12 hours in 12 seconds

Makeover Monday


Remember my living room looking like this?
My girls and I worked on it a few hours at a time 
with a little help from our dogs who kept climbing right
into the middle of the pile to lay down. 
I preserved the process for you in pictures. 
Watch below for 12 hour in 12 seconds.

Looks like fun, right?

YAY!
I'm so impressed...okay, you guys can come North for a few days now and try that again, right?

Um,let me think...NO! The girls were really great. They did very little complaining. I developed an eye twitch because I couldn't stand walking by it. Never again.

Flat out awesome, Dawn. I have a question. How long did it take for the living room to get that way with 2 feet of stuff? Did you get rid of or just move to another location? Okay, that's two questions, but still. LOL Cleaning out like that always makes me feel like I'd lost weight. Too bad it doesn't actually ahve that effect. :)

Marsha,
Sorry I wasn't clear in the post. ALL of this stuff came from the playroom. Which was the room I blogged about last week and called the Mama Elephant. To start the process in there, we moved EVERYTHING into the living room.
This is stuff that has been gathered and multiplied and ignored for a few years. The kids would "Clean it up" by getting stuff off the floor.

It is all G-O-N-E. Very little of it was kept. Just the books, a few of the games and some special toys. Most of it has been donated or passed down to younger friends. A good majority was junk and thrown away.

I do feel "lighter" in a way. Just wish that feeling was on my hips as well as in my heart!
