It might not look like much....

but this room is clean! A major feat given the trash, personal debris and the cat pee/poop. YUCK. The windows, walls, baseboard and floors are bleached and ready for priming. YAY! There is one more room to go plus the hallway to the upstairs. I think it's safe to say....we are tired of cleaning but we will make it through.

We are enjoying moving a few items in now - a welcome reprieve from cleaning! A friend gifted us this antique dresser (plus a matching mirror and head & foot board), which we love. Check out that floor too!

We found this nice lamp outback in the trash pile and it works!

There are wood casters on the dresser; isn't that cool?!

A view out the kitchen window...warm sunshine, seeded goldenrod, a beautiful walnut tree and oh yes, another pile of trash. Let's not look at that right now....

  3. My mom's standard for a clean house was, "You could eat off of their floors!"

    No doubt!
