Junk Free January: The Reveal!

Well, January is over, which means so is the Junk Free January: 30 Day Room Challenge.  I'm so glad that Serena from Thrift Diving hosted this Challenge, and that I had the guts to sign up.  I decided to clean out our disaster of an office.  You can see all of the before pics HERE.  Warning: It was AWFUL.

I'm so happy with the progress I made in this room.  It was basically just sorting, purging, organizing, and moving furniture, but it made such a big difference.  I mean, I can actually see the floor in this room now!  It seems about 10x bigger when I walk in this room.  Probably because I can actually walk in there now haha.


There are lots of things I still want to do in this room like paint the trim white (to match rest of house), paint the walls a different color, add length to curtains (I bought them too short-oops), re-do the desk (it has lots of scratches when you look up close), hang things on the walls, and the list goes on.  But I am SO HAPPY to at least have a functioning office for the first time in the 2.5 years we have lived here.

Thanks again Serena for hosting this challenge and motivating me to get this room in order!


  1. Wow! It looks great all cleaned up! I'm sure that was a lot of work, but totally worth it. I can't wait to see how the room progresses as you cross things off your to-do list!

  2. Wow!! Awesome job!! I love the way that little coffee corner looks and just how organized everything is :)

  3. It turned out great! I always love completely cleaning out problem areas in my home, the problem is I usually can never keep them clean. This space looks like it will be very functional, though. Awesome job!

  4. Great job, Ericka! Don't you feel good in there now? :) So glad you did the challenge with us this month!
