Update on the Harvest…

Remember this post?

Well, here’s the progress…

Closet-  Empty it, sweep and dust well, scrub anything that needs scrubbing.

Move the closet rod forward.

Put shelves inside at the back to hold things like rubber bands, paper bags, Kevin’s backpack, and shoes.  The shoes are going in there again.  It’s time.

Everything else that was in there will either be tossed, stored in the garage until I get to the proper room it will be stored in later, or put away (if I can do it, I will.)

South Wall-  Rearrange pictures.  (The current grouping annoys me.)

Move Mandolin  (It also annoys me)

Clean out coloring drawers under the table.  (They are overstuffed with coloring books and broken crayons/pencils/etc.  Probably buy new ones)

Oil the table

Fresh paint on a good portion of that wall.  (Might need to buy a new gallon)

East Wall-  Scrub the heater vent.  Repaint if necessary.  Consider building a box to cover in the off season.

Dust the bookshelves. Decide if keeping the Nina Rhoades books is a good idea or not.

Replace Kevin’s chair.  Clear out the magazines on his table and scrub it.

Put Bookcase from by my chair on the wall and move Emma and Stephen’s picture. (Well, actually, I moved it out of the room)

Go through contents of bookcase and declutter/organize.

Touch up the paneling where necessary.

Buy canvas for over doorway.

North Wall-  Touch up any paint dings.

Dust the wall

Put updated pictures in frames.

Replace ribbons or find new way to hang pictures.

Put picture of Kaylene in her frame.

Toss artificial mums and replace with another houseplant.

Buy sectional for that wall.

Clean over window shelf.

West Wall-  Move bookcase to East Wall. (Moved to Nolan’s Room)

Get rid of my recliner.

Find new home for paper shredder.

Make decision about the bookcase under the TV. Replace if a better idea occurs.  (Think I’ve found what I want there… must buy)

Organize/declutter/rehouse anything currently on that shelf.

Clean over window shelf.

Try to organize cords better.

Touch up paint.

Make new window curtain for the door.

Windows-  Prime scratched sills and repaint.

Make new Roman Shades.

Install cleats.

Trim-  Scrub.

Touch up paint.

Floor-  Scrub

Scrub again with Murphy’s Oil Soap

Oil with Lemon Oil on a hot dry night (our floors are unfinished, so this will not make them dangerously slick… it’ll be absorbed by morning). (opted to polish instead)

Beat the area rug, vacuum, then steam clean on the driveway. (Chose to replace when I find the right one)

Ceiling-  Paint?

Clean ceiling fan, replace globes if possible (not a fan of those globes).

So, as you can see, a lot has been done!  Still need to finish the pictures etc, but we’re getting there!  It’s SLOW WORK, but hey… our lives are more comfortable now.  That has to count for something.
