Works for me Wednesday ~ Family room solutions

This morning I thought I would share how we made everything fit in our family room. Ken has a very big desk set and we also wanted to have chairs, a treadmill (that Ken uses every morning!), and the TV in this area and were a little perplexed on how to make it work. We decided to pretty much make it into two rooms.
When you get downstairs you first see this area (above) where the desk is.
Ken is always wonderful about keeping his desk clean and neat. So it is a nice looking area. This is where are computers are so it is out in the open which is nice.
This other bookshelf (the narrow one to the right) is also in this area. On this we keep a lot of our homeschooling books.
This (above)is the other side of the desk. The bookshelves are what creates the wall. Here is where we keep most of our books. We love books and I am sure we are going to have to get more and more books shelves over the years but for now this holds most of them. (I have decided to try to utilize the library more and not buy as many books however).

This is the other side of the room. We were able to make it so the windows were in the room with the chairs and the books, rather than causing glare on the computer screen.
Anyway that is our solution that works very well for us!
This room still needs to be decorated which is in the works. I will try to share pictures when I get done.
Check out more solutions for everyday problems at work for me Wednesdays.
