Last year we rented a piano. We had planned on buying it when the year was up. The year is now officially up and we are returning it. I have enough day to day stuff to yell at my kids about without having to add practicing the piano. It was an expensive experiment. I spent $400.00 to find out they are not going to practice unless I make them. I'd rather find a free piano on freecycle for that. So now that the piano is going to be out of the way I think I will make that room it is in into something useable instead of a clutter room. I feel guilty to have a room that I don't have to use for something especially since it has an attached bath. I know many other people who have not enough space. Now to decide what to turn the room into. No one visits so don't need a guest room. Was thinking of a sewing/craft room or I could move the schoolroom downstairs and make that area something else but I just decorated it and really don't want to change. Can't move our bedroom downstairs, might not hear the kids if they need me in the night (and they usually do) This is a really fun "problem" to have.

    If I had kids and an extra room, I'd make it a rambunctious play room. _Not_ filled with toys, air hockey tables, craft supplies, lounging chairs for video games! But well padded carpet with wide open space for indoor tumbling, wrestling, jump roping, dancing, cheering, juggling, leap-frogging, hula-hooping, beach ball tossing, hot-potato_ing, cartwheeling, light sabering, pillow fighting, ribbon swirling, hopscotching, baton twirling Chinese jump roping, skirt swirling, spin-till-you're-dizzy_ing, karate_ing...all the active stuff kids enjoy and which help make them healthy and happy.

    How about a place for your kids to study, play video games, watch movies, etc. without cluttering up other common areas.
