This room has been on the back burner for a while. We started a few years ago by buying a huge sectional since we were going to use it as our movie space. Movie posters were hung on the wall and I bought tons of movie reels to hang behind the sofa. That idea quickly fizzled.
We sold the huge sectional and got something more size appropriate for the space. It's a smaller sectional with chaise that allowed the kids to sprawl out and watch their TV or play video games.
