So, since Christmas, it has been my mission to whip this house into shape. I began with the upstairs closets and little storage areas. Our house is 70 years old and has lots of little nooks and crannies that are great for storage.
I have cleaned out every one of the upstairs closets and thrown away or given away the things I have pulled out. Now they are all nice and neat and organized and I know what is in them!!
Here is my upstairs hallway last Friday morning:
The small door to the left is attic storage that runs the width of the front of the house and is great storage but the ceiling slopes, so you can't stand up in there. This area will house a lot of toys and is a place where the little ones can play.
The mattress and box springs were in the larger bedroom and I gave them away. I replaced all the furniture in that room with my mother in law's bedroom furniture, which just happens to be the furinture my husband always used when he was growing up!!
It is now in this bedroom, which is about to get new paint!!
More later about this and some other projects!!
