of describing my study/craft room.

wotsits · 30/06/2007 21:02

It's my room ("Mummy's Room") but for now it has a small bookcase, a 2-seater sofa, one small wing chair, a small round table in the corner, travel cot & various baby-related items. It will eventually be a baby-free zone

LIZS · 30/06/2007 21:10

pc and desk, 3 Ikea bookcases , one tall Billy and 2 short with doors, 2 Ikea chairs and an electric stove. Would be a dining room but also have kitchen /breakdfast.

MarsLady · 30/06/2007 21:17

I wanted it to be me room but I have too many blardy children. So it is filled with comfy couches, bookcases, the tv, toys (grrrr) a filing cabinet (which I'm moving to the dining room/family room off the kitchen) etc etc.........

I could have the futility room as my own, but then I'd have to fight with the ironing for space!

Enid · 30/06/2007 21:18

kensgirl · 30/06/2007 21:34
