An Embarrassing Room No More

I am very pleased to say that what was once one of two embarrassing rooms in my house is now not! Whoo!

I spent the entire first week of my holidays making the front spare room of our house go from this

To this

Look at all the space - and the floor. I haven't seen much of that floor in the last year!

It's now pretty and functional. I have set up my craft and sewing supplies in the cupboard, I've been working out every morning, and there is room in the cupboard for Dave's guitars and amps. We'll even be able to use it as a play room once baby is old enough!

And the pram in the corner, it was my dolls pram when I was a girl, and my Dad recently cleared out their garage and took it to the op shop. I was so devastated when I found out that he went back and salvaged it for me - from the dumpster! They had put my beloved pram in a dumpster?!! Sure, it needs a little TLC, but once I give it a clean up it will be good as new!

It feels so good to have this room all cleaned up. I am slowly making my way through the rest of my house, and the rest of my list of things to do before baby comes. It feels so good to be making my home cleaner and to be purging it of many unused and unwanted items. I am weirdly enjoying all this cleaning. I hope that feeling lasts, because the urge to clean doesn't come my way too often!

On a completely random note, happy 4th July to my American friends and visitors today!

  1. Wow! It looks great. I love what you did with the fabric shelves. I can never think of a good way to store mine but not forget what I have... Nice!
