AFTER! Still need to take out the trash and am hoping I can find someone to give my massive collection of paper grocery bags to (checking into the local food pantry)... but I think it's time to move on to the entryway!! Here's the front entry way before: And almost after. I have to figure out the shoe situation and I have those couple things on the steps to carry back to the bedroom. But everything is vaccuumed, too. Including the icky spider that almost stopped the project altogether.
And while I was vaccuuming the front steps, I decided to go ahead and do the hallway edging which led to cleaning up the hallway. I was on a roll so I didn't stop for a pic but I did this lovely rendering of what it might have looked like before: And after: So my goals are almost completely accomplished for today! Will get started on the finishing touches (putting away stuff that was set near the correct location). Might even get started on the living room... but that will be easier to do when kids are in bed.
