Chavonna and Ebony Scott have shared a room since they were toddlers. But now that Ebony has left for college, it is clear that Chavonna's new roommate is clutter. Piles of clothes, old dolls and scattered papers leave little room to even walk in this space.
Professional organizer Kristin Long comes to the rescue. She intends to make the bedroom a functional space for Chavonna. She begins by moving Ebony's remaining items out of the room and helping Chavonna sift through all of belongings, deciding what should be kept or tossed.
Once she has a clean slate to work with, Long reveals her plan for the room: bringing in a new spacesaving trundle bed, a more functional dresser, and a new desk, creating zones as she goes. There will be a music area, study center, media area and reading corner.
Finishing touches will include replacing the carpet with hardwood floors and tearing down the wallpaper to apply fun, bright paint.
A pro organizer is charged with getting a kitchen back in proper working order.
