My Personal 30 Day Master Bedroom Organizational Challenge

First and Final Update



The before pictures are from last year. The only difference between then and right before I started my project was the cradle, which we removed at the end of 2006. There wasn't a drastic change as this is the last room of our house that will be completely demolished and renovated. Therefore, not too much money was spent on anything fancy.

The purpose of this project was to organize the Master Bedroom to prepare for our new arrival. Towards the end of June or early July I will start loading in some baby supplies and I wanted an organized room to start with so that it will be easy to maintain while I'll be transitioning from taking care of 1 little one to 2 little ones.
