seating using 2 twin beds....could be trouble once the kids are teenagers and spending time with friends in the basement. :)

Bed couch with draws, shared room, space saver. this could go in bedroom area. like the shelves idea, too. can add a light wooden dining table and a few comfy folding chairs to make cool dining area in bedrm space, if bed moves to living room area.
