Crossing a Chore off of the House Checklist! (+TB Revas for Sale!)

We slept in until about 10am on Saturday, but once we were up, we immediately got to work cleaning out the junk room. With it being on our to-do list always (we'll clean it out and then it will magically accumulate more junk) + us being given a barely slept on bed, made it time to clean it out completely. 

This is what we started with..
(Keepin' it real, people.)

Then a little progress was made and you could finally see the floor!
This is the Goodwill pile..

FYI - Goodwill does not take tv's any longer because, according to one of their employees, a woman bought a 40 something inch flatscreen for $15, used it for 9 months before it stopped working, and then she wanted her money back! They, for a good reason, refused to take the tv back and give her a refund, so she took it to corporate and made a big stink about it. 
That big tv in the picture above was taken to the dump (which is even more disgusting than I imagined), but a smaller tv that still worked, we put on the street in front of our house and it was picked up by someone the next morning. Easy peasy. 

So after our trip to Goodwill and the dump (ick), we picked up the bed and turned the junk room into guest room #2!

Yes, we've got a long way to go with it, but we already had a complete bedding set that will work for now and I got to keep my chaise lounge! I refuse to get rid of it.  Will post more pictures of the room once I get the last few remaining random items stored under the bed. 

On a random note, I've listed my Tory Burch Revas on Ebay if anyone is interested in them! They are used, and the price reflects that.
You can view them here.

  3. It looks great. I have been working on cleaning out my guest room of all the junk that has piled up. My goal is to be done next weekend and drop everything off.

  4. It always feels SO good to cross something off the to-do list! Rooms lookin good!

  5. Great job cleaning!! I despise cleaning. We need to get to work on our guest rooms and I'm dreading it.

  6. You will love having an extra room for guests. So glad I'm not the only one this weekend who was stuck cleaning out rooms and organizing them!

  7. I LOVE crossing chores like that off my checklist! I recently did a big closet purge - felt awesome!

  8. I'm going through and reading all your house posts. Ha. It's nice to see all the progress you've made on your home...and it gives me lots of ideas for our first home!! Although we have room with a brick fireplace too, and I'm adament about painting the brick fireplace WHITE. You kept yours as-is and it looks great now I'm conflicted. haha!

  9. We have got to tackle our guest/junk room! Great progress!
