I finally got around to really cleaning out the room that will eventually be a nursery. Since we’ve moved in it’s mostly been a storage area for my husband’s things. All of his signed sports memorabilia, guitars, amplifier, pedals, jerseys etc etc. I also had some of my things in there as well. I didn’t take any before or after pictures of that space but we hung alot of his things on the walls in our basement and what was left over either went in the basement or fit into the closet in that room. So there’s only like 2 plastic storage bins of clothes in that room now and some things we got for Luca.
On to the next two rooms (which I do have pictures of). They’re still in progress so I haven’t taken after photos but I wanted to show you where it was before I started. I’ve been building my scrapbook room desk and painting in there so all of my scrapbook room things have been piled up in the guest bedroom. Not only that but I also have all of my gift wrapping supplies in the guest room and some old clothes, purses, my veil from my wedding etc. etc. Basically tons of random stuff that I didn’t know what to do with so it got thrown in there. This is seriously embarrassing to show and my sister in laws who are clean freaks would divorce me if they lived here haha.
So, the silver storage rack was moved into my scrapbook room and all of my scrapbook room things have been moved into that room. I had my old Christmas ornaments and decor from the condo (and my old Christmas color scheme) in here so that all went to the basement. The doggy Santa costumes went to the basement with all of the other doggy costumes. I went through TONS of old memorabilia of mine (old wristbands from events, letters, etc) and threw alot of it away. I’m still working on it but imagine this room with the bed completely cleared and all of the floor space cleared off. The only things left in there are in the closet which I have yet to go through. Yayy!! I’ll probably post pictures of that soon.
Here are the most recent pictures I have taken of the scraproom. It’s actually much further along than these pictures depict but you haven’t seen this stage yet. Here it shows that I have all of the cabinets in place, the support structure built, and the desk top added. I just recently finished painting it but the top looks a little streaky. My friend Rochelle just told me about some self leveling paint that supposedly eliminates the roller marks so I may decide to repaint the desktop just to make it look a little cleaner on the top. For now I’m working on organizing my things in this space. I’ve already filled all of the drawers and set up my computer and printer. I’m trying to figure out how I want to place things. Ideally, most of the desktop will remain clear so I have as much work space as possible. I need to buy some shelves and the gold picture of my grandmother on the floor in my guest room is going to be hung on the wall somewhere in my scrapbook room. So anyway, still lots to do. I also need to buy a wireless router so I can get internet in there.
I will do some more organizing in here and then take pictures of where I’m at present day.
