The other thread was getting long! I can't keep up with the monthly room challenges (they always end up bimonthly and trimonthly!) but I'm getting stuff accomplished incrementally.

I'll start with the master bath, which is so tiny that I had to stand on various objects to get pictures!

And DD's room:

OK, your turn! Post some inspiration for me, please!

This is our main floor. The top and bottom ones still need some work.

It's clean and decluttered, but we could use some new (uh, matching) furniture.

Your house always makes me drool! :

I love it all, but especially your daughters room. Her bed is so lovely. And your remodeling of the upstairs is phenomenal!

I really enjoy seeing other peoples organized spaces, I will try and take some pics tomorrow of a few areas in my home.

Somehow I brainwashed DH into making it and I painted it. I've since painted the inside white because the colors are so crazy

I love everyone else's home too. awesome job, mamas!

I was guessing someone had made it, it's really cool. I may have to see if my DH can figure something like that out.

THAT IS IT.

I am shutting my Macbook and decluttering my house right now. You all have inspired me to clean my house.

I vow to come back here in one week with pictures.

Can't wait to see your pics, honeydee!

OP and others, love your houses! Everything looks great! Instead of relaxing during DS's nap, I'm off to declutter the linen closet. Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!!

I absolutely adore your home!

Its an Art Deco style home right?

We have homes like that in the preserved historical area in Fort Worth. Its exactly the kind of house we've been searching for! Historical homes such as an Art Deco can be a bit pricey tho.
