One thing leads to another...

It started with a leak from the upstairs neighbor's bathroom into mine...

I pondered having to fix this for a couple of weeks. Then when an opening in my calendar appeared, I decided the only way to handle this was to tear the entire condo apart, clean every inch of it and repair the damage from the leak.

Day 1 - the bedroom and closet - everything comes out, gets evaluated, cleaned and put back.

Time to pare down this old sewing's been years since I've picked up a needle and thread, so most of it can go away.

Here's part of the give aways from this go around...

Day 2 - the living room, everything comes off the walls and they get washed...everything gets taken out of the bookcase and cleaned before being put back.

Day 3 - the office comes apart, gets cleaned and then put back.

Day 4 - the bathroom gets the same treatment, including scraping off the damaged paint and prepping the surface for painting tomorrow.

After 10 years in this unit, the grime builds up and I am not in the mood for a complete repaint, so washing the walls will buy me some time.  Only regret, can not wash the ceiling - too much work (no!). 

A little obsessive/compulsive?  Who me...

  1. Well, Gayle we all wish we had your energy! But I like how you used the leaky bathroom to deep clean the entire apartment! For folks like us "any" excuse will do, won't it?
