Simplicity: Autumn Clean Out- The Living and Dining Rooms

This week my focus for the Autumn Clean Out was on two thirds of our main room- the living room and dining room.  The following was my list for cleaning.

Living Room
  • Remove all decorations (we have one empty room where Faye used to live that I moved all of my decorations into- I mean all! Removing all of your decorations and putting them together in a separate location makes you feel like you are going shopping in your own home and help)s you view your items in a different light.)
  • Move furniture out of the way (I moved the sofas out of their normal spots to give me open access to the carpet)
  • Spot clean and scrub carpets (my biceps and triceps are killing me!)
  • Vacuum
  • Dust all furniture
  • Clean windows
  • Dust wall photos and pictures
  • Replace all furniture
  • Replace decorations (maybe rearrange a few pieces)
  • Make Dreams to Fulfill list
  1. Add draperies to cornices to finish window treatments
  2. Change throw pillows on the sofas
The Dining Room
  • Remove all decorations
  • Move furniture out of the way
  • Vacuum or sweep the floors
  • Mop the floors
  • Dust all furniture
  • Clean windows
  • Dust wall photos and pictures
  • Replace all furniture
  • Replace decorations (maybe rearrange a few items)
  • Make Dreams to Fulfill list
  1. Add draperies to cornices to finish window treatments
  2. Paint back door brown (to add pop and anchor the room)
I hope your Autumn Clean Out is going along as well as mine is.  Next week we will be looking at the kitchen. Happy cleaning!
