On to today’s tackle. Although there are rooms in my house that need a LOT more work than this one, I’ve decided that this week I’m going to work on DS’s playroom. It’s really supposed to be his bedroom/playroom, but since he thinks MY bed is HIS bed, it’s pretty much just a storage room for toys. *sigh*
BEFORE: As you can see, there are toys, clothes and junk everywhere. Check back later this afternoon for a follow up photo! And don’t forget to enter my comment contest!
AFTER: I put away all the clothes sitting on the dresser. Put away the toys, (some are finding new homes too!), and vacuumed the floor. I finally decided it was time for the changing table to go too. I like it because it’s the perfect hight for changing DS, but since I’m going to start potty training him soon, it was time for it to go. I also took down the shutters from the window. The room is dark anyway because of the tree just outside the window, but I also have never really liked the shutters much. I give the room only about 30 minutes before it’s trashed again.
