A Princess Room - Finished!!!!

Last weekend, I began the arduous task of shoveling cleaning out the Princess's bedroom while she was out of town. It took me the FULL week, but at 11 p.m. Friday night, I finally completed it. Her room is very small, her closet teensy, and its very dark (the girl totally likes to sleep in on the weekends and a darkish room helps with that). The room presented several problems: too much stuff, not enough storage and not enough money to buy new storage stuff, so I had to go with what I had on hand.

I wish I had thought to take a "before" picture, when you couldn't even walk through it, but here are a couple of "during" (warning! these could cause nightmares!):

And 7 days, 4 garbage bags, 2 boxes of donations, and 6 boxes of stuff for us to sort through together, we have:

(I had to repair the seat cushion above, the ties had totally ripped off. My sewing skills are less than stellar, but fortunately you can't really see how bad the job is,and they are at least holding!)

(Yes that is a jillion times larger than life picture of Kellan Lutz from Twilight, at least its a PRETTY picture to have to look at all the time --- ha!)

So there you have it, a full week's worth of work. I'm just hoping she can keep it looking the way it does now. It won't be pretty if she can't!!!!!!!!


  1. You are a good mommy to do all of that for her!!

    Looks awesome!

  2. What a nice mom you are to do all that work! Hope she appreciates you and keeps it clean :)

  3. That's an amazing transformation! You did such a wonderful job. Hopefully she will keep it that way after all the hard work you did!

  4. That only took you 7 days? I think I need to borrow you for a few days to help me clean my dad's garage! I am sure Princess is happy. That's quite the transformation.
