As I am writing this it is Saturday night and it’s about as quiet as it has been for the last week. Tom is at a music gig, Merle is building Lego while watching Youtube tutorials and Roo is trying to get her room clean (I know, I know, it has been a ridiculously long time she has worked on it but I refuse to cave and do it for her this time) in order for her to earn back her tv cord so she can play video games. She also always bitches that the cat doesn’t sleep with her and I told her that if she didn’t have so much shit all over the place he probably would. Tonight I proved my point after she stripped the bed and tidied it all up he was sleeping happily at the foot of it. Maybe this will be enough to motivate her.
It’s so horrendously disorganized in here as well, so much so that I want to start buying decorating magazines again to find some inspiration. Maybe just some small-space pins on Pinterest will work too though. That’s what I used to do when I was a kid. I used my allowance to buy decorating magazines and would find an inspiration and try to mimic it in my bedroom. I feel like I am constantly complaining about organizing and too much crap, but seriously the floor plan of this place is so wacky that you can’t do much. We need an organizational unit that will incorporate the tv, gaming systems, and have maximum area to display collection and miscellaneous crap that seems to have no home. Every tv wall unit that I see is too big for the space or won’t work because of the limited areas we have to put it because our only long, straight, continuous wall is windows with about a foot of wall in between each one. I am starting to think one of my best options is to get two Ikea Kallax shelves, and run one lengthwise and stack the other on top so it’s shaped like and L. I would use the top portion of the lengthwise shelf to put the tv on and all the rest would be super awesome storage spots. The only fail I can think with this idea is that when the one is stacked on top it may be too tall because the ceiling hangs low on that wall in front to of the window because of the heating duct. Bah. This is getting ridiculous. Remind me not to get a corner unit again. It might work to run the 8 shelf lengthwise and then put a tall 4 shelf on the end but it might jut out in to the front of the window. I would have to do some serious measuring. The Brimnes might work though so I’ll have to remember that one because I’ve never seen it before.
I promised Merle though that I would get her one of those Kallax shelves in yellow and get rid of the dresser that isn’t being used as a dresser. I’m going to try to attempt to finally get one this week if Tom has a later start to the day one day (we are a one vehicle household and he takes it to work). Can you think of any inexpensive wall unit that I can configure to fit into really small and awkward areas?
I am also trying to master the art of folding a fitted sheet tonight and failing miserably. Every time I see one of the videos making it’s rounds, they make it look so easy that I try again but it never seems to work for me. I will admit that they do look neater than usual even if they aren’t done quite like he showed me (I love Clinton Kelly) 🙂
