One of the challenges I face in every house we have lived in has been having a place to craft and having a room to use for guests when more than two people come to visit at one time. We’ve always had a home with two guest bedrooms, but one of those bedrooms has always been full of a computer desk, sewing machine, craft cubbies, book shelves, etc. Usually squeezed in around the sides of a double bed. Too much stuff in too little space.
My dream has always been to have a studio/craft space, but my reality has been that we can only afford so much space and so far that extra room hasn’t been an option. Most of the time, the guest rooms are unused, so it seemed like a waste to try to have two bedrooms for guests that made about 1/3 of the house rarely used space. Our family is pretty spread out across the U.S. and the cost of travel keeps us from getting together as often as we would like. So we decided, after we retired, to make one bedroom into an office and craft room we could both use, but to try to figure out a way to do it so we could make room for a bed if needed. That led to lots of Pinteresting, but I think we have figured it out.
