If you ladies only knew how much I've come to LOVE Tuesdays LOL

Seriously Janice, you did an awesome thing but creating this "Tackle it Tuesday", now I always feel that I need to have something to show on the blog and my house is really starting to become organized. Pretty soon though I won't have anything to clean, and then maybe we should switch it to "Mess it up Monday"????? LOL

So this weekend I tackled my living room. Yes, you may wonder why I would do that, and no, it's not because I had nothing better to do, but the fact that through the years we collect more and more stuff and before you know it you have a really cramped living room.

It was hard work and took all day long to move everything around, toss out stuff we didn't need and find a new room for other things.

This was the living room before, and as you can see, it was really small due to the HUGE tv and the sectional couch.

The first thing to go was the toys, remember I told you a few weeks ago that those were removed from the living room and put back in the kids rooms where they belong?
Then the reorganizing began. It was a real pain but I have to give a shout out to Phillips (the makers of the tv) because they were brilliant in putting wheels in it LOL
So it's actually easier to move and lighter than my kids LOL

And this is what the living room looks like now. WOW, who knew it was actually this big???

So there you have it, that was my "Tackle it Tuesday" project. For more participants run go on over to "5 Minutes for Mom". :)


  1. Your living room looks beautiful! I love to decorate and it bugs me that we have not done that here. We aren't gonna be here long so I have not bothered. Most of my stuff is still in storage. Don't get me wrong its still a cazy home but no extras.

  2. Looks very nice. I'm a decorating show junky and also check out real estate sites just so I can take the virtual tours of other peoples houses, so thanks for the fix!

  3. Wow alot more room! Funny how a little change makes a world of difference. Good job girl!

  4. Wow what a change. It looks great. I change stuff around all the time. Evertime people come over the comment on the change. Now if only I could paint my living room. I am starting to think I will never get it done.

  5. Wow. It's like one of those before and after reality room makeover shows! It looks really great!

  6. i love the pic of the living room. especially lola in the first pic at the bottom of it looking in the camera. I like seeing the pugs in second pic as well.
    You did alot this weekend. Good job honey

  7. First, thanks for stopping by my blog. Second...Wow, what a great job! The puggies probably love having the extra room to roll around!

  8. Your living room is LOVELY! How wonderful to see all the beauty after straightening it up.

    My Tackle it is up, but not as dramatic as yours.

  9. this tackling things is TOTALLY CONTAGIOUS
    i find myself ORGANIZING ON OTHER DAYS!
    i wonder if i will EVER run out of things to do on tuesday?
    your room looks AMAZING! great job!

  10. Okay, now I am completly intimidated...Wow, girl - awesome!!!
    It though looks like your doggy doesn't know what to think about all the pace now...I really need to do something in this room I am sitting right now...So, I need some cheers. I want to get it done before the summer is over in the hope that my mom might come for Christmas from Germany...
    I really enjoy the Tackle Tuesdays, because I feel I am accountable to the ladies participating...

  11. This was so awesome! I am always so afraid to do change. I don't know why, it usually looks so great. Good Job! And I love your treasure Tuesday post also. So sweet!

  12. woohoo - good work! You really increased the space. But I must say when i saw the first picture I was confused. It looked pretty tidy already! But it looks even better now. high five to you!

  13. Excellent transformation!!! Great job... :)

  14. Good going!

    I also love what Janice has done with Tuesdays, and I love the dogs!
