I did it! I actually completed my first room for the Feb Clutter Bust.
The nursery is ready to sleep in! That is, as soon as we get the cot put up in his room. (Just because the room is ready, doesn't mean I'm ready)
So as you know from my last post, The room was quite a mess when I started. It turned into the junk room and, well it wasn't really ready for a bubby thats for sure!
But I have done it.
After completing my first goals, the last goals were easiest.
1. Arrange furniture
And I did it! I haven't put the circus tent up over his Cot yet, as we want to put the cot in first, and find a way to secure it to the roof.
So here it is, the final picture!
I am so proud of the final product. This is the first time E has had a proper room and I really am looking forward to putting him in it. I just have to do it...
...Maybe next weekend!
So my final tips for the last steps of cleaning, which I think are the worst steps.
1. Keep going, when you can see the end is near, don't give up! Push on, the final product is worth it.
2. Write yourself a list of how you can keep the room like it is. For me I will be folding and putting clothes away instantly, Using the clothes basket next to the change table and no longer putting things in here to hide mess from other areas of the house.
3. Take pictures, so if it does start to get messy again, you can look back at the room and see how great it looks when its clean. Its the perfect motivation.
This is my before and after!
I'm so proud of my end results, that I cant wait to get into the spare room and de clutter tomorrow!
How is your de-cluttering going?
