Real Organizing Projects: A Family Room Cleanup

This week’s “real organizing” situation is family room in a lovely home. This room became the “catch all” space for this family.

 

Before:

As items were dropped there they began to pile up and pile up and thus began a vicious cycle.  The white space on the wall is a very practical Murphy-bed…and company was coming, so this space needed to be cleared out quickly.

After:

With two people, some strong decision making, using a nearby storage space more efficiently, and setting aside lots of items for donation, this room is ready for company.  The murphy bed is accessible and can be pulled down easily.  The bathroom at the far right is cleaned and fresh towels are set.  For sure the guests will enjoy this space and be very comfortable during their visit.
