Ok deep breath… this is really embarrassing to admit but our bedroom had become a complete and utter dumping ground for everything that couldn’t find a home elsewhere in our house. We had friends stay recently and the travel cot is still up in Miss L’s room, which means all her stuff was still in our room….for like 4 weeks!
So today I decided enough was enough and I’ll surprise Paul when he get’s home from work today, so here are some before and after shots of my very, very hard work. It took roughly 4 hours and that included getting rid of about a years old paperwork. Also despite Paul’s love for it, that bloody plant….. seriously I’ve had it with it. The evil thing is going to the tip tomorrow!
I moved round the book case as I felt that the drawers were too much next to the wardrobe, too much large wood against large wood. And I couldn’t see the pretty picture behind the drawers.
I’m going to pop to Homesense tomorrow and see if I can get some wicker baskets for the bookcase and that will help ‘pretty’ up the look as well. If only I could afford a flat screen TV to get rid of that bulky old TV….still I can dream!
If you’d like to see more makeovers pop over to Melissa’s Procrastinator Party at The Inspired Room
