It’s official. I’m an old lady. There’s no doubt about it. And here’s the proof.
Yep, I put up ruffled sheer priscilla curtains in my dining room. Old lady curtains. 🙂
I know that it’s been a while since I’ve published a blog post. The DH and I have been busy recently doing some super-serious spring cleaning which has been taking up a lot of my time. We are almost finished now; there are just a few odds and ends to finish up, but here is a recap of all the work we have done.
We moved a lot of the furniture out of two bedrooms and emptied the closets, one of which is a fairly large walk-in, and painted both bedrooms and both closets.
We also moved most of the furniture and other stuff out of the dining room, removed the wallpaper border from the walls, and painted.
We also moved the bookcases and some of the other furniture from the living room, and had Stanley Steemer clean the carpets in the bedrooms, dining room, and living room, as well as the stairs and hallway.
Almost everything is back in place now, but there are still a few odds and ends to take care of. A lot of work and a fair amount of inconvenience were involved, but, trust me, it was worth it. Our 30-year-old carpeting looks much better now, and nothing brightens up a room quite like fresh paint. We also did some decluttering, and I did some destashing, too. I think that clear plastic storage bins are the greatest invention ever. They are a boon to organizing and storing all the stuff one accumulates in a lifetime that one just cannot yet bear to part with.
Although all the painting, cleaning, and organizing has kept me busy recently, I have still found time for watching hockey and knitting. I’ll sum it all up with pictures.
