I am getting close to the end of this series. I am really happy with the progress I am making. The house is looking so much better now. I worked on my family room today. This room is the most cluttered room in our house. We did get some new bookshelves and got the books put away in them which has helped.
This room gets so dusty. I don’t really know why it builds up so much in this room but I definitely need to dust more often in this room than any other room in our home. There was a fine white dust on everything. I first thought I could vacuum it up but it became apparent it would need to be wiped up with a wet rag. So that it what I used to get everything clean.
I also moved all the furniture and vacuumed under the furniture. I was pleasantly surprised not to find too much under the furniture. Here are the before and after photos.
The room to me seem so much brighter now that all the dust is up and gone. I organized a few things in the bookshelves and put a few things away that didn’t belong.
I saved the easiest to do room for last. This room is our spare bedroom. It is the easiest because it is only used about once a month I will just need to clear out the clutter and clean.
To do list
- Remove items to donate
- Remove any clutter
- Dust furniture and window sill
- Vacuum the carpet
- Clean spots off carpet
