We reached our goal of getting rid of two-thousand-and-ten things in the year 2010!  And we got there MUCH faster than we anticipated!!  The garage/yard sales that we had helped trememdously.  Despite being done, however, we are still getting rid of unnecessary items!  It feels as though a great weight has been lifted (figuratively and literally in lbs.)

So how does someone celebrate such an achievemant?  By painting and rearranging the nearly empty rooms, of course!  Now that our “office/study” and spare bedroom have very few things to be moved and they still have the original white walls from buying the condo 4 years ago, painting was easier.

We painted the spare bedroom in a light green (same as our bedroom) with a dark brown accent wall.

For the office/study, we took inspiration from a box of tissues!  We did a dark purple, which was mixed from leftover dark blue, red, brown, and white paints.  It was matched with a light blue-gray color.

Below is the final results of both rooms!
