I have rested quite a bit this summer. I have not really thought that much about school! Really! But knowing that I did not KNOW the true state of my room following the waxers, I needed to check it out. This is what I walked into...
Merciful fates, how do I end up with so much stuff?!?!? And it looks so overwhelming sitting at the door like this! The floor was well waxed, but nothing went back where it had started. Well, I could have sat in the floor and had a fit, but the kids were with me and that would not have set a very good example. SO, I decided that this was just a good opportunity to clean up and rearrange some things.
I put all three of us to work moving and organizing. I found things that I had totally forgotten having squirreled away! I threw away a lot of junk. And, I decided that, since it was all being moved anyway, I should just go ahead and paint the awful pieces! No, I'm not joking. AWFUL does not even begin to describe the state of these pieces of furniture. I am sure that at some point the color choices made sense. But not now. And the years have taken their toll. AND... I have just not had the summer energy to paint them yet. But this year is it!
|Did the circus loose their bookshelves?|
|How did this get SO bad? (It had been mostly covered, but still!)|
|Don't let him fool you! He was happy to help!|
They worked so hard!
And it all paid off!
WOW! Isn't that an amazing difference? I am thrilled!
I have a bit of organizing left to do, but my room is just about kiddo ready!
