Messy room cleanup

It took most of the day but my dressing room/craft storage room/library went from this:

 

Clutter and mess

I can't find the floor.

Too much stuff!  I can't even get to the spinning wheel.

Boxes, boxes, trash!

MESS!

MESS!

 

Six hours later and this woman is very happy and gratified by the new look and clean up!!  I didn’t even mess up another room doing it!  Take a look and see if you can see a difference:

Easy entry in and out of the room.

Wide open floor!

Bookcase4 of decorating, crafts, how-to's, home repair, gardening, crocheting, sewing, everything in order.

Organized bookshelves and library.

Clothes are mashed together, more room to sort day clothes from work clothes.

I am just so thankful that it was a cool day or I would have fizzled into a rag mop!  I can hear my daughter now,  “How long will it stay that way!!”  She knows me so well and knows that if I get in a hurry, something or all will be in disarray all too soon.  My job now is to slow down and take notice.

I only have one major cleanup left on the second floor but will need some help moving some excess furniture out of the house into one of the storage buildings and do a major clean out of all the linens in my home.  We are storing the linens from three households since our move several years ago and it’s time to pass it on to Goodwill so someone will get some use out of it without costing them an arm & two legs!!
