We can't wait to see the final result of this great entryway!

Oh, we're halfway there, Whoa-oh, livin' on a prayer! This week marks the half way point for those of us decluttering our homes, our rooms and our lives in general. For some it may feel as though we are just now finding our groove and for others the road ahead may seem a bit longer than they had hoped. This week we are focusing on the living room and eating at home 3 times. Click through the jump to see the full details of our homework this week!

seshat_ has a great new paint job on an amazing landingstrip. What a great piece!

For those doing the Deep Treatment, had us take a look at the media we bring into and store in our homes.
This is no small task as the amount of media we are bombarded with is astonishing. It takes a strong will and great determination to really decide which things we can live without. But we know this will be a great week for everyone participating!

Deep Treatment:

  • Clean up the Living Room and related closets
  • Declutter books and media
  • Cancel your catalogues
  • Empty your Outbox
  • Consider increasing or decreasing color in each room
  • Consider increasing or decreasing hardness or softness in each room.
  • Cook three meals at home
  • Send out your invitations

    heymomo has made great strides in getting last week's landingstrip renovation taken care of. This is a great site to come home to.

    For those of you doing the One-Room Workout, we know the hours you may have logged already trying to find the right pieces of furniture or accessories for your spaces that fit your budget. If you aren't finding what you want, wait. We believe it's better to buy less furniture and live with a room that's a little bare until you're able to find or purchase the best quality.

    One Room Workout:

  • Begin your shopping list and enter all prices in a spreadsheet.
  • Consider the scope of the work to be done
  • Consider hiring a professioal organizer
  • Visit a paint store to collect samples

    degerkas has an oven ready to eat off of, or at least the things that come out of it!
