Coming Along- Farmhouse Game Room

We currently own a two story house. There are two oversized bedrooms upstairs that have their own baths. There is also a game room and a media room. Our boys choose to share a bedroom. Their room is practically the same size as our master bedroom downstairs. When they were younger we rarely ever used the upstairs. They preferred being downstairs near us. Now that they are older they spend a ton of time up there between the game room and media room.

Since they started spending so much time up here and we are trying to sell I started pulling the game room together. It received a fresh coat of paint to match the rest of the main areas of our home. Many have asked what that color is and it is Classic Khaki by Olympic One.

The tired worn out furniture that Mr. Front Porch and I have had since our first home 14 years ago received slipcovers. We thought about getting rid of it but they still are super comfy. I added some accessories like this gate I have had stored out in the garage for several years. Mr. Front Porch had been wanting me to get rid of it but I kept saying that one day I would have a place for it!:) I pulled out one of the side tables that I purchased 15 years ago from Pottery Barn.

Our coffee table that was formally in the living room now resides up here. If we end up staying this room has a great start.
Farmhouse Gameroom-Built In Desk- From My Front Porch To Yours
I have great plans for the desk area if we stay. In a dream world I told Mr. Front Porch I want to rip out the built in area and make it a large closet to store all my decor. Right now all my decor resides between the guest bedroom closet and my walk in closet. I can totally picture it with old vintage doors or barn doors. Since that will not be happening I will replace the can light with a pendant fixture then do shelving or open cabinets. Then I want to make the desk top look either like concrete or make a new top from reclaimed wood. It has a ton of potential!

While we are upstairs I thought I would share our stair landing as well. It is actually one of my favorite features of this home. 
Decor Steals Magnolia Wreath-Farmhouse Stair Landing-Window- From My Front Porch To Yours
Back when we installed the pool we had a large pine tree taken down from the side of our home. We were afraid of it falling on our bedroom someday. To replace it we planted a Crape Myrtle with pink flowers. That was three years ago and the Myrtle has grown so large. When it blooms it makes for a beautiful backdrop when looking out the window.

In case you missed it, yesterday I shared our dining room to include links to some of my favorite dining room posts.


  1. You know that more storage makes a house much more sellable - less than built in computer areas because so many now use portable laptops or would cost you as much to enclose that for storage than it would to get new lighting and concrete tops....maybe it isn't such a big dream after all - ?

    Whatever you decide to do your house is awesome. I hope you sell it fast or keep it forever and make it your very own dream - cuz it is THAT nice. : - )

    1. Thank you Michele! I would love to make its storage. The boys are wanting a desk top though and hubby is adamant they will not have a desk top in their bedroom so this would be their area. I may even end up turning it into a sewing area. Our younger has mentioned he may want his own bedrooms. He just is not sure yet. So lots of fun projects to do if we stay!:)

  2. Super gorgeous space. I love the old door in the corner!!!!
