it is good to be back! after a long family weekend, it's time for me to change gears and share my energy with the rest of the world. between sibling sword battles, learning to shoot rubber bands with our fingers and a family sushi treat on sunday, i can say the family fulfillment factor was high this weekend.
recently decluttering and styling liam's bookcase (from his early childhood years), made me think about this post. spending a hour or so clearing out old books, videos and collections of pins, marbles, shells and basically anything liam keeps, made me feel like i accomplished a GREAT big task. and, it made the feng shui flow in his space, this is not superstitious ju-ju...it works!
here is the before photo of the nook that liam's bookcase was placed in (i just plum forgot to get before photos of the cluttered bookcase...trust me, it didn't look so good and housed about 50 or so dvd's):
ta-da! the styled bookcase reveal. in this post from Cosy Carolina, my friend talks of reusing what is already around your house, and i love this idea! i happened to have an abundance of those mason looking storage jars from our country house that had a HUGE pantry; and so i decided to make these useful.
a few of his favorite movies made it through the decluttering process!!! now, i have another project figuring out where to put the remaining dvds.
this clearing of space felt so good, not only did i feel a great sense of accomplishment, my mind is no longer focused on the mess and clutter of this bookshelf. happy monday and happy ch'i, dana
