After 2 weeks, Emma's room transformation is almost complete. All of the main components are finished...we just want to build her a desk of some sort. Don't know when that will happen, but sometime before school starts. Her room is WAY less cluttered. We removed 2 large and one small piece of furniture that she didn't really need and was just a place to collect junk (I mean important stuff) I also want to have some type of comfy chair in the corner, for reading or visiting or whatever. Right now she just has a beach chair in there, which works for summer.
One thing that won't change- her 'E' wall. For years I have been collecting E's to hang in her room, and those are going back up. We just ran out of steam this weekend. They will add a nice punch of color to her room, and help tie all the colors together. Oh help me-I sound like an HGTV show!
She & I spent a few hours reworking her closet to accomodate all the various things she had shoved into the now defunct furniture. And getting rid of the vast amount of clothing that no longer fits. Amazing how much actually fits in there!
Cross your fingers for her sake (and mine) that she keeps it looking this way!
