Redoing the Bedroom

We've been doing a lot with the house lately. It looks much more spacious since the litter pan is now on top of the toilet, freeing up the floor, and there is a different, smaller couch than originally and the TV is a flatscreen against the wall with a narrow-profile entertainment centre.

So, the bedroom. Here are the steps: (Steve, please comment/correct)

1. Purge wardrobe and closet. Take rejects to thrift store.
2. Take boards, put them up on top of the boards on the sides of the closet to make shelves. Put existing plastic bins on the shelves, freeing up floor.
3. This is the tricky part. Stagger poles for clothes with lesser-used clothes at the back.
4. Buy full-size captain's bed that we saw at the NEX. Put clothes from the wardrobe shelves in the the drawers. Hang clothes in closet. GET RID OF WARDROBE.
5. Post before and after photos.
6. ????
7. PROFIT!!!

The captain's bed we've found is spiffy. It's stained wood and has a headboard with shelves for Steve's C-PAP unit and my books/Kindle/notebook/runes, etc. Just going from a queen sized bed to a full sized bed made a lot of room in our bedroom, so it should really be functional after this.

Unrelated, we are also planning on getting rid of our two existing cat trees and replacing it with a single, taller cat tree for Ivan.

Sounds great. I need to de-clutter. We're going to have to try to combine two households, especially if one of our houses sells before the other. I also told David we could bring his 50" flat screen TV down from his house and put it in the living room. I never had TV's in the living room growing up. Mine's in an old ropero that my great-grandpa made. So, it's a big step.

I commend you for going down to a full-sized bed. Right now, despite the size, is move up to a king.

PS: I deleted a duplicate comment which posted.

How big is your wardrobe? I might have a use for it.

Our house is tiny. The wardrobe is Ikea, about 20 inches deep and seven feet wide. However part of that width is a separate shelf unit. Click my "house" tag and you might find a picture of it. It has a built in shoe rack on the floor even.

Ah, okay, that's not quite what I had in mind. Thanks for letting me know, though.
