Clear The Clutter And Enjoy Your New Space

On of my latest discoveries through Instagram and YouTube is makeup and fashion guru Lisa Duncan. Her YouTube channel is on my weekly must watch list.

Her reviews on hair, makeup and fashion are not only honest but her southern accent makes you feel like you are sitting at her house drinking a glass of sweet tea.

This video is about the transformation of her FROG room(finished room above the garage). Her step by step description of what it took to transform the room was so perfect I had to share!

The room use to be her kids playroom and a sewing room but as they grew it had become a catchall for everyones unused junk.

It had been bothering her for awhile but everytime she went up there she dreaded the thought of having to tackle it and knew it would be a tough job. Most people share this feeling when they have just one room in their house that makes them crazy!

In her video you will hear her explain step by step the process she went through in one week to gain a brand new space to call her own.

Step 1 Call 1-800-GOTJUNK. She said it was the easiest transaction and well worth the money. She called on a Sunday and they came on a Monday.

They took all her unwanted items including old exercise equipment and moved what she was keeping but did not belong in the FROG room downstairs. Anything you do not have to move yourself is an added bonus!

Step 2 Replaced the carpet with a remnant piece from a local carpet store. Remnants save you money!

Step 3 Called her local Sherwin Williams store to get the name of a painter to paint the room. A fresh coat of paint is the easiest way to transform a room.

Step 4 Numerous trips to Goodwill and the Thrift Store. 

Now that the room is empty, new carpet and new paint she sits in the empty space and admits to being thoroughly exhausted. I hear that from many of my clients when we complete a project.

It takes mental and physical energy to clear the clutter. You have to have a goal in mind and see it though to the end.

Lisa shows in this video the effort and motivation it takes to transform a space in one week.

It is never easy while you are going through it but the end result is worth all of the effort!
