HUMP DAY POTPOURRI: HOW TO MAKE CLEANING FUN — DEC. 12

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Welcome to Hump Day Potpourri, and to the latest tidbits from my world.

I really dislike housework and will put it off for as long as possible.  And while my house looks “picked up” and somewhat orderly, it needs a deep cleaning from time to time.

So how do I make it fun?  By rearranging stuff and afterwards feeling as though I’ve created a “new” room.

Yesterday I tackled the bedroom.  I hadn’t done much in here for awhile.  Here’s what it looked like:

The boudoir...Before

It looks like a small “tweak,” but it took some pushing and shoving—after I’d taken all the stuff off the tops of things—and I had to take out the desk drawers, etc.  Then there was all the vacuuming and dusting…sigh.

Here’s another view:

And a table that was previously in this part of the room is now opposite, near the exercise bike.  And I swapped out the chairs.

I ended up with an extra table that is now in the garage, waiting for a new home someday in another part of the condo.

And here’s one final close-up of the desk area.  The phone charger is on the desk now, and the cords are all behind and to the side of the desk:  invisible, mostly.

The photographs on the walls throughout the room were taken by my eldest son when he lived in Ireland.  I like the Irish feeling of this space.  Note the Irish vignette atop the desk!

    1. I should modify that description a bit. There was no rug shampooing. That is for another day!

      Thanks for visiting, Patty….and I don’t know where these ideas come from. I’ll suddenly look at the room and hear a voice saying: change it! lol
