What Inspired Me

I have been trying to get the house organized and cleaned up. Every morning, I get up, drink a post of coffee and try to get inspired. Everywhere I look though there is another pile of stuff to be sorted and put away. It starts when I get up.

We changed rooms around a bit. We had the "master" bedroom, the largest bedroom in the house. Since we really don't spend alot of time in our room, we moved the two girls into it. We moved the boy into the girls old room so all the kids were upstairs. Our new room is the boys old room.

I never finished it though. I didn't move all the stuff from the closets to the right rooms. Needless to say, the room just got out of control. Clothes that should of been hanging in the closet were just on top of whatever furniture was available. The bed didn't get put back together since we weren't sure where in the room we wanted to put it. Nothing was set up right. We woke up to climbing over each other to get out of bed and walking over clothes and stuff.

Blah! I kept dreaming of how the room could look. The bed put back together.


Lots of pillows to sit in bed and read if you want to.


Even the bedskirt to hide junk that is stashed under the bed.


I want my curtains that I made to match the bedskirt back up. I love that the valance mimics the box pleats on the skirt.


I want room to put my bench back in here. Not at the foot of the bed, it wouldn't fit. Maybe under a window. Just another place to curl up on and think.


Maybe even think up a spot to put the plates that Jeff got me when we were first married.


The only "kids" in here among all the white is the kids pictures. No messy hands! Just peace and quiet.


The closets clean and organized. Everything hanging where it should be.


Not alot of furniture either. I could put all my stuff in the closet and a small dresser for Jeff's stuff that could also double as a nightstand.


A small table for the other side.


Not alot of stuff on the top of them either. Just little knicknacks that remind me of dear friends.


You know, just the essentials.


Some plants around the room too. Maybe even an orchid....


Just a little bit of contrasting color to break up some of the whites and neutrals.


Now that would get me motivated to do more each day. Just to have one place in the house that is organized, clean and almost complete. Just a few little tweaks are needed.

Hmmmm....

The room looks fabulous. I am wanting a different look in my room but am feeling quite unmotivated right now. I gotta get it together.

a whole post of coffee? how much java do you require, missy?? ;) We did the very same thing with our room...the girls now reside in it. The boy, well, he shares with the moose, I'm not switching with him ever. Love the room, though. Makes me yearn for my big girl bed...
