Finished!

The Evil Twin worked his butt off and was able to get all the painting completed, and the closet organization system installed - and he finished it up on Saturday evening.

We had to sleep in our guest bedroom because by the time he finished the closet, it was kind of late and the entire contents of Sissy's bedroom were all shoved into ours and all over the bed, etc.

I spent Sunday sorting and organizing the mess that was Sorting Central (our bedroom) because I wanted to try to cut down on some of the clutter. But, when I emptied her dresser, I was a bit flummoxed. It had shorts and short sleeved tops in there. Stuff I know won't fit her next season, but what if we have an upturn in temps for a bit and we can enjoy some shorts weather a bit longer?

I ended up putting it all in her new drawers of her closet system anyway. I can sort it out later. I was able to pitch lots of old, too small socks and filthy bibs, etc.

Here is the right side of the closet:



And, the left side:



This was ordered through EasyClosets. I did most of the design myself, but I called for help and the designer gave me a few tips, added a bit of stuff and saved me over $100 in the long run. The shipping is FREE and all 10 boxes were packed in such an expert manner - everything was in perfect shape and accounted for. We really couldn't be happier with the system and I plan on writing a letter of recommendation for the company - plus? It's under warranty for as long as we own the home!

I wanted to get some pics of it earlier, but I had already started putting things in before I thought about the camera.

Here is the kitchen/dining room, etc. finished (or actually, half finished - it got one more coat of paint after this):



It seems so much lighter, brighter and bigger now! We just love it. I'll do some video this evening for tomorrow's post. That way, y'all can hear me talk again. LOL. I sound like SUCH a dork!

So, I'll have a video and a picture up for you hooligans tomorrow. I hope you've enjoyed our sweat and tears to finish this project. I'm sure something else will pop up soon! We can't be off our toes for too long!

  5. Those closet organizing systems are so cool. It's amazing how much space you really have when you maximize it's use. I would love to do something like that, but I live in an apartment.

  12. That is one awesome closet. And I mistaken or is Sissy the little girl who got the colorful daisy bedspread? If she is, then I'm really jealous. Daisies and an organized closet. Everything a girl could want! All she needs is a stuffed Winnie-the-Pooh and she's all set.

  13. I looked at the website. Anything that can make the Princess more organized is worth twice the price. Thanks for the link!
