So......I had a $40 budget on this room in our house. First order of business was to collect all the dressers and hanging rods that weren't being used and put them in my office/schoolroom (my perfect work area). Then after a trip to Wallyworld, I came home with a laundry sorting unit, a few white tubs and some brown paint on sale because someone returned it.
My grand total: $36.50
I rewarded myself with a Candy Bar and a Soda. ;)
The room of choice: Phil's makeshift gun room. It is a catch all room that I can't stand!!
Yes, that is a leg lamp. A gift to my dear hubby from my dear mother!!
Next order of business...the muscles.
My little sister, Katy Kay!!
Nothing is off limits when you have paint!!
Paint makes everything beautiful.
I really should have taken a picture of the Star Wars mural on the wall. Was here when we moved in and now it is covered up with a beautiful chocolate paint!
All kids clothing, shoes and accessories...along with all of mine are in this room.
It cuts down on collecting dirty laundry, picking up clothing after the little ones and their friends decide to play dress up, folding and putting away in 5 different bedrooms, packing for trips and most importantly:
I set out clothing for the next day the night before, so I am able to do it all in one location...along with iron what needs to be ironed.
It is all in ONE PLACE!!
And EVERYTHING is labeled!!
This room also serves as Phil's gun room. Which means the door remains locked and little ones cannot go in and destroy my masterpiece!!
I ordered a bunch of our hunting photos to put on the cork board there and tried to keep everything looking on the masculine side so that Phil could enjoy being down there still.
The ugly blue tubs are now gone and there is a matching bench to the table in place so that Phil can work, but I took these photos before I finished that job!! ;)
We always have someone staying with us it seems, many times they are men...and most of them hunt, so we thought this would be appropriate. We have my daughter's large bedroom that is also used for other sleepover guests (not of the hunting world). ;)
Mid-finish of my job, I ran out of tape for my label maker...it was quite devastating...until my dear husband showed up with HIS bigger and better label maker!!
JOB FINISHED!! I am a happy woman!!
