After I laid Ely down for her nap, I made myself dizzy cleaning, decluttering and tidying as much as I could possibly do before she woke up. Here is a before picture of Party Central. It is now back to regular old Dining Room. But soon will become Party Room for one day.
Here is my workspace. I just remembered I forgot to take an after picture!!! Grrrr! Please close your eyes and imagine this table empty and clean with placemats on it! I sorted all my materials and took 95% of my party planning things upstairs to the sewing room.
Then I gave some much needed love to the front door, interior..and sideboards.
I get a very strange pleasure out of cleaning sideboards!!
Here is the nastiness I freed the entryway from.
Finally the door was ready for Muno.
One good door cleaning deserves another. I had never, ever cleaned the exterior of a front door. YUCK! I cant believe I never noticed how filthy it was. Notice my Christmas sign…
Here is a close up of the filth.
And a clean after shot.
And once clean, it too was ready for adornment.
And here is a gratuitous picture of my best beater cleaner.
