AFTER cleaning...

So here are the glamorous or not so glamorous pictures
of Lauren and Brooke's room...
Please excuse the messy shelves outside of their door,
they are a project for another day!
I hope you enjoy!!

Uummm....can you come to my house now and do that??? Just asking;o) Good job on the cleaning! I love how you have everything seperated in different bins like that and also how you have the closet!

Jennifer said...

thank you very much. this is the only way I seem to clean an entire room at one time, is by moving it all around. I'd love to come do a room in your house, although i bet it isn't as bad as my house. :)
thanks for the comment.

Em said...

Yes, please come over tomorrow. I need help.

I'm going to be doing that soon to both my kid's rooms, as soon as Sophia's bed gets done. I'll have to post pictures of it too. Nice work!

Annie said...

I have an entire basement that is in desperate need of love like that.

It was 74 down here today...I'll bake you cookies! Come down!!

:-D

Look at those cool organized bins! I love it. I also love that you asked us to excuse the mess . . .I feel like I'm really there!!!

I now have the organization bug . . .

Good grief woman! Wanna come over ;) I've got a brand new Swiffer!

It looks wonderful in there. You can actually see the floor (unlike my house)...Now the trick is to not let any of the kids touch ANYTHING so it stays that way for more than 10 seconds :)

Good job on the cleaning, how long it will last like that? Not more than 30 minutes i guess :)

Em ~ the sad thing is that I would love to come over to clean. I'm a strange girl that way... although my house isn't in the best condition it could or should be, I love to help others clean, organize and declutter. I have thought of doing this for a living but not sure where to start. :)

Allie Bear ~ I cannot wait to see the pics of the bed once you sand and repaint it... I'm sure it will come out perfect!! You should also take pics of your daughters room as you go along setting it up. :)

Annie ~ I'm on my way! 74 AND cookies! hot damn... I am loading up and heading out!! I'll be there shortly! :)

Laskigal ~ Those bins are the GREATEST thing ever... total life saver! The kids can get to their stuff easy and then it is an easy clean up too! I used to try to keep them really organized and sort the toys every 20 mins.. but I have come back down to earth and realize that as long as they are picked up that is all that matters! :) You can post some pics of your organizing quest! ;)

Sandy ~ sad to say, but I follow the girls around and put away what they aren't playing with at that very moment, for the first few days after I do something like this... then I chill out a little bit and only clean up a few times a day, otherwise it would only last 10 secs... maybe! Toys are pretty easy to clean when they are this age. Trevor's room is a little bit harder, he has so many little things and things that have to go together and all that... I did his room one day too, I should post the pics from that. I think I will. Ohhhhhh... a brand new Swiffer... I actually LOVE those things! :)


Ecky ~ thanks! Yeah... it is already not looking just like that any more, but like I commented to Sandy, I constantly pick up after them... plus they are pretty good at helping me clean up... they are at the age where they want to do what you are doing... so they start to clean up as soon as I put a few things away! :) 30 minutes and they could tear through and entire HOUSE, or maybe an entire neighborhood! :) lol

Thank you everyone for commenting! :) I love to see what you have to say about my posts! :) Have a GREAT day!
hugs,jenn

I like the room switched around like that!! It looks very spacious

HRH said...

That looks really great. You got a lot of stuff in there without it feeling closed in. I bet they love it.

~ Hi. Glad you stopped by. Come on in, kick off your shoes, put your feet up relax, grab a drink and stay a while. ~
