Project Big Boy Room: Update 1

There's currently not much noticeable progress going on, but (as you'll see in the before pictures) we had a crapload of junk in this room. Three+ years of just putting things in boxes or on the floor/closet of this room if we didn't want to deal with it or didn't know where to put it. So, not only did we have to deal with the stuff, but we had to retrofit other parts of our house to accommodate more storage, etc. This included moving the office (desk, filing cabinet, computers, printer, etc) into our bedroom, which actually works out quite well to my excitement. We also have a large walk-in closet in our living area that we readjusted to put in the small bookcase full of all my precious books and to have some storage items in. Some stuff was put in other closets and locations around the house, as well, but that's where the bulk went, if not to the massive pile of giveaway stuff in our garage. Both of those areas still need work, but we'll get to them later. One major project at a time! You'll notice that there is still some stuff in there, and that's the stuff we have no clue what to do with. We figure it'll be fine in the middle of that room for a few more weeks. The big bookshelf will be making it's way to my parents' farm later this week.
    Now, for pictures. Before:

    • room has been basically cleared out
    • holes/cracks are filled, spackled and sanded
    • paint has been purchased
