So, here's the before photos:
Although he's not quite as bad as the Girl as far as clothing on the floor, he isn't winning any prizes for neatness.
His closet is also filled to the brim, but he wouldn't let me photograph it with the door wide open.
Note the mess on the dresser. He will not remove one item from that dresser.
The little table in the middle of the floor is his 'bedside' table. He likes it there. Don't ask why, because I can't tell you. But I can tell you it's never been dusted once.
He tends to let his laundry pile way up.
Check out the dust on that bookshelf. Isn't that whale adorable. I got it when I was a kid and he's always liked it, so now he has it. But when I was a kid, it was dusted.
Make his bed? Why would you ever do that?
Isn't a desk for piling magazines and books on top? Note the drawer is missing. He completely killed that drawer until it was nothing but tinder.
Oh, and about the curtains. He picked them out himself and he loves them. So no comments.
The dresser remains exactly the same, as promised.
The laundry has been taken down to be washed. Hurrah! And the books are much neater in the bookshelf. The guitar still isn't in it's case, but let's not be picky, right?
The desk has been cleaned off, but the specially saved newspapers are still not filed away. They're all to do with the Red Sox, of course. Note the shoes lined up under the desk. That Boy does love his shoes.
