You’d think the day before school starts, I would be out, doing something crazy-fun with the kiddos, relishing every last moment of summer…
The way I cope with things that are stressful/not so pleasant, is to take on some too large project for the free time allotted in my life.
That is why this year, the day before school started, I was re-organizing Lynn’s room.
I took EVERYTHING off the walls, patched and touched-up the paint.
(I wasn’t crazy enough to paint it a new color like I really wanted to.)
The neutral color needed to be matched, Home Depot was awesome at that.
(But it is boring, and I REALLY wanted to paint it a pale pink.)
Lynn was so excited for her room make-over, but a little disappointed there would be no pink going on her walls.
(Yet. I am not crazy.. I WILL do it LATER..)
It was pretty much decided in my head that we would be getting her these shelves from IKEA. Just like mine in the craft room. I love them so much! And they have dropped in price. :)
We already had the bins. It is nice that this stuff is all off the floor.
This just got re arranged a little.
Some things in her room are old, some are new, some are just re-arranged. Her room is organized better and she has more space!
So even in my craziness, I think it is a great way to start off a new year of school.
