The past year has been tough. I was depressed and anxious after losing my mom. As a consequence, my declutter efforts got derailed. I kept trying, but there was little to no progress and I couldn't figure out what to do.
It seemed no matter how I set up my bedroom, it just didn't flow. And I would have to move things like sports items into my hall or entrance to access them. Neither of those spaces actually have room, so it was nightmarish.
Just before the holidays, I figured out a new plan. This originally included changing to another bed frame that I already had and moving my bed and dresser near the window instead of the door. The canopy frame took up space I wanted for art and I couldn't stretch out fully without my feet touching the footboard, which annoyed me.
Here is the disastrous starting point:
Yes, that was all in one 11' by 20ish' room.
The day after I got back from holidays, I got started. I had been wanting to add feet to my IKEA Kallax unit I use as a bedside table. This took longer because my drill wasn't charged. I was planning to do this later, but my evening plans had fallen through, so I could do more of the reorg.
I was originally planning to use the base for my DIY loveseat for a reading nook, but I realized I didn't really have space for that. I came up with a new plan for reading, which was moving a chair from the living room. That space was also overly cluttered and unusable anyway.
I also wanted to move my craft table out of my living room because it was adding to the clutter and I wanted more space for things like my rowing machine.
It soon became clear to me that because of the size of the two rooms, my bedroom and living room needed a bigger plan.
