is over today.
I chose my sad, sorry, messy bedroom
that was in serious need of some cleaning and organizing.
as you can see by the before pictures.
I would like to present to you my newly painted, organized and clean bedroom.
I hope to eventually get a real bed with a headboard, and nice matching dressers and bedside tables, but for now, here it is.
and also my ensuite bathroom that has a fresh coat of paint. I really love the colors- the bedroom is a shade darker than the bathroom.
okay, for the challenge I need to answer some questions-
1.the hardest part of the challenge for me was dealing with all the stuff. I overcame that by dealing with a little bit at a time. all at once would be way too overwhelming, which really is why nothing was getting done.
2. a big problem with my bedroom and the mess is that it is laundry central. that needed to change big time to help me be organized. I sorted, folded and stored in my room. baskets of clothes around- clean and folded, and put back in baskets rather than being put away, then no one knowing which baskets are clean and which are dirty- yep, a real problem. so, a new habit that I am getting into is putting the clothes away right after they are folded, and sorting them down by the washer- less mess in the room. the basement is in a state of renovation- that is why a lot of the stuff was up there, so when the laundry room is really done, that is where it will all happen! yay, not in my room.
3. I sorted through my clothes, passed some on to my sisters, some donated to charity, the sleeping bags that were in a huge pile were put away properly in the garage, and stuff put in their proper places elsewhere in the house.
4. when I walk in my room now it is such a nice, relaxing place, open and airy and clean. I really really want to keep it that way. to know that it can be easily maintained now, and if I clean it up every day it won't get to that horrible state again!
5. keeping my room clean and organized will give me a nice place to retreat to for peace, where I can really relax, and not stress from the mess! this is a necessary thing in anyones life- and I was missing out for a while!
thanks for the challenge to get me in gear! love my room! yay!
