time to tackle the playroom

when we bought the house the previous owners used this room as a dining room…painted a dark plum color…very dark with only one window….this is a picture i took during our walk through.

after we moved in we moved the chandelier to a bigger room off the living room….gave this room a coat of white paint and then proceeded to pack it full with as many toys as we could in the last 5 years.

now its out of control and i avoid this room as much as possible…..and i think its even too much for the kids… 5 minutes after i took these pictures I started to clean it out.

now the room is a disaster…you know the point of no return, where it has to get worse in order to get better….and this room has now exploded to every adjoining room in order to make any sense of it all.

and why is it when you want to weed out the baby toys….the toys that have an inch of dust on them….NOW the kids can’t live with out?!?

off to the hardware store to look at paint for the 2nd time….at first i get excited and then after 78 shades of tan i go bonkers!


to be continued…..
