rescaping 60 gallon

So I bought some new driftwood that I've been soaking now for about 8 weeks. I was not happy with my current scape , so I took everything out and put some of the plants in my old 55 gallon tank , and took some to a LFS. Of course in the process I stird the heck out of the substrate. Is this going to cause me any problems ? And will my current bb have anything to live off of now that the tank has no fish or plants. I am going to mount the new wood on some plexiglass , in the shape I want , and bury the glass under the substrate. I might should have left the fish in there , I just don't know. First pic is right before I took everything out. Second is afterwards. Should I just start completely over ?

you should have soaked the wood and had everything ready so all you would of had to do was rescape and put the fish back in, now you face possible mini cycles and the plants not surviving that long, i would put them back in the tank until you are ready
