Spring Cleaning 2012: The Basement Family Room


I did it...sort of!  It has taken me forever to cross the basement off my spring cleaning list!  It is only a partially partially finished basement, so I couldn't do a real spring cleaning.  But what I did do kept getting postponed.

What I did:

  • swept the stairs
  • vacuumed the sofas
  • washed the bookshelf
  • organised and put away toys (so much easier since Kevin got rid of 2/3 of them)
  • vacuumed the rugs (actually, Kevin did that because he did some drywalling on Wednesday.)
  • cleaned out the deep freeze

Plans for this room:

  • Well, that's really Kevin's jurisdiction at this point.  Once we get to deciding on a paint colour and picking carpet I'll have a more active role.  Before then, it still needs plaster and taping, sanding, priming, dropped ceiling...in other words, all the non-fun stuff.


Oh well.  Such is life in a house with kids!  I was going to tidy up to take the after pictures...but it's 10:00 PM, and I still have editing work to do before I go to bed.  At least it's vacuumed.

11 more rooms to go!

  2. I think we all have one room in the house that looks like this = kids will do that to a place. Can't wait to see what you do with this room - it's such a blank canvas, you could do anything!

    Have a great day.
