Z's room - almost empty!

One of my huge projects last week was to prepare for Z's bed delivery. We had been using her room as storage, unpacking boxes and leaving the contents all over the floor to be used as needed. Obviously that wasn't going to work on a long term basis!

It's rather embarrassing, but I decided to share pictures of what the bedroom looked like before I started cleaning.

a mess

another mess

yet another mess

I got rid of a lot of the stuff, thinking if we haven't used it in over a year, we probably don't need it. A friend is moving tomorrow and needed some packing boxes so I gave her the extra boxes we had stored in the closet. We purchased a bookshelf at Target, set it up in our bedroom, and filled all three shelves. The remainder of the stuff was stacked into our closet.

shiny floors!

empty closet!

open space!

On Friday, Z's bed was delivered. We ordered a beautiful bunk bed and I'm hoping to set it up tomorrow.

I can't wait to decorate my daughter's room! I can't wait for her to come home!!

Wonderful! I have a number of boxes that were moved from our former digs and have not been opened. I think that is great criteria for tossing stuff.
What fun to see the plans moving along.

It's fun to see how things are progressing for your daughter's arrival. What an exciting time for you and your husband!
