two issues that need be addressed before the new babe's arrival...
1} my closet.
there are two reasons why this is a problem.
i have a ridiculously small space to work with and i have trouble getting rid of things.
this is how i justify that overflowing and embarrassing corner of our bedroom.
you see, my mom didn't keep any of her clothes from the 70's or 80's.
she says she wasn't stylish, but she's too beautiful not to be and fashions always have a way of coming back around (with the exception of t-shirt rings and Ed Hardy).
for this reason, i like to think that if i hold on to things, one day my daughter(s) will rummage through my closet to find an outfit they'll love just as much as i did.
all that being said, something's just gotta be done.
it's such an eye sore, it takes up too much space, and there will soon be a baby and a basinet added to the mix.
the second issue
i need a laundry nook
this is what it looks like now
clean laundry sits in baskets folded or un on the floor and the banister has become the drying rack. hmph.
i'd love to have a corner or space upstairs that looks something like this
does anyone else have this problem that may have come up with a simple (semi cheap) solution??
both of these have been hanging over my head for a while now... it's been easy to put them off. but, now that four of us will be sharing the upstairs... i need more order... for my sanity's sake.
