Geeeeezzzzz - I have such a mess

I have been on a real roll trying to get some Spring Cleaning done, and the Familyroom is my latest project.

The entertainment center has been cleaned and polished from top to bottom.


 Blinds and windows cleaned thoroughly, and then I just shampooed the carpet.  Boy did it need it, sure wish this was replaced with either tile or wood floors.  Well maybe later this year.


Now, where in the world do you put all that furniture while the carpet drys.  Thank goodness there is room in the breakfast area.  So, the coffee table and 3 large chairs plus a few other things are all stuffed into this one area.  I left myself a trail to get to the computer, lol, of course that is a necessity.


What a mess.  This will probably take most of the day to dry, so thank goodness I am leaving soon for a birthday party.  Staring at this would drive me nuts.  So glad this job is done, I think shampooing carpets is a ton of work.




Hope you are having a fun and relaxing day, mine will be when this is all put back together.

  2. Spring cleaning needs to begin here, as well. You're way ahead.
    There have been some projects we've been taking care of first.
    It's a satisfying feeling when it's all done.

  4. Yes, our carpets need shampooing in our family room as well.
    It's snowing quite heavy here today so no spring cleaning yet.
    Enjoy the rest of your day.

  21. Talk about a "jump on spring cleaning" !! I would say you have already gotten a complete pole-vault on it, compared to where I am with it.

    YOU GO, GIRL!! Enjoy the birthday party!

  22. Such hard work Marty, but goodness when its sparkles like that it's worth all the time and trouble :o)

  23. Isn' is difficult having carpets cleaned! I mean, moving all that stuff, and like you said...where to keep it all day while the carpet dries! I wasn't very smart, I had some of our rooms cleaned the week before Christmas...never again! Will sure look good once dry and everything is back in place Marty!!! :)

  24. Feel free to come to my house when you're done. I dust today and tomorrow it needs it again! Housework is definitely a never-ending battle.

  25. Deep cleaning really is very rewarding...It's all behind you, and now
    the easy part is redecorating...
    have fun..

  26. I'll bet it all looks and smells so clean, though, Marty, so sometimes the mess is worth it! I wish we could look into different flooring here. We do have tile in certain areas and wood in the kitchen, but there is wall to wall carpet everywhere else. I'd love to put a black and white vinyl tile in the sunroom and wood in the dining area, but the configuration in this condo might make that difficult.

  27. It is a lot of work but there is nothing like clean carpets! I haven't even started my spring cleaning yet so you are way ahead of me! LOL

  28. Looking good! Did you shampoo the carpets yourself? My girls have carpeting in their bedrooms, and it SOOOO needs to be cleaned. Just curious if you hired somebody or went the DIY route.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Everything looks great, Marty! Your carpet looks amazing! I know everything smells so good and clean! I'm ready to do the same thing! Don't work too hard!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thanks for this motivation. I need to clean my hardwood floors, and I'm faced with the same dilemma. Where can I move the furniture while I'm cleaning those floors??? But what a feeling of accomplishment when you're finished.

  31. Marty,
    Whew! That made me tired just looking at all the shine going on at your house! A bit early for Spring Cleaning here on the Prairie! Lots of dreary days with drizzle...the kind that make you want to curl up with a good book or a GREAT blog!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  32. Marty I hear you. I hate messes and boy do we have one going on right now as well. Yikes!

    Carpet shampoo upstairs and new hardwoods are also on our agenda.

  33. No carpet cleaning of the new carpet yet...but I do dread it. I am still not over having the entire house painted, new carpet, kitchen and bathroom floors, new roof and AC installed. JUST thinking of doing even carpet cleaning puts me in a panic! By the way, mess? What mess?? :):)

  34. OH, I feel tired just from looking, Hang in there it will look great again.

  35. It's always worth it in the end though! ;)

  37. Marty,

    Thanks so much for stopping by. Your comments are always encouraging. I remember the days of cleaning carpet. That is hard work, but so worth it. I've started some spring cleaning too. Yesterday when I was cleaning, I found a leak under the kitchen sink. Thankfully, it was only the sink sprayer, and we were able to just purchase a new one and put it on. Something we could do ourselves. It had made quite the mess under the sink though. Just a slow drip. Glad it's fixed!!

    Your home is always so spotless. Everything just shines!

    Enjoy your clean carpet, and have a blessed week!

  40. Hi Marty!
    Those temporary messes are not a big deal to me when I know that it is now CLEAN! That's such a good feeling. Love the shampooed stripes on your carpet!
    Hope is smells fresh... that's always a bonus too!

  41. Great job Marty! That had to be a ton of work, but the payoff will be so nice! It's such a beautiful room.

    I hope you had fun at the party!

  42. We plan on replacing our carpet upstairs this year. It needs it bad! I thought the same thing. That will be a ton of work moving heavy beds etc. I don't look forward to that. You will be happy for the fresher cleaner carpet though when you get everything moved back. Now you can mark that off your Spring cleaning list!

  43. May I borrow you please? You are one ambitious lady!

  45. Marty, bet you are glad that task is DONE, sometimes DONE is my favorite word in projects and cleaning. I love for the job to be done. Thanks and hope your party was fun.

  46. First of all, it's entirely too soon for "spring" cleaning, more like post-holiday cleaning, if you ask me. But that said, I applaud your productivity, and I especially liked getting a peek at your bookcases, they look great.
