Caitie’s Bedroom: Before

Caitie grew up, but her room didn’t. So gear from her current passions (fencing and guitar) commingled with stuffed animals and dress-up accessories. The storage needed an overhaul, as did the decor.

Found in (and Tossed From) Caitie’s Room
- 8 giant seashells
- 3 boxes of rocks
- 15 feather boas
- 50 stuffed animals
- 40 medals (relocated to the attic)
- 14 Chinese lanterns stuck to the ceiling
