You all have "been " to my house. Heck, you've seen closets and drawers, places no guest should ever be forced to look. My house is rather tidy most of the time. I work quite hard at keeping it that way too. Now here's a place that I keep hidden, or as the title says, my dirty little secret.
This room was once my sons bedroom, but it is tiny, and the layout was bad-so I moved him into my old office and took this room for myself. I repainted it, made new curtains (silk!) bought a new overhead lamp fixture that I LOVE- then dumped a ton of crap into it. I have cleaned it up- twice! (can anyone say AT cure) but within days it becomes a crap collector again.
Why? Well, my son can't get into this room. There is a special thing on the doorknob he can't open. SO, anything he shouldn't be in gets thrown in here. My art supplies are all in here, some fabric, my books, all of my blank canvas' are in here too. It gets to a point where I can hardly walk. I have seen some of those shows on tv where they come in and humiliate the owner and then clean up the house. This is that type of room. (thank God I only have one like this)
Anyway, this room depresses me, I can't stand it this way, but it just sucks the life right out of me and so I can't even begin to clean.
I just have to get to it, but I don't even know where to start. I just have so much junk in there, and most of it is really needed so I can't throw it away. I need to figure out how I want to use the space and then work on an organizational plan so that everything has a home. I just don't even want to start.
