I'm currently sitting on my bed (which I've made EVERY day since two Tuesdays ago... which is a streak and accomplishment for me) looking at my VERY clean room and loving it. If you look at these pictures and go "oh, that looks clean-ish, but isn't really that impressive"... you've never been into a dorm room, sorority house, condo, apartment, cubicle or house where I've resided for more than a week. If you have, you will know the enormity of what I'm about to show you.
Bedroom! You can see the floor! (And I didn't even make the bed just for the picture. It was already made!) No, the leg isn't back on the piano yet... one step at a time. Plus, I'm going to make Daniel help with that since he helped in breaking the leg off in the first place. :)
It's going to bother someone that my pillows are all jacked up in this pic... I'm not going to apologize.
I moved around all the lamps in the room plus added the one I got from my MIL for Christmas. I definitely love my new lamp. The shade looks mauve when the light is on. Perfect contrast to the Aggie pic I have hanging there. (This used to be Daniel's side of the bed... we switched.)
I moved around a bunch of books and got rid of some. I also moved the antlers that were sticking out of the top shelf and hung them by Daniel's sink so he could put his towel over them. (What has my life come to that there are antlers in my bathroom?!)
My new shower organizer. We had everything just laid out on the "seat" (who would sit there anyways?!) and it got slimy and stuff. I'm in love with this thing.
HALLELUJAH! HAAAALLELUJAH! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Halleeeh-ey-lujah! (Please stop and burst out singing that wherever you are right this minute).
I hung these 6 mirrors that came in a package for $20 at Target. A regular mirror that size costs like $80! I really like them. (And yes, I even used a level and a ruler to get them up there.)
I have so much more cute jewelry than I remembered!
I know you didn't see a good "before" of the closet... but this is where it all began. That clothes rod (and all those clothes plus about 100 more) were on the floor for about 3 months.
I didn't do much here, but I did clean out some glasses and move around some trays and cutting boards and things to make it more functional.
I didn't have a "before" of this either, but this is cuter. Plus, I hung that picture that my great Aunt painted. She also painted the pic in this room.
Hey! Remember THIS Christmas?? Some of these were the Nambe dishes my dad gave me that year. If you haven't read of heard the story, it may be worth a few minutes of your time.
OK... sorry that was long, but you asked for pics and you got 'em! I'm slowly, but surely, working on the kitchen and other things around the house. I'll keep posting as I go. Let me know what you think! :)
