Saturday's Project

Cleaning the master bedroom!


I knew I wouldn't finish and I didn't. After dusting from top to bottom, it took me much longer than I'd thought it could possibly take to wash the wall behind the bed. It was a streaky mess. A long time roommate/housemate of my dear husband had painted this room with great gobs of paint on his brush--drips and bubbles and rough patches abound.


That's all I had time for this morning. And this afternoon all I had time to do (between returning from Tae Kwon Do and going to pick up the husband from work) was vacuum the lampshades and the window screen.


This evening I went upstairs to take this picture for you--and I was about to clean the window and mirrors when an irresistible urge came to lie down.




So I did.

(That's the new duvet cover I bought from AS IS at Ikea for $8. I think it's soooo purdy. The matching shams (also $8 for the pair) are in the wash.)

Very pretty! The bed demands to be lied down on.

very pretty! (and such a deal)

Good luck on all of your spring cleaning. I love spring cleaning because it really drives home the fact that winter is over (!) and spring is starting. Also, once you have the basis of a good clean house you can spend more time with the kid(s) and outside, and I am all for that.

Looks great -- so peaceful, and, as Wende said, ready for someone to lie down (except that would muss it up...)
