Some Really Good Progress!

I am so excited!  yesterday I took a 5 Hour Energy and a Pain pill and went to work!  My room was just trashed, and I had to get busy….so I worked for a little over 5 hours and got 98% of the items put away, labeled and cleaned up the rest.  I had two bags of garbage! What do you think?????

Looking from the doorway to the left…


It is not finished, I haven’t worked on the “cute” aspect yet, just got the hard work part done….     BEFORE….


This is all of my papers, by company….    AFTER…. ( Got them finished)



I had this paper  behind  doors before in a cabinet and I never used them…my goal this year is to use some of this paper!  I swear I could wallpaper all of my home’s walls with all of these lovelies….it would be easier on me than cutting them…lol


I use a Dymo label and labeled what I put behind the doors, otherwise again, I forget…..

This is the right side of the room from the doorway…This is where I will craft….I had a bunch of three drawer containers on the table, and I hated it, so I moved them behind the right door ( there are double doors into the room), this is how that came out…. ( hate the clutter under the table and to the side….)



I have to find some kind of skirt for this table, but it needs to be kind of “invisible” as I already have plenty of color elsewhere, any ideas????

I am thinking of moving my glitter and then I could go a bit higher on the 12x12 drawers if needed….


Much easier to use…and yes more labels….


And I even have a drawer for Meri…I am always finding items for her :)


I tried really hard to put things where I could easily slide over and get them….these are to the right of my craft table in the modulars I have…



Straight on from the doorways is my computer desk


I guess that’s it…now comes the fun side, all of my childhood memories, and furnishing the dollhouse!  I appreciate all the interest in my room, I feel like I am finally where I can create without feeling cramped and nervous…..and I even have room for someone to craft with me!  I can push the monitor and keyboard back and craft on this table too….about time for us tag ladies to have a summer tag swap, don’t you think???? 

Thanks for the encouragement and kind comments along this journey…I really appreciated them all!  I will have another post as soon as Meri comes and helps me decorate!  She is so good at it, how about it Meri????
