February & March

The Master Bedroom

Since this is such an important room, and such a disaster of a room, I decided to give myself two months to work on it.

FEBRUARY

  • Week 1
    • Gather up all miscellaneous junk from around the room, box it up, and take it into the bonus room. This means anything that isn’t clothing or furniture!!
    • Mr. T’s Project: Gather up all clothing and move it into the guest bedroom.
  • Week 2
    • Sort through all the junk that was carried upstairs.
      • back into bedroom? put it back in a box
      • belongs elsewhere in the house? set it aside for now
      • goes in the trash? throw it away immediately
      • not sure what to do with it? put it in an outbox and ignore it for now
    • Mr. T’s Project: Quick and Dirty Sort – Keep, Donate, Toss
  • Week 3
    • The misc items that belonged somewhere other than the bedroom? Put them where they belong.
    • Mr. T’s Project: Wash and fold all the “keep” clothes, put them away in some semblance of an organized manner.
  • Week 4
    • Rotate mattress.
    • Wash all the sheets in the house, match up sheet sets, determine if there are any that need to be donated/trashed/re-purposed in some way.
    • Mr. T’s Project: Bag up and donate all the “donate” clothes.

MARCH

  • Week 1
    • Possibly make a headboard?
    • Possibly make a pseudo-canopy?
    • Mr. T’s Project: Convert two end tables into nightstands.
  • Week 2
    • Organize new nightstands.
    • Mr. T’s Project: Make sure Sarah’s craft desk is sanded and stained.
  • Week 3
    • The misc items that belonged back in the bedroom? Put them where they belong.
    • Organize craft desk that should be in the bedroom by now.
    • Mr. T’s Project: Finish any construction that he wanted to do to the bed.
    • Mr. T’s Project: Wall art above craft desk?
  • Week 4
    • Go through the misc items outbox and make final decisions.
    • Small craft projects: finish owl birthday/anniversary reminder thing, and create some sort of calendar.
    • Mr. T’s Project: Finish any construction that he wanted to do to the bed.

I can’t wait to have a clean and organized bedroom!
