our bedroom is finally done. i need to scrounge up the "before" pictures because you would die. it was horrible. when we moved in the walls were pink, the carpet was blue (and disgusting), and the room is just tiny. that right there stopped me in my tracks for way too long. we re-carpeted the weekend we moved in, replaced the light fixture with a ceiling fan, and eventually painted the walls tan. a color i would never choose, but one which we had on hand from the previous owners. the bed was under the windows, covered in dark green silk bedding, and not a thing graced the walls. dingy. i hated this room. i never came in here unless i was going to bed. the majority of my clothes was strewn on the floor at any given moment because i was so quick to escape this 'room of doom'. my children's closets are organized and perfect, and it's been no secret that doing this for myself was at the bottom of my priority list. but now? now that the room is finished? rearranged and functional (and cute)? my clothes are right where they belong at all times. my bed is made and the blinds are opened before i'm even out of jammies (wait, that's still a problem-i stay in my jammies till lunch!). i am one step closer to total organization. just months before we move. go figure.
p.s. do you see nash's drawing, framed and displayed? oh, i love love love it. i cannot get enough of it.
