Sneak Preview: Remember the Bedroom?

A few months ago, we started a little project I like to call 
Clearing the Landfill.
During the remodel that followed the fire, I got used to saying, 
"Just take that up to our room" when something was in the way.
Before we knew it, our room was officially storage, and we had anything but 
a restful, romantic retreat.
I couldn't find shoes.
Some days, we couldn't find the bed.
We painted cast off things to coordinate.
 We found perfect accessories to soften things.
 We wondered aloud...what to do with THIS.
 We put together new storage...
 ...and sorted through things that didn't fit our lives or us.
 There was a lot of hot gluing.
An awful lot of painting.
 Serious rehabbing.
Did all of this pay off?
Man, I really hope so.
Is the most pathetic Before pic ever or WHAT?
Monday, let's see where we got with this, shall we?
Either that, or someone come dig me out of the rubble.

Our whole house looks like that right now. It's amazing how much crap gets stored in a kitchen!

Tell you what, lass, we moved house in October, and we don't even HAVE a bed anymore >.< Damn frame wouldn't go up the narrow staircase (and even sawing it down to basics didn't do any good) so for now we are just crashing on the mattresses. Big downer for me as my bedroom always used to be my oasis. Can't wait to see how you restored normality, but I know it'll look amazing.
