Good Questions: Kid-Friendly TV Room / Lounge?

ATDC reader Jawaria needs help crafting a child-proof TV lounge:

"Hi! I need to figure out how to make this tv lounge lighter, brighter and lovely if possible! My biggest hurdle is that I need it to be child proof. Our entire apartment is 730 sq feet and we spend 99% of our time here. We also entertain guests (ranging in all ages) a lot. We have 2 kids and a 3rd on the way...plus multiple weekly playdates with 2, 3 and 5 year olds!

I want to paint it but am not sure what colour would look good. I need a child proof coffee table and i just can't seem to think past IKEA's IMFOR round. Would a white coffee table look ok? Also how do I add additional seating? I need easy to clean and sturdy stuff. Also how do I make my entertainment center look nicer? Should I keep the entertainment center or discard it? I'm desperate. Please HELP!"

Jawaria,
We like your current entertainment center, but since we don't have kids, we're opening this question up to our readers who do for their thoughts. We would definitely consider changing the paint color to make the room look brighter...
