It only took me a year to get this room in order.
That’s not entirely true. It took me like three days once we moved the bookshelf into the room. Finally, I had a place to put things other than the floor. Once I got rollin, I filled up a huge garbage bag with trash, organized things, and finished cleaning up the room. By the way, we found this shelf for free at the transfer station! Kind of like this and this… good things come from the dump :)
The Easiest Part: Putting containers on the new bookshelf that were already appropriately-sized.
The Hardest Part: Dealing with piles of “important” paperwork that are worth keeping around, but which have no real place to file them.
The Most Fun Part: Hanging a long branch over the off-centered window and creating scrapbook paper bunting to balance the space. Since the window’s frosted, I enjoyed making an alternate window treatment without using cloth :)
