Welcome to my Interior World, a journey into my interiors…as well as a place where I share my thoughts.
Today my muscles are sore and a little achy….but that’s understandable, since yesterday—and into the night—I was on a mission.
I was tired of looking at the bookshelves in my hallway and finding them an obstacle course when I wanted to traverse the space.
What to do? Well, purging was the first thing that came to mind…and while the books in the hallway were newer ones, I knew that one of my shelves in my bedroom had older ones. In fact, most of those books were from the 60s.
First I took all the books off the bedroom shelf…and lugged them to the garage. I filled trash bags with them…and I admit that I over-filled them, hence the aching back.
But, voila! Here are the empty shelves!
Next….moving the books from the hallway shelves onto this one, while tossing the books to donate into trash bags…again.
Hooray! It took the better part of the day, since it is warming up here, and I had to take numerous breaks. Here is the finished bedroom shelf.
And here is the now empty hallway…except for the movie shelves on the left. They are thin and don’t impede my progress through the hallway.
I need to stomp and squish the carpet for a while, as the obviously darker area was beneath the shelves for years! My daughter has a trick with a credit card…and I worked it for a while.
Should I show you my garage? Empty shelves stacked against the wall…and two large trash bags and two boxes filled with books to donate. No…that would just make us all feel depressed.
I am still trying to figure out how I am getting everything into my car for the trip to the library. I am visualizing mini-trips to the car…and at the library, they bring a cart to the car to be loaded.
Yes, that will work.
Here are those hallway shelves…before. When I first started purging.
What do your interiors tell us about you?
