Operation Rainbow Room {Reveal}

After what feels like forever, I'm finally calling it quits in Story's room. I've done all I can to improve it.  I didn't want to do a whole lot to it. Mainly I wanted to buy pieces that would transition to the next house. It will be an exciting day when I can make purchases secured in the knowledge that we will not be moving again. What I wanted to accomplish was a place for everything to go. I don't know about your kids, but mine is a hoarder. She doesn't even like to get rid of trash. I wanted to purge a lot and then have proper places for it all to go. Before she would just kind of shove everything into the closet (wonder where she picked up that trait...) Here is a nice and messy before shot for you.

These were actually taken after I started sorting. The real before was even worse. Just so much junk everywhere. She does have a lot of nice things and was having trouble finding any of it.

Such a difference. What really made the space happen were the ClosetMaid systems. I looked into a few from Ikea but found these at Target to be more in our price range. Not to mention about a mile away.

As you can see, there are spaces for everything. Now, when she cleans her room she knows what bin to put certain thing in.

We had a lot of fun starting her gallery wall. I've had most of these frames for a few years now. I've been collecting them since she was born. There is space off to the left of the light to add more :)

I had a lot of fun working on this room. But I am glad to see it done, finally.

  1. This looks so fabulous. I love the rainbow stripes on the wall. Everything looks so neat and organized. I can relate to the clothes and dress up clothes spilling out everywhere. My daughter's room looks pretty similar right now. Great work on the design. Jodi @
