The Junk Room is NO MORE!

Sunday, March 27, 2011

It's true. I can't believe it, but I decided to tackle the scary room whose door remains closed 99.8% of the time. The room where all things go to die. The room that must not be named...

Until now, we didn't mention the junk room unless it was absolutely necessary, but now I can talk about it without feeling the big ball of stress that usually comes along with it.

New to the blog? Don't know what I'm talking about? Well, let me fill you in with this very pretty image:

As I've mentioned before, I'm usually an over-the-top, obsessive compulsive, clean FREAK...with one exception. Until today, the junk room was my exception, but with a little help from The Black Keys (looooove their newest album) and some determination,  I took it from the disaster above to the image below in about 2 hours:

A little bare and boring...but I'll take it. Oh, and in case you didn't know, this room will eventually be my craft room! I'm tired of making messes for everything crafty that I like to do, so I figured I might as well try this whole craft room thing out now since we have an extra bedroom to spare. :)


Where did all of the ahem, crap that was originally in there go? Well, it was either thrown away or boxed and bagged up for our garage sale that we'll be having in 2 weeks (I think)!

Speaking of the garage, that has been an..."issue" as well. When you're the kind of couple who has a different DIY construction project going on every week, the garage tends to see the worst of the mess. So, in the middle of my crazy-girl-cleaning-frenzy, I also decided that we needed to organize and clean the garage if we wanted to have a garage sale. So, we did--but that's for another post!

Happy Monday! Go clean something, it will make you feel better!!


  1. Way to go! I look forward to seeing your "new" craft room ... lucky gal! *Becca*

  2. Great job! I know that had to be a ton of work!

  3. We have a junk room too. It was my 5 year old's room until she moved in to the other room with her little sis. I hate looking in there. It gives me hives. :s I did some Spring Cleaning in their room over the weekend, and it feels so much better. Your room looks amazing!!! I'd love to have a craft room...maybe if I clean my junk room out. ;) Visiting from Centsational Girl. :)

  4. It feels so good to make a room actually usable. We recently cleaned out our spare. It had gotten so ridiculous you could barely see the floor!

    Btw found your blog on Two Become One. I live in Lubbock too:)

  5. Impressive! I can't believe you did it so quickly. It will be fun to have a craft room...

  6. Thank you so much everyone! It was definitely a burden that has been lifted off my shoulders. Hopefully I can get around to making it into a craft room in the near future :).

  7. The scary room is finally gone! It’s such a waste to have this space filled with junk and clutter, when it can function as a perfect place for your craft room. You did a great job transforming it! How is it now?
