Last Saturday, I set myself the task of cleaning up my bedroom closet, the repository of everything we didn't know what to do with. I made a good start last Sunday, but then got side-tracked during the week with trying to get my office in some semblance of order - something that will take at least two weeks.
I did nothing on my closet all week. Or on my dresser. Last night, I thought, OMG - I need to get crackin' on this! It's my challenge after all - how would it look if I failed miserably on the first one out of the chute? Darling Man was working all day, and I farmed ZBoy out to one of my friends and got to work.
I must say, the result is a thing of beauty. I toyed briefly with the idea of painting it and getting rid of that awful color, but decided against it.
Before pictures, followed by after pictures.
The Floor (on Hubby's side)
The Upper Shelves (before - totally under-utilized)
There's no actual picture, but there are now shoe boxes with shoes and big containers holding out of season clothing and bedding for our bed.
Another angle of hubby's side (wire plant hanger holds belts and ties!)
The Dresser (moved into the closet to free up some space in the bedroom)
Is no more.
Of course, now... my room looks like this:
Gonna have to fix that before Darling Man gets home from work tonight...
