My plan was to get rid of the clutter in our bedroom hallway. ( Unlike the red oak floors downstairs, the second floor has pine flooring which is much softer.)
Our upstairs hallway is now officially decluttered except for Charlie’s shirts hanging in the doorway.
They won’t actually have a permanent home until the master closet is finished.
But I took the other unsightly bags and boxes and put them in a spot where Charlie (his stuff, you know) can address them at this early convenience.
I had taken the hall runner downstairs with the intention of shampooing it. (My method is here.)
Believe me, the rinse water was filled with black silt . Ewww. I laid the clean rug back in the hallway on an anti-slip pad and let it dry thoroughly.
Hallway and stairs finished. Check and check.
What room are you focusing on next?
