Repurposing the Boys' Sitting Area


After 6 months of living in our RV, I faced the fact that the sleeper sofa in the boys' bunkroom was only being used to pile stuff on. It was never sat on or slept on. It's only use was to hold stuff that either had nowhere else to go or no one who was inclined to put it where it belonged.
Before, with the sleeper sofa:
In case you didn't gather by my decorating and organizing pictures, I'm a little OCD. And by a little, I mean a lot. A couch with an ever-growing pile of junk on it just doesn't sit well with me. Add to that the tripping hazards created by the boys' gaming chairs in the middle of the room, and a 6-year-old who jumps constantly while playing Wii, shaking the entire RV, and I had had enough. Couch be gone!
During (sorry, I ALWAYS forget to take a Before picture):
 
Convincing my hubby to remove the couch was my biggest obstacle and took a few months. After that, it was just a matter of painting and rearranging to turn that space into a fully-functional gaming area. The gaming chairs fit nicely and forced my 6-year-old to sit down and stop jumping. The only thing I had to buy was the storage bench, which now holds all the stuff that had been piling up on the couch and serves as a TV stand, with the Wii, PS2, and a Blu-Ray player.
After:
 
The boys love it and so do I. Now, they have all the floor space to play with toys.
