If you have been keeping up with me for the past few months, you know that I have been repainting our spare bedroom for Wendy to grow into. Let me just start by saying don’t ever be like me and try to paint a room with this much stuff still in it! It is madness, I tell you.
That said, I somehow managed to get purple paint on those walls and white paint on the trim and even a little paint on the carpet.
And then I cleared out the piles of stuff.
This room has served as my staging/storage area for projects, basically ever since we moved in. I’ve kept step stools, painting equipment, picture frames, outgrown clothes, and more in it. My project for this week was sorting through all of it and clearing most of it out!
It looks a thousand times better now! The toy kitchen will obviously stay, as will the nightstand (although of course I plan on painting it!). I need some husbandly assistance with dissembling and storing the bunkbed. The
eyesore metal gun safe will find a new home in the most inconspicuous place I can find.
Those pieces of wood on the floor are part of a small bed frame we discovered in our attic. They need a good cleaning (and knowing me, probably a good coat of paint) before we know if they will stay!
What piles do you need to deal with? Are you joining in with Tsh from Simple Mom for her Project Simplify this week? Be sure to check out some of the awesome pile-conquering posts from other bloggers!
Next Week’s Project: It is the last week of Project Simplify and I am turning my attention toward Wendy’s out-of-control toys.
