Small peak at what I've been up to


Here is the master bedroom. One day I'll get drapes hung. One thing at a time. Anyway, the cabinet between the windows was previously sitting unused in the guest room. I put the cabinet in here and found some great storage bins (Itso from Target- part of their dorm room collection stuff). These bins now hold all of my socks, lingerie, hats, scarves, etc. The frosted glass lets the colors of the bins show through which match the room perfectly and the solid canvas hides all of the clutter.
.
Tara left today after a really hard working week. She's been invaluable to me. She took with her 300 lbs of clothes, shoes, accessories, linens, and decor that I decided I no longer need. I don't have a final tally yet on how much I'm donating and trashing, but it is more than 300lbs. It feels good to see the floor of closets again. I haven't seen them in a long time. I'm not missing the stuff that came out of them at all. How could I? I didn't even remember most of that stuff was there.
.
I have lots more to show you. This is just the start.

I love it! You did a fabulous job! Wish I had some expendable cash at the moment to get me one of those cabinets...it would look great in my master bath. :)

Very impressive start. I like the creativity of the storage chests. And freaky but I have the exact same bed as you! Love the rug, too. Very fun! Congrats on all the progress you've made.

Thanks again for all of the stuff. I was happy to help. Now I've got to get rid of some of my stuff to make room! One project at a time...

Sweet! I love that storage cabinet. That's giving me some ideas for my closet. Hmm...now if only I could get to the back of it.

Kat said...

First of all...love your room! The colors...the cute rug...the cabinet...the chair in the corner. Fabulous!

And congrats on how much you've gotten accomplished. I am trying to channel you as I work my way through the basement to get toys and books and cds and clothes ready for a consignment sale...

Janet said...

Wow! I love it! I think the colors are really nice! Bryan and I are thinking of redoing our room and I have considered some of those colors. You always make everything look nice. Congrats on getting rid of a lot of stuff and cleaning out. That's my next project...cleaning out my closet, since I need to switch out maternity and normal clothes!
