The Crazy Suburban Mom: Okay, okay .... NOW you can see some progress...

Okay, okay .... NOW you can see some progress...

I posted here about the progress I made on my kid's room but after reading the comments and looking at the pictures again, like this one...

I realized it's hard for you to see progress, per se.

And I get that.

But I think I was making y'all nervous with my pictures and some of you wanted to come and organize me which, a few months ago I'd be standing on my head about but now...  It's so much better.  I just have to prove it.

It's all about perspective.   Thing is,  I was just so used to seeing the bomb-blast, you know? So to me that picture looked like the cover of House Beautiful.  And I mean that in the only best way possible and I hope House Beautiful knows that.

But today I took a break from the printer issues and the Norton Anti-Virus issues (that's a whole other story) and just worked on my kid's room because he's a really great kid.  I mean he's only eighteen and and is working as a full-time luthier and that was no easy thing for him.  He had to learn everything and I mean everything to get through school.  This is a kid who'd never used a saw before he started school, let alone a band saw and now he has a whopping - Tim, The Tool Man - Five foot tall rolling metal um, thing that doesn't even hold all the tools he uses ...

Um, that was a huge mom-digression there...  To continue.

So I've spent the whole day trying to work out the preliminary kinks in the room to get it ready for the secondary kinks.

And here is a better picture...

And I'm sure everyone will agree that that's actual progress
and it really does look like what I said, ten more feet of room in there.

002

I mean, it's kind of shocking


Oh, and those guitar hangy hooky things are all
purchased and set hang to along that long wall by the bed.

004

Now, as you can see this side of the room is still congested...

But not horrific anymore.   This is across from the bed.  But the bookshelves will go in favor of floating shelves so there will be room below them for the amp type things.

So as you can really see now there is progress and as soon as my power washing interior designer is free again he and my son can start on planning the closet and shelving.

Yes, you can see the progress and it does look more spacious. I need to do the same to my youngest son's bedroom soon.

A definite improvement. Once clutter is organized and/or removed...it is amazing at how much space one can find.
Now the next trick is keeping it like that~

It must feel like a different room now, I have 2 boys aged 2 and 4 who share a room but I couldn'y possibly post a photo of that room lol.

Looking good, Tracy! The Easter Bunny brought my oldest the hanger hook things for his guitars too, I'm sooooo tired of climbing over guitars and amps and cases (not to mention clothes and shoes and books etc).

I just wish the Easter Bunny had HUNG the hooks before he left. I hate finding studs and levelling things. I always wind up making many more holes than needed!

It looks really good though, way less crowded than over here at our house! :)
