No worries, we're all fine - just moving! After flirting with the idea for a few weeks, our real estate agent showed us a house we totally fell in love with so we have raced to ready our home for sale. We've painted nearly every room in the house, installed new trim, renovated both bathrooms and cleaned out seven years worth of clutter from every nook and cranny (but the attic that is, I'm hoping no one dares to look up there).
Does everyone love a good before and after photo or should I avoid becoming a decorating blog? Perhaps I'll just share Claire's room today - mind you it never looks THIS good.
The Before (the day we found our current home)
And here is Claire's room today. We keep a metal bucket of crayons and art supplies on that hook over her table and there were some cute hanging birds over the easel that I need to put back up.
I dislike hanging clothes nearly as much as folding socks so all of Claire's clothes (even dresses) are folded up in the dresser freeing up the closet for a little reading nook.
Claire wants her stripes to come with her to the new house, and this time I'll be sure to use a level when painting them. Hopefully they're not too wonky for the next people!
