Here was the spare room as of Friday. Yes, there was a lot of stuff in there.
Another view. This past year we did a lot of culling -- especially in Maddie's room. All the toys from when she was younger as well as outgrown clothes were deposited here. In addition, an old computer desk, sewing table, twin bed and dresser took up a lot of space. I planned on having a yard sale this past summer, but the summer is gone now and it never happened.
Instead of leaving this room a mess until next summer, we took everything up to the attic. (A walk-up, full size attic is one bonus of living in an old house!)
This left things much more manageable and the floor was visible by Saturday night. Sunday morning there was much floor mopping & continued organization, as well as some IKEA assemblage.
Now we have a comfy place to sit, and a futon for overnight guests. I do have a bit more organizing to do in here, but now I have space to work with and it all seems less daunting.
