Oh My....

Do you have a room in your home that you would be embarrassed to show anyone? We did, and it was bad. For us it was our office. It's normally pretty put together but it started to take a turn for the worse around the end of November and things just got worse from there.

So I'll give you a look into our mess. Walking into the office you would be greeted by this...




A closer look of all the random stuff on my desk...


I could only get this drawer about a quarter of the way open because it would run into the little table sitting next to it. Not sure why I lived with it that way for so long. Oh, and I really am going to refinish the drawers someday...

Binders falling over...random receipts on the shelf...paint brushes laying around...



All it took was 3 hours of my time, a few hours of David's time and a little rearranging....




Ahhh...so much better!

It turned out great! I have had plenty of rooms that look like that. : ) I am worried that our den turned play room turned just a room now is going to end up looking like that fairly soon.

I have a room just like that! In fact, I'm sitting in it right now... looking around at the chaos!
Thanks for the inspiration to clean and organize it!

Your room turned out great.

Ha!!!! We just posted about the same thing. But your organization post is much more impressive. Kudos to you both! I LOVE the little "laundry line" of cards and photos. : )
Take care,

You did well. The room looks fantastic!

I have closets like that. I can't decide if I want to donate stuff or have a garage sale. I think a garage sale is too much trouble, but I'd like some spending money. hmmmm....

My office/4th bedroom looks like that every so often. I just cleaned mine up and brought all of my junk to my old trailer...hehe

It looks great! I would get overwhelmed looking at everything that needed to be done.

Katie said...

Oh gosh, girl. I definitely have a room in my house that looks like the before pictures. Hopefully I can get it organized too!

Isn't it great when we find a place for everything! I always say I'm not going back to "finding" things again! :)
