So Saturday was the next day of clearing things out and putting them where they belong. For those who missed it, we sold our house in town (home for 16 years) and downsized a bit to move to an apartment. But there were things that didn't fit at the apartment and other things that we still want but don't need in town and they had to go to the farm as well. Needless to say, things where a bit cluttered. OK, a lot cluttered. When carrying things in and your arms are full, it's so easy to just put it on the bed. Then when that's full, put it on the table. Then the other bed. Then the dresser. Then the couch. Then the floor. And then...well, you get the picture.
Last weekend, it was the sitting area off the bedroom that I worked on, and the weekend before that was the living room.
This weekend it was time to focus on the bedrooms.
This is the bedroom before. The bed was filled with stuff. It was just a matter of putting it all where it would ultimately go. I also did another culling of stuff and ended up with a couple bags of trash (turns out we didn't need whatever that was after all).
And here it is after! Everything put up! Lots of walking back and forth to other rooms to cabinets and drawers and shelves, but it's done, that's all that matters.
And now the bed is sleep ready, ha! However, there was no sleeping on Saturday, still lots more to do.
Here is the dresser in the master bedroom, also piled up with stuff...
...and here it is after, cleaned off and looking nice. Drawers are also organized.
Next it was into the guest room.
Look, another dresser piled up with stuff, imagine that!
But it looks much nicer when it's cleared off and neat! By the way, this dresser is an old child's dresser. It's still empty (has drawers inside cabinet doors) so we still have room for storing of things.
And here is the bed in the guest room. YIKES! Quilts, blankets, knick knacks, cooking supplies, boxes of photos, linens, games, even an electric turkey fryer (we use it for boiling large amounts of water). So some stuff went to the kitchen, some to other rooms and closets, even the barn (the turkey fryer).
And now the guest room is nice and neat as well.
Next stop will be the kitchen, the dining room (you should see THAT table, LOL) and mudroom. Of course, after all that, then comes the porch, and by then, it should be time to mow and edge again. It's never-ending, that's for sure!
