We shouldn’t have gone back around the block to have a closer look, but we did. There was a gorgeous dresser in someone’s front yard with a free sign on it. I jumped out of the car and inspected. Solid wood, dovetail drawers, and no major damage – perfect color for our bedroom – thumbs up! It barely fit in the back of Brad’s Jeep – it was hanging out the back for the drive home. Luckily, we were close.
Yes, during our year long home organization project – of getting rid of items and declutter or move – we now have this. My new to me dresser did force me to clean out my old one. And, don’t worry – there’s a trade happening – something is going out of the house but we’re not sure what.
My dresser, in our bedroom, houses all of my un-mentionables, socks/tights, and pajamas. There are no pictures of any of these because, really? Go Gingham isn’t a site where laundry gets aired – dirty or clean! You know what those items look like. Unlike those ratty-tatty pillow cases I mended awhile back, nothing that’s going can be mended – or should be.
After sorting through all of the contents, I ended up with a large bag to part with.
Brad and I were talking about moving the framed photographs on the wall, since the new mirror is bigger. Our daughter, 15-years-old and much smarter than us, told us not to move the pictures. Her reason? “You’ll end up with so many nail holes in the wall and nobody wants to patch those.” Brilliant. She’s right. Can you tell she learned how to patch nail holes recently?
Another week – 34 weeks to be exact – done. Next week we’re working on the dreaded basement tool room. Somehow we keep putting it off…Thankfully the end of our year long project is in sight.
Truth in blogging: Our bedroom is rarely this neat and tidy. We made the bed and put all of the laundry away that was piled on the rocker before I took the pictures.
Clean laundry or dirty laundry piled up in your room? What do you call your un-mentionables?
