My true plan for yesterday was to finish wallpapering the dining room but I’m in a clutter/declutter dilemma.
We had brought down from the attic our foosball table which we are donating to the youth group. Unfortunately it is temporarily set up in the dining room awaiting removal by a friend with a truck. Naturally it’s blocking the area where next I need to paper. Rats!
So looking for something else to get involved in I strolled over to the Cottage to see if I could make any headway in the clutter department.
I cleared off some old trim, a piece of foam rug pad, and an empty box which I set outside to be disposed of. Then it poured down rain.
I also moved the carpet shampooer back into the Cottage attic. We use the shampooer a few times a year so I like to have it handy but out of the way. It’s much easier to get things out of the Cottage attic than the attic in the house.
After I did all I could do in the Cottage (which was not much) I headed up to the attic in the house. In the back of the attic where we had stored the castle dollhouse I found a box with a game called Skittles. I’ve eaten many Skittles in my time but have never played Skittles and yet I own one. Should we keep this or find a new home for it?
While in this back corner of the attic I opened a large box which had 2 additional pieces to the castle. I had forgotten how complex it was. It’s going to take more time to refurbish than I thought.
Back in the dining room I gave the paneling under the area that is already papered a coat of white semi-gloss. Another coat will be necessary but bit by bit we’re finishing.
All this boring stuff and cleaning the bathroom was my uneventful Saturday. I know you’re jealous.
What were you up to?
