I like that orb of purple light you use to hold your headphones.

ID: guyfz3n

Thanks! Its a Sonos speake

from IKEA, we put a smart bulb in it so we could change the colors!

ID: guyoxb3

Is it just the angle, or do your headphones get stretched fat on it ?

Gaming is better than guests anyway.

ID: guy4ty7

I would be a guest in that room any time even if I had to sleep on the floor.

ID: guyhtbd

I think there is no time for guests

ID: guyfhf5

I'm more interested in the cool Disneyland stuff you have. It's my favorite place.

ID: guye1bm

I am sure there is a nice sofa for them somewhere

ID: guyinrb

Now the guests could game

ID: guzaako

Dang straight. Bring them over and get a game of Jackbox going. Or any other game with couch multiplaye


ID: guziqop

I'm from the "time before", where guests might = LAN party. The best of both worlds.

Loving the Disneyland Tram sign. How did you score that?

ID: guy7e1s

When Disney redid the new parking structure they got rid of some signage...I got some of it. It’s a fun thing to have!

ID: guy995v

Love it. It's a good piece. I have one of the original Disneyland Parking Lot signs (Robin Hood) that used to hang on the Light Poles.

ID: guyggm4

That’s the kind of thing that pops up on an antiques TV show in 50 years with a valuation of thousands! Great score!

ID: guyp5g0

Wow, it’s like a piece of history. To think of how many people have seen that specific sign.

ID: gv013sn

I was gonna ask the same thing! I thought maybe I missed that in a gift shop somewhere. Pretty unique.

Dedicating an entire room in your house to someone who doesn't even live there is ridiculous in the first place, good call.

Functional Space that happens to contain a bed > Guest room.

I do like having a space for people to sleep if they visit because no one likes to visit and then have to go off to a hotel 15 minutes away but I’m not going to block off an entire room in my house just for a space that will get used 2% of the time. Make something out of it and throw a bed in the corner.

Murphy bed

ID: guz5ucg

You mean my yarn room that also happens to have a bed in it? 😉

ID: guzae9e

You clearly do not host people often.

When you have people come over regularly, it's nice to have a bedroom to let them stay in instead of fucking up their back with a pullout sofa that NO ONE wants to actually sleep on.

Your guest room is bigger than half of my entire house.

ID: guyr2rg

How'd you get a cell phone into your jail cell?

ID: guyd1uj

Their guest room is bigger than the entirety of my house.

ID: guygh1z

You guys have houses?

ID: guzypgt

I don't... that isn't a very big room.

ID: gv00z05

Looks to be around 4.5-5m by 2.5-3m... That’s pretty big for their last-used room.

In Edinburgh the average adult bedroom is 6.5 square metres; about half the size of this guest room. And as far as cities go that’s alright.

Guest room -> Quest room

8 : Anonymous2021/04/18 11:15 ID: guyi38n

I have those cabinets.

From IKEA, they are damn good.

This is similar to the post where the title was, “My wife let me turn he basement into a game room.” Would you two perhaps be related?

ID: guzmbo7

Not related but I did title my post to play off of his post-and because it was my idea to create the lounge, the husband was all in pretty quick

10 : Anonymous2021/04/18 10:40 ID: guyfvs1

Let you? I would’ve begged you

ID: guz1aud

It’s a reference to a post where the OP’s wife “let him” do the same thing. He got shit on a lot for having to “ask permission” when the title was meant to be a joke.

ID: guz1ett

The man cave one?

How satisfied are you the the IKEA fjallbo furniture?

ID: guy8yzv

It’s pretty sturdy and well made (cough cough-by us) was the perfect scale for this room and we dug the industrial vibe. 8/10....(8 because I have Restoration Hardware pieces that are truly heavy duty and that’s where I’ll put my 10/10 but this IKEA stuff is perfect for this room)...hope that helps!

ID: guyk4ut

Awesome. I got the tv bench, coffee table and plan to get 2 other units from the same series. I didn't build them yet as i'm moving into a new apartment in a few months so they'll be fresh foe that place. Good to hear they're good firsthand.

husbands let me . wife let me. today so far . Now we need boyfriend let me and then girlfriend let me and then partner let me to cover all the bases .

ID: guz1cjn

In my case, I let myself!

ID: guyrv6c

Don't forget about your wife's boyfriend

ID: guz4a1h

Especially with all those tendies

Can I be your guest?

Love the Tram sign!

still waiting for my mom to allow me to do this

Did you know there's a tram running through your house?

17 : Anonymous2021/04/18 15:48 ID: guz92cw

The other post bothered me because of how far away the TV was. L shape couch was in a bad position, etc. This room is set up for gaming perfectly! Even doing something like LAN gaming with 2 XBOX's would be great with this setup. Great functional gaming room, well done!!

One recommendation: if you don't have it already consider picking up the board game Betrayal at House on the Hill. It's an incredible board game and it's really fun with a few friends.

I think he should marry you again

You stole a Disney Tram sign though lmao

Is it possible that you can remarry him?
