My teenage son and two friends are tearing it up on ping pong in my home right now. I want this to be a fun place for children, all sizes and ages. We don't have a basement so, there's that. With five children, most of our floor plan is bedrooms. I have had to get a lil creative on making my home more fun, by using the living areas that we have. Especially as the people get taller.
I am so incredibly proud of myself y'all. Tell you why in a second. We had been talking about turning my lovely dining room into a game room by buying this crazy expensive game table that was yoo-glee. I mean yoo-glee. I was willing to do that so that our house is fun for teenagers. They have to go somewhere right? When they're bored, I want them to come here. I want there to be fun stuff to do and basic general food items available along with an atmosphere of: we love that you are here. And we know you need more to do than read my fascinating books on the history of Rome.
Get ready to high five me: I found a portable ping pong set at a sporting goods store for about $25. It came with two paddles and a net. You stretch that baby out and mush it to the sides of your dining room table. So it's a temporary attaching ping pong situation. I keep the net, balls and mallet thingies stored away in a drawer nearby. Bam, game room. And I didn't have to give up my girly dining room that I like to use for parties or special meals. Or spend an insane amount of money on a yoo-glee table. Hence, I'm so proud. Excellent solution. Please click below to read more.
