An excellent way to declutter is to decide to paint the entire interior of your home. It has been a long month of painting after the husband got off work and on off days, but we are in the home stretch. This is the before picture of my office/son’s old room. It was the light yellow on top that the whole house is and Raiders silver on the bottom. There was a wallpaper banner across the dividing line with Oakland Raiders helmets in silver and black. When you are carting crates of stuff out of a room you really rethink what is going back in.
This is with it almost done with just some things needing to be put away or in, like my desk. hahaha The top color is Peach Glow which most of the house now is. The bottom is my accent color which is Flaming Torch – a burnt orange. It took 3 coats to cover the silver-gray. LOL A white chair rail is down the middle and circles the room. It feels very sophisticated. Wow! My pseudonym Jill has excellent taste! Wish she shared with me. LOL
This is the surprise picture the husband took of me in my new office. Now I finally feel it is mine. Got the zombie killing machete over the clock and my quilt from my best friend on my chair. Ready to go. I got rid of a bunch of stuff that was just cluttering the room and it feels open and freeing. Gone are all the things I brought back from conferences and vacations that just filled the room and didn’t add anything to it. Now, back to work because this is preorder week for my newest book. Happy writing!!
