One room

I had two days to work, and I sure as heck did. But all that time, and I really only got one room done! It was my office, though, and it was SO overpiled and trashed. So I feel good that it's done and I hope I can keep better track of my filing and organizing so that 2-years-behind thing never happens again.

Some pics... if you've been around long, you know I am a fan of the before-and-after pics.

Here's what it looked like when I started. I'm so shocked that I'm even posting's horrendous! BTW...these were taken on my phone, M and Braska had taken off with the camera by the time I remembered I needed a "before." They're not the best quality pics.

And at it's current stage... no, my walls aren't peach, but the light in there makes things look yellowish.
There is still plenty to do, things from the other two rooms that used to be the office pre-kid that need to be moved in here. Final filing order, and of course, taxes! But at least now I can get in there and actually utilize the work space. And if you come to visit, you'll have a bed to sleep in.

For the record, I did get a few other things done. I finished the office at about 1:30p on Sunday, then worked on my living room, the kitchen, and minimally on our bedroom before I had to dash to the store before the Super Bowl party at 3:45p. There's at least another weekend's worth of work to do, but for now, I'll just try to keep up with the daily stuff.

Little factoid....when the office was done, I had almost 2 complete 30-gal bags of trash, mostly paper. Amazing!


  1. All I can say is "WOW"!

  2. It looks like you made good progress. Looks great.

  3. Fantastic improvement! Thanks for the before and after. And if you sell the paper to recycling place (?) you could eat out at El Toro!

  4. And did you recycle the paper or just throw it out?

  5. Karen--Thanks...I should have shown you in person Sunday night.

    Grandma least there's a place to walk in and the desk can be used.

    Dad--I do love the before and after.

    Anon--Most of this stuff is medically sensitive patient info, so we burn it in our fireplace as starter.

  6. Dude, you weren't kidding. Good job! How 'bout coming over and tackling my house?

  7. WOW! I'm proud of you! You give me incentive :o)
