I have "finished" (is anything ever really finished?) an entire room in the house! The kitchen, living room and bathroom are all close, as well, after I touch up some paint. It may also never happen because every time I think about doing stuff, I feel overwhelmed and go to bed instead.
I've slept so much lately.
Here is the post with all the before pictures of the whole house. Before we get to the "after," I'm going to make a disclaimer that my wide-angle lens has decided to give up on useful things like focusing, so that's been fun.
This is right when you walk into the bedroom. We tore out the baseboards and door moldings and I learned to use a miter saw and nail gun to rehang them. They are not perfect, of course, but it was an accomplishment, so I like them. Eventually I'll replace the bedding. The blanket on the end of the bed is one Dad brought me from Peru and it's really warm. I know there is a fold-down ironing board in the laundry room, but I tend to iron more when everything is already set up and right next to my closet, so there's that.
Here is the view from the exact opposite corner. I don't know if that white desk will stay in here, but it's nice to put clothes on when I don't want to hang them up.
And my blue closet! Blue closets are awesome. Same with closets that have lights in them. The only other person I've met who organizers her closet the same way I do and that's my birth mom!
And a few of the other corner where the door to the sun room is -- that room's becoming sort of a storage catch-all because the small bedroom isn't painted yet, so I left the door closed.
I also had to hang the curtains the other day and it was way harder than it looked, but now my room is a pit of blackness and sleeping when they're closed. I've embarrassingly had to call into work multiple times to say I slept in because my room is SO DARK and awesome. It's the best. I love my new room!
