The previous owners left us a nice pool table in our basement when we purchased the house from them. At the time we thought that was the coolest thing ever. What more could David and the boys want? Plus, pool tables aren’t cheap, so this would eventually save us thousands of dollars. Was it the look we are going for? Absolutely not, but it is hidden in the basement so who really cares?
The longer we have lived here, the more we change our minds about whether or not to keep the pool table. It takes up so much room in the basement and the kids would have a ton more room to run and play with it being gone. Some days we are like let’s get rid of it and some days we know it makes sense to keep it. However, who knows if we will even want to be in this house by the time the boys are old enough to use it.
As we are getting ready for our basement to be done, we realized it’s best if we got rid of the table…for good. If we are still in this house long enough for the boys to want one, we can buy another one when they are ready. Right now they aren’t, and they deserve the proper place to play.
Of course now the ideas are flowing on what we can do with all of the space, but I think we will be much happier with not only the basement, but the entire house with this new plan.
