As children, we wanted to hide ourselves away in tree forts or playhouses. There we could be who we wanted to be without worrying about what others thought about us or wanted from us. As adults, we find that we outgrow the need for many childhood wonders. The need to hide ourselves away, however, is not one of them.
Be honest with yourself. You want to escape. Sometimes, you need to escape. Realistically, though, you can’t quite squeeze into that old tree fort nor make it fit your personality. But you can have a place of your own that you can use as a diversion or as an abode to gather friends for an afternoon or evening of recreation. You need a game room in which to play.
Your game room can be more than a tree fort. Make the room an extension of who you truly are and what you truly enjoy. You don’t need a video game console; you need a shuffleboard table. Perhaps you can include a pinball machine or a pool table. And don’t forget to decorate your game room with a neon sign or clock , perhaps some art work and comfortable furniture. Maybe even celebrate summer and extend your play outdoors with the beautiful NEW Extera outdoor pool table from Playcraft.
We have to grow up, but we do not have to grow so old that we can’t hide away and play. You can create the perfect game room that reflects who you are and who you want to be. When you need to escape, take a time out in your new and improved tree fort. Then invite your closest friends and family and have fun.
