This was by far one of my most satisfying jobs. Two organizers+ one home owner= success! We started out feeling like we were in cramped quarters, but by the time we were done we were all stretched out and relaxed as a few finishing touches went up. It’s amazing how much a change like this has an effect on one’s mood and mental state. The homeowner was speechless and smiling by the time we were thru, and her kids were exclaiming how amazing everything was and excited to play with things now that all the pieces were together. The fear in a situation like this is usually about getting rid of the kids’ things to make room. However, as you can see from the pictures there was really no way for the kids to truly access anything. Cleaning everything up made it possible for them to really play in this space.
So here we go. This was the play area which was a commons space between several upstairs bedrooms:
This is the loft area which is utilized as storage and also a arts and crafts area for the artist homeowner and her crafty daughter. These are technically befores, but I had already put out two bags of items from the floor before I remembered that I hadn’t taken any yet. (access to this room at consultation was restricted due to the situation in the play area)
And this is an almost after. A little more work needs to be done in this room at this point but it already felt so ahhhhhhmazing– had to get a pic!
Everyone loved it so much that since we were done ahead of schedule, the decision was made to bring order to the kids’ rooms and the downstairs living space as well! Very thankful to the homeowner and her family who were so lovely to work with. We felt right at home! And now, so do they 🙂
