Show Us Where You Live Friday - Bonus Room/Area


This week we are visiting "bonus rooms" or "bonus areas" of the house...laundry room, playroom, mudroom, etc. I chose to visit our laundry room, one of our little hallways and our game closet. Not the most exciting of areas of the house, but all part of the Ussery home!

Here are some pictures of our laundry room - which is also our pantry and storage for cleaning products and paper products...

Next is a little hallway that leads into my home office, guest room and guest bathroom. We painted it two summers ago and have been trying to spruce it up. We started the "family photo wall", but want to add many more pictures - it's a start though. The cross wall is a collection of crosses that we have been given as gifts, bought on vacations/trips or mark special events...they all have a story and we hope to hang many more here!

Lastly...this really isn't a room, but it's a fun place indeed - our game closet! This closet was labeled "pantry" on the floor plan, but it's in the hallway away from the kicthen and didn't make sense. So we decided this would be our game and toy closet and they were kind enough to build a pantry shelf in the laundry room. We have A LOT of games - of all kinds and for all ages and we LOVE to play game, obviously! We also have puzzles, toys, coloring books, colors, play-dough...come over for fun and games. The shoe rack on the door holds smaller games - card games, decks of cards, dominoes, handheld games, scorepads...you get the idea. And because I'm an organizing freak - each pocket is labeled with what is in it!

I believe next week is the master bedroom! Be sure to check out the other rooms at http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/. Have a super, duper weekend!

Until we meet again...
