The Saturday Spruce-Up – Back Porch Spring Cleaning
March 31, 2012 at 10:13 am
All winter, every winter, my unused back porch turns into a catch-all room, a storage room, gathering dust and odds and ends including old lamps, stuff for Salvation Army, and who knows what else? Yesterday I spent naptime moving furniture and stuff, vacuuming, scrubbing and DE-CLUTTERING. It feels so good to have my cute little porch back.
Here’s the shameful before picture with a winter’s worth of junk:
Yikes! That's embarrassing... and this is the entrance we and guests use every time.
The view from the back door. Layers of dust and junk. I do like the bamboo shades though.
I included this one because you can really see the dust build-up under the bench. It's awful. Why am I posting these on the internet?! What is wrong with me?!
Okay, so here are the after pictures that (somewhat) redeem me as a wife, mother, and human being.
Aaaah. Much better. It's all scrubbed, washed, vacuumed. Much, much better.
This is a doll clothes armoire I had when I was a little girl. I love it as an end table!
No more dust under that bench!
Won’t my mommy be so proud of me?
Have a great weekend!
