I’m about to get really real with you all.
One of the rooms in my house is a complete disaster and it’s driving me nuts. This room was formerly the master bedroom and currently a play space, storage space, craft space, and catchall for clutter. A few months ago, I organized my crafting supplies in the closet. At the time I knew this would only be a temporary fix. As I do more projects now for the blog, I need to be able to access my supplies (and clean them up!) in a more efficient way. I’m usually crafting on borrowed time and don’t want to spend 15 minutes digging for my glue gun or tape or that fabric I just knew I saved. (By the way, why do they always wake up from their naps when you are SO close to being finished with something?)
Moving on, there are other issues in the room that need help. There is a huge, white wall that I cannot paint but must do something with. There is that mirror that I’ve been meaning to move for, like, a year. There is the drab plastic folding table that is my crafting table. (The list goes on and on in my head.)
I also want this to be a dedicated play space with proper storage for all of the toys. We have other play areas in the living room and kitchen, but this will be the main room. With that in mind, I want the space to be bright, clean and inviting for my little darlings to play in.
So what am I doing to do about it? First, I took a bunch of “Before” snaps for your viewing pleasure. (Below them is my challenge!)
Here’s the BEFORE:
The Challenge: Make this space into a functional, organized, safe, fun room for crafting and playing. I have one month (till March 15) and $100.
Your advice, comments, and support are all appreciated!
