Lessons from Spring Cleaning: #2 Go With The Motivational Flow

Yesterday spring cleaning ran into 'get the house ready for company'!  

I was working on the master bedroom; neatening it up, dusting... that sort of thing.  As I was doing all this it occurred to me that with a bit more effort I could just do the spring cleaning for the room now.

The worst area was the corner on my side of the bed.  I have an old library desk (an heirloom from Himself's side of the family) that I use as my night stand.

This is a 'before' picture.  It's a bit old but I hadn't changed it around all that much since the photo was taken.

I took EVERYTHING out/off/away from it.  Sorted and tossed, dusted and organized...

And here's how it looks now!

I moved my computer in (it was on the end of the kitchen table and I just got sick of it being there).  So I needed to move in my other things I use while working on it.  Baskets, trays, and small bowls are keeping everything neat.  

I changed out the large Pottery Barn lamp for a smaller one that takes less room.  Got the cute lamp shade at Walmart.  

So much nicer to use now!

Took a bit longer than I had expected to get everything done in the room but waking up this morning to a neat and organized room was SO nice.

Now back to my regularly scheduled cleaning!


  1. Job well done! It certainly is nice to see that others feel the same way when they see their newly cleaned and re-ordered spaces. Pride! Wonderful!

  2. Looks like a great space to work. Even when our spaces aren't a total mess, it is important to go through them, clean and eliminate from time to time like you did. Thanks for linking up!
