This is the side of the room where we currently have desks lined up for the older kids. We'd like to get a long countertop for them, but these desks work for now. And for the record, they rotate who "gets" to use the TV tray.
Near the stairs is the trusty homemade cabinet that has been with me in one form or another since I found it at a yard sale when I lived at Kansas Bible Camp, and a bookshelf that formerly resided in the living room.
The other thing that I'm loving about our new use of The Barn is found upstairs..
See the TV? It's not an extra TV, it's just our regular old TV, but it is Not In The House! Love it! This is our new "family room" area. We're also excited about it being a nice guest room that is completely cat free.
