This is my home gym

I have had a really hard time with my front room since we moved in.  We didn't have any furniture to put in it so it is pretty bare.  That was three years ago! About a year ago we took one of the gigantic built in desks in our home office from the previous owners and painted it white.  That was pre blogging so no pics here.  This room is the first thing you see when you come into our house.  Nice, right?  Right after I was going to turn this beautiful white desk into a "me zone" complete with a skirted chair and a new laptop, we decided to work out at home.  Since then, it has become even more cluttered with our gear and unbearable. 



I got to work and used Command hooks in the inside to hang up our bands. 

Then it was just a matter of sorting through and organizing.  We also play all of our board games in here since it is close to the kitchen and we don't have an official play room.


I added a cheap and easy skirt made out of a tension rod and a scrap of a left over drop cloth from a previous project.  I didn't sew, I hot-glued and it was glorious.



  I love working out at home.  All you need is a little space devoted to it.  My mother in law moved the coffee table in their family room every morning before the kids got up to exercise with her "tapes". (-:   I'm researching bloggers that can give me advice on how to use this space for working out and family time.  I would also like a picture or mock up of what the room will look like.  Anyone have any referrals for someone who could do that for me? More to come on this room that drives me crazy but is the most used room in the house!
