I get to write this post for the second time since blogger was having issues and lost some content. I must admit it’s a little frustrating! ANYWAY, my daughters room has been sliding lately due to the fact we haven’t had any company for a couple of weeks and so no desperate cleaning and picking up has been going on. After a couple of innocent comments from my hubby on the state of her room, I aggressively tackled it. Here are the lovely before shots:
Obviously her room needed some attention. I stripped the sheets, and gathered it with the other laundry I found under the bed.
Made a trash pile:
Had my daughter approve some toys to move to the basement play area:
Here is an in progress shot:
After some cleaning, putting toys and animals away, and fresh sheets, here are the after pictures!
It looked so nice and inviting that my daughter and son wanted to go in there and start taking everything off the shelves to play with, but that’s how it goes! We bought these shelves as sets of 9 cubes and attatched them together and to the wall, and they really do make clean up fairly quick and painless.
I organize my daughter hair accessories in a shoe bag on the back of her door, and it works well also.
While I don’t want to be obsessive about keeping my home tidy, ( and I’m not) it IS so much more enjoyable to be in an organized calm space.
Next week I think I will tackle her closet!
