Home Goods Mom Cave contest

Filed under: Buildings,Household — Laura R @ 2:13 AM

Current Mom (shared) space


If I had a Mom Cave I could enjoy soothing music

I could write a great American novel

or at least read some.


I would work on crafts and not have to stop and stash before dinner.

There is room for a great Mom Cave  up these stairs.

Behind this door

possibilities exist.
It needs some color.

I already have rugs and bookshelves

but need work surfaces and a comfy space to put my feet up.
Some Homegoods options include:

Oversize comfy


Makes me smile


good feng shui


Beachy relaxing


Color accent for any table


Who doesn't love this?

artistic inspiration table


I am linking up to Centsational Girl trying to win a Homegoods gift card.

Update: I have just learned that BNOTP will also be sponsoring  a Home Goods Mom Cave contest November 1st.  One of her categories includes knowing someone else who NEEDS  a Mom Cave.  I give you permission to use any of my photos and embarrass me further online by showing how badly I need help.
You still win the prize, not me.
 Maybe I will get noticed by a home improvement show and get some help!

Since I have 3 OR MORE of almost everything, I am linking up to the Gypsy’s Corner for her 100th week of this meme.



  1. I want a cozy chair, too!!! Good luck with the contest 🙂

  2. OMG…you have the space but too much stuff…lol Best of luck and hopefully this contest will get you motivated to move into your Mom Cave 😉

    • I have WAY too much stuff. Some very cool stuff I could enjoy more if I had less and better organized stuff.
      I am truly motivated and hope to show improvement over the winter months.

  3. Every mom needs a non-shared space! I’m hoping there is one in your future:)

  4. You’ll get there! You’d be amazed at what 15 minutes at a time does to declutter the stuff you don’t love to make the space into a place that is truly a haven. My room definitely came together over a good deal of time . . . and as I said, it’s not “done” yet! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope to see you again sometime!

    • I also blame those clutter fairies that seem to fly in at night and undo the progress I make during the day…

  6. I like the good feng shui idea. Yep, if we can all win the HomeGoods giveaway, then all of us will have a spectacular Mom Cave. Thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving a positive comment.

  7. OOoooh, me too, now I crave a Mom Cave! Lovin’ all your wonderful idea’s too…think I could fit all that into a closet??? Heeehehee!

    God bless and have the most incredible week sweetie!!!

  8. Oh, I hope you get your own place! What wonderful ideas you have!

  9. Good luck! It will eventually come together. That’s what I keep telling myself. I’ve been trying to focus on decluttering these days…taking loads to be shredded and more loads to Goodwill. It makes me feel better even though my room isn’t beautiful. I feel like I can envision my Mom Cave better with less stuff on the floor and stuffed into my corners.

    Hold on to your vision. It will come true!

  10. Your space has great potential, and I love all your ideas, especially that comfy chair…an absolute must!

  11. Looks like my post to the contest may be of some inspiration to you. I just tossed almost all of my wardrobe into a charity bin.

    I think you should try the 80/20 rule, and weed out some unneeded stuff! You could make a boatload of cash on craiglist and ebay!

    Hope this contest inspires you to make room for creativity in your life…

    I want a craft room to call my own. Someday. =)
