You know how when you have an extra room in your house, it tends to just collect... everything? Our extra bedroom was the definition of a crap room. As I mentioned on Friday, we have been using the extra bedroom as almost a walk-in closet. It had all of our suitcases, an extra dresser and armoire, my grandma's vanity, and some extra furniture we hadn't gotten a chance to get rid of.
When we found out I was pregnant, we knew that room would be the nursery, so we started staging the room knowing it was getting a major overhaul. We started piling up things to get rid of and collecting baby stuff in there.
It was bad. I'll just show you.
Saturday it was time to bite the bullet and clean it out.
Now, we could have done it over the course of a couple of days... taken our time... relaxed a bit.
But that's not how I roll. Call it nesting or the fact that we don't really have Sundays until April, but I needed it to be done and I needed it to be done right away.
It took about 6 hours of constant work, with very few breaks. But it looks AMAZING!
My dad made the cradle for me when I was a baby. So now we will use it for our babies. It will go in our bedroom and he'll really only be able to be in it for a few months. The little table will go next to the glider when we move that up there.
In case you were wondering, we got rid of 11 bags of stuff.
7 bags of clothes
1 bag of books and VHS
Some picture frames
1 old TV
1 old DVD player to Goodwill
3 bags of garbage
And the other miraculous thing... the rest of the house is clean too. Phil made sure the garage is organized, the office is still clean, the living room is picked up.
I think nesting is kicking in.
PS - I could barely move the rest of the day Saturday and Sunday.
