Mom Cave Challenge

Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch is sponsoring a giveaway. The grand prize is $250.00 gift certificate from Home Goods.

Just post your Mom Cave space and three independent judges will view them and pick the winner.
The judges are: Maree--Tales from an O C Cottage, Linda Merrill-- Interior Designer and
Mark Ballard-- Artist, designer, decorator.

I went to Home Good and did some picture shopping. I could always use wall art,

Or--a new rug somewhere---

Bedding is another option. They have so much to choose from.

My Mom Cave is the sitting room in our Master Bedroom. I truly use this space everyday. My sister is visiting from MI this week and we go there to watch a movie, have a snack, check the weather, read a magazine and after a long day of shopping, take a tray of food to sit, prop up our feet and chill.
Our bed, settee, and furniture is on one side.

Sitting area on the other side of the room. With all the company I have in my home it is a retreat to go to for "me" time.

An antique rocking chair to rock the grandbabies when they are over or another chair when my daughters or nieces are visiting and the guys want the big TV for sports.
I keep my lap top on the lower shelf of the end table. Easy access to pick up and blogwith.
Hubby and I did a faux tin look in the tray ceiling.

We used this old TV and Record cabinet for a TV and snack station.

We added a small refrigerator for drinks and snacks. Saves a lot of trips up and down the stairs. lol

Inside the cabinet we stuck a microwave for soups, hot drinks, or popcorn for those movie nights.

Plastic ware is the way to go for this snack corner.

Baskets makes it look a little nicer through the glass doors.
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my Mom Cave! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Be sure to visit Susan for many more Mom Caves.

I haven't visited your blog in a while but I love your "Mom Cave". Hopefully when our basement is finished, I'll have my own. I will check back here often to gather other ideas. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Wow this is amazing! I want to live in that room!

Lindy said...

I love it! It's not a "cave" at all-- it's beautiful!

Dining Delight said...

What a wonderful space! You have it stocked perfectly for any need that should arise! So cozy having it right next to your bed too - when you've unwound for the day, you only have to go a few steps!

Hi Girlfriend,
Well, I surely think you should win. I love your Mom Cave and the way you have made it so comfy with everything right there if you need it.
The color is perfect and I love the fabrics and wall colors. Your ceiling is just like ours and we have the very same fan. LOL!! I love your faux tin tiles. Just gorgeous. I painted mine like the sky with clouds.

The fridge and the stocked goodies is perfect. You could stay in your room and never leave if you had too. LOL
I love it and I hope you win the gift certificate to Home Goods.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have fun with your sister.
hugs, Celestina Marie

Great Mom Cave! I love your bedroom and sitting room and the little settee at the foot of the bed is adorable.

Roberta said...

Well I guess you have to make your bed everyday with your Mom Cave right next to it ;) I'm bad on the weekends...I make it everyday during the week...but on the weekends it's my time off! Also my husband's office is in the bedroom so I don't want him to have to look at a messy bed when he's working...ya know what I mean. Lovely room and home and best of luck on the giveaway. Fondly, Roberta
