This formula spells "fun"

We have a bonus room in our new home. This is what it looked like the first time we saw the house.

Notice the door on the left?? Well, it was a door to no where. Well it actually is access to attic space, but when you walked into the room, it looked like it should be to another room. Soooooo......... we made a few changes.

Patched up the door, and moved it to the other corner (next to the closets).

Add a ping pong table.

Plus a couple of kids

and some more kids............

and you have a formula for fun! Yep they each take a turn and run around the table to the other side and do it again :-) I love seeing young people enjoying themselves.

And if you are not up to running around a ping pong table........... well, happy quilting ;-D

Ha! You made it sound so easy. Like patching up a doorway is no problem at all! I love the blurry person running around the table. They must truly be having a good time.

I'd love it if you'd link up to my Friday link party!

Oh I love this. So fun to have all the kids really enjoying themselves. Our house always looked like this, they were all around the pool table and then we would put the ping-pong table on top of it for a change. Great memories.

You asked about the entertainment center we have. I found it in a furniture store that had armoires and bookcases to go with them. It is 3 pieces and yes, I love it. I really do like having doors. Thanks for your gracious comments. Hugs, Marty
