February Challenge - Gameroom

Linking up to OrgJunkie's February Challenge.

This is what used to be our beautifully decorated and organized playroom.. about two years ago. It is now the junkroom of epic proportions, as everything that was decluttered from elsewhere upstairs got stuck in this room. There's no seating that's usable except for my limber children. Just mostly junk. And animal cages.

This is the one wall that has been painted, and furniture we got on clearance at The Container Store last year. Note: This is the ONLY slightly finished part of this room, and the only functional part at all.

And it's still surrounded by junk and trash.

Here's more junk:

That's the ferret cage that doesn't really fit in the corner it's squeezed into. And we are not the best ferret parents. We will be giving them up for adoption soon *sniffle*. They need room to roam that we can't do very well with our girls' needs and well, this room of JUNK. Middle is the rat cage, we are keeping the rats as they are my son's and he takes fair care of them.

And a final view:

Yep, more junk. There is seriously a LOT of crap in this room to deal with - but the room is so large that the scale of the "mess" may seem small to you viewing it on your monitor. For reference, that is a 9x13' rug pictured in front of the window. The room itself is about 20x25. It is HUGE. So what looks like a little mess in here, would fill my youngest's 11x13 room completely.

So this is Step One - BEFORE.


  1. What a wonderful space you will have when you're done. Best of Luck!

  2. love the amount of room and blank canvas you got. Looking forward to seeing the end results.

  3. It looks like you have a lot of space to work with, cannot wait to see the end result. Good Luck

  4. Can't wait to see what you make of this great room!
