Last week we started a new habit in the new year – each night we’ll complete a family project together, tackling a mess in the house and cleaning it up. We’re documenting our nightly projects on Instagram and you can follow along with #welcometoourreallife.
For today’s #makeovermonday we took on a bigger project and got serious with the girls and their messy bedroom.
Here are a few before shots – y’all, it’s a mess!
When you only have one set of sheets that fit a bed, sometimes they need to be washed and you just throw a big old comforter across their bed and let them sleep on that until you get a chance to wash the sheets. Anybody else do this??? Oh, just me.
Here is where the real mess happens – beside their bed on the floor.
Kylie would pile that corner up to the ceiling if I would allow it.
Kayla would just have an entire floor full of pillows if she could.
Everyone pitched in and we cleaned it up!
We allowed each of them to keep 5 animals and 3 “fun” pillows on their bed. These fit nicely at the foot of their bed and don’t overwhelm me.
Everyone agrees this feels MUCH better!
I love that they look forward to our projects and how this is teaching them to help get our house in order! I can always use the help 🙂
