Project Organization-Let The Purge Begin

I told you I was getting things done this year.  Step 1:  Clear crap

Ok, good start.  Of course now this is the official home for all things destined to leave the house.  We'll try a garage sale but the rule is that none of it comes back in the house.

We also cleared out the decopauge room minus the pool table and another table.  It's getting there.

We're having a skim coat done to the walls, but first they have to be treated with some chemical that's supposed to remove the decades worth of magazine clippings that have been (dis)gracing these walls.  In exchange for some of the services they are going to take the pool table off of our hands.  It's a little bittersweet.  Part of me wants to keep it because maybe some day I really will have a hankering to play a game of pool.  You don't know!  Keep in mind my hoarding tendencies here.  Alas, we decided that it's time for it to go.  No harm no foul really.  This was something that was left in the house.  Anyway, I need room for my eventual craft room/office.  There is a small window seat to the left that will get beefed up a bit.  I'm fairly petite, but I'm still three dimensional and my three dimensional arse needs a bit more room for comfort.

We also got a good start on the sunroom and the big garage.  There is sooooooo much to do though. But, you know what they say.  You've got to crack a few eggs and baby steps and something else that's supposed to sound inspirational.  It's a start anyway.


  1. Yay. Cleaning and dumping I often find to be one of the hardest things. I am always thinking "I could use this for..." And then it sits in the garage forever!!!!

    1. Yep, we do the same thing...hence the mess;)

    1. I laughed when I read your comment. Time to fess up. A lot of stuff came back into the small garage, but it's all the stuff that will be sold so it's temporary. Baby steps;)

    2. haha! I only asked because I have a horrible trash bin in two of the rooms in my basement, and I don't know what I would do with it. Thanks for letting me know about the comment. I had to change my email address and apparently it needs to be changed in several spots on blogger.

  3. the "decoupage" room? Did it belong to a teenager? I stapled tons of Teen Beat pictures to my walls in my parents room, and it was quite a project taking all the staples out when I moved back in in law school.
    Yay for getting all the stuff out! Despite getting rid of half my house I am still working on cleaning out the garage.
