Spare Room Extravaganza!

I tackled this spare room in a client's home not too long ago. Although she had a dream for the space, she was completely overwhelmed whenever she entered the room. Instead of conquering the mess, she would turn around, shut the door, and pretend the room did not exist. Over time, it became a catch-all space for random items belonging to everyone in her family.  


What my client TRULY desired was a calm, organized space where she could shut the door, turn on the radio, and work on her many crafting projects.

After several hours of sorting, purging, de-cluttering, and putting back in the space only what my client wanted, this is what we ended up with:


Pretty major difference, right?  My client was SO excited and felt SO accomplished. What an empowering feeling to finally take back your space and use it how you want!!  

How about a few side-by-side comparisons, shall we?




Looking at these pictures, (well really only the "afters"), makes me giddy!
