I just wanted to post current pictures of the dining room, where I’ve been spending considerable time sorting and purging stuff we don’t need.
On top of the bookshelf: our nephew’s birthday present (we’re giving it to him Tuesday), a stained glass art piece going in the window this week, and a clock waiting for batteries, to be hung in the kitchen. The books are all organized by category and the bottom four squares are EMPTY! You can see my CD player/radio and cloth napkins in one square. I’m still putting CDs into a binder to slide in the space there, taking a lot less space than their cases.
Look Ma, no Christmas tree! 🙂
The other side of the room was so full of stuff that I couldn’t even reach the window.I’m down to just four boxes and one bag of stuff in here: two are things I’m posting to sell on Craigslist (plus the nursing pillow) and two boxes and one bag are books I’m taking to the used bookstore to sell. They’ll all be gone this week. Here’s what’s left:
I bought the chairs on Craigslist for $75, six chairs that match the table, are very solid, and fit perfectly.
I’m mystery shopping a home goods store and buying paint this week, so the room will get a fresh coat of paint next weekend. I’ll be watching out for curtains on clearance or the thrift store, and need to hang a few photos and replace the bulb in the overhead light, and then it is a completely decluttered, totally usable dining room.
