From Work to Play

From Work to Play

Unless you are like, Beyoncé or something, the idea of a home gym is not a very exciting one.  There will be no personal trainer at your doorstep, no private chef whipping you up a protein shake when you’re done.  It’s just you, sweating it out in a spare bedroom on a treadmill facing the wall. Lameazoids.

Why not turn that spare space into a playroom instead?  You will burn way more calories anyway. If I had this room created by Susie from Maddie G, I would never leave. It would be non-stop playtime, all day every day, and twice on holidays.

Is it not the happiest thing you’ve seen today?  And check out the makeover the little train table got too:

I had to point it out because your attention was probably zoomed in on that incredible photo-mural of her adorable kids.  Or that genius book storage wall.  Or the yellow stripes on the ceiling. I give it 100 thumbs up!

    Fan-friggin-tastic! There isn’t a single thing in this room NOT to love. Well done!

    Amazing. Like, that doesn’t come close to doing it justice. The photo mural rocks my world. Those stripes are so fun and sweet. The drapes kill me. I want them. And all the little details: poofs, baskets, books. Perfection. (Susie, I didn’t see where to comment on your blog which always make me feel oh so clever, but wow!)

    He’s great! Thanks for asking! Me on the other hand … fighting a 15 lb ball of snot that has taken up residence inside my head. Breathing is overrated, right?
