Organizing My Daughter's Room

This is almost embarassing but after a week being cooped up inside after her surgery, this is what my daughter's room looked like:



We had stripped the beds so we could flip the mattresses and clean the sheets, skirts and comforters. Then, after HOURS of work, this is what it looked like:



Not bad for an afternoon's worth of work? Right? The CLR part was washing some of her tub toys (not pictured here but part of her room). We have rock hard water and it worked like a charm!

Great tackle! I don't blame you for focusing on your daughter and letting other, not as important stuff go. It must have felt great when you accomplished that, though! :)

Maddy said...

We also have rock hard water. You did great. I know how many hours of hard labour that represents. Well done you.
Cheers

We just tackled my daughter's bedroom, too, and a giant garbage bag was taken out at the end for Goodwill.

Oh how I remember those days. I would throw everything into the living room and start with a clean slate. Those days wore my ass out!!!!

Organizing Mommy said...

Hope you are recovering from surgery well. I believe: kids first/ the house second. It does feel good to get something done, though.
