Today is the start of the weekend give my bedroom a thorough cleaning and decluttering assignment. WOOHOO there is no clutter! I decluttered and purged my brains out in there last year and did not even think about cluttering it up again all year. There have been times I had to store some boxes in there, but those were very temporary. With the AC crew coming in on Wednesday, I had already shifted and vacuumed under all but one piece of furniture and wiped down the night stands so even that was done. I do need to launder the bed linens and vacuum under the armoire, but John will have to clean the ceiling fan. The AC dude cleaned my vents until they look brand new so I don’t even have to do that!
This means I was able to spend more time in the Guest Room (which qualifies as a bedroom)/Office. Spend time in there I did too boy. I cleared out, packed up, pitched and outboxed everything on 4 shelf units and everything except books off the fifth big shelf. All my collection of nerdy/geeky toys is boxed up. Some of the beautiful models my husband built and painted of some of my gaming characters are now displayed in my den. Framed photos are boxed up. I’ll be thoroughly cleaning those empty shelves tomorrow, getting pictures and putting them up for sale on a local swap board. I’m still trying to decide what to do with some of the stuff. For instance, my husband had saved a commemorative coke bottle from the Rose Bowl in 1987, still full of coke. It’s worth anywhere from 10.00-30.00 depending upon who sees and bids on it. I’m not sure it’s worth the effort for 10.00 but 30.00 I could use. I have dutifully moved and dusted that damned bottle for 20 years. I definitely. do. not. want. it. Pitch or sell?
I just need to move the books and this shelf can be cleaned and sold or donated.
Three shelves fully cleared and ready for cleaning. I’ll be taking that wall unit down and reusing it over my crafting area. The shelf unit on the right wall is the one I’ll be keeping for books and gnerdy toys.
Unless John needs this shelf in his room, it will be cleaned and sold or donated. Look how my outbox pile has grown!
The fifth shelf cleared and ready to be cleaned and sold or donated. That is the 2nd outbox pile in front of it.
I am determined to pick out a paint color and really get this project going next week so if these spare shelf units do not get sold over the next 4 days they’ll be donated on Tuesday. As soon as John’s work schedule permits this weekend, he’ll clean my ceiling fan and I can launder my bed linens.
Well, haven’t you just been a busy little beaver! Impressive. And you’ve convinced me to make shelving a project all its own. I’m lookin at you laundry/storage cum master closet shelves. Not too bad but they kinda got left in the dust of all the other projects last cure although they were decluttered,cleaned and straightened. I’m ready to get more stuff outta here that’s been sitting unused for a year. Adding that to my list for spring. It can share time with allotted garden planting. Thanks for the kick in the pants. Bet you sleep good tonight!
oooh wow, you just kicked my brain in gear too. I don’t think I’m going to sell two of those extra shelf units. I think they’ll easily fit in each of my master bedroom closets and keep me from having to build shelves in those. Closet shelves were on my list of needed things. I’ll have to measure to be sure, but I’m pretty sure they’ll work well, look nice and be a time and money saver. I’m so used to building shelves that I had tunnel vision lol.
