Before/After: Playroom/Bedroom

Filed under: Bedrooms,Before/After,Kids — Colleen at 1:43 pm on Thursday, March 19, 2009

Does this look familiar?  Three young children share this bedroom/playroom.   In just four hours, the client and I were able to transform this room and even sort a large collection of toys being stored.  We filled my van with donation items and moving toys with small pieces to an area where the mother can regulate these toys.  Here are the fantastic results:

Before After: Spare Bedroom

Filed under: Bedrooms,Before/After — Colleen at 3:52 pm on Tuesday, February 13, 2007

Over time, this spare bedroom had become a storage hall for all those “I’ll deal with those later” items. Eventually, the room became too chaotic to even enter. Now, after four hours of help from Set Me Free! , this client is in control of her room.  She still has a few boxes to go through, but the project is now in a manageable stage for her to complete on her own.  In the meantime, she now a space she can use!

(Yes, this is the same basement, look at the hammock on the left side of each picture to gain persepective).

Here’s what the client has to say:

“It is simply amazing the difference that can happen in a much shorter time that I anticipated. Just setting the time aside for you to come over and help made it happen. Set Me Free can only begin to describe the weight off my shoulders I feel at tackling and cleaning up areas that are now being used as living space. I could not have done it without you! Thanks so much!!!” Ann P.

You can be set free too, hire Set Me Free to quickly tackle your overwhelming project!

Before/After: Basement Play Area

Filed under: Before/After,Living Areas,Storage Areas — Colleen at 9:27 am on Sunday, December 3, 2006

Here are some recent pictures from a home that is getting ready for sale. Since the toys can’t be packed up until the children move, we sorted through toys and created a play area. Now that the toys have been scaled back, you can notice some of the great features of this walk out basement. Repositioning a couch to the corner draws prospective home buyers into the room and imagine the room’s full potential. The room can now be shown to potential buyers and still be functional space for the home owners.
