Spring Clean your Living Room/Family Room


Lets move on to the Living Room/ Family Room!


Begin by cleaning out any clutter.  That is always the best place to start in any room. 


You will notice I do a lot of vacuuming and dusting in the living room. Living in the country and heating with wood tends to equal a lot of dust!  I donít think I ever really new what the word Ďdustí meant while living in the city! LOL..  I have a canister vacuum that has a nice little soft brush on it and I use it a lot for cleaning dust off of my furniture, tables, light shades, etc..  


Remember to add and subtract from this list as it applies to your own home!


This room may not take a whole week.


Have fun!!
