Spring Cleaning and Stuff...

I don't know if the spring cleaning bug got me or I'm just so glad to be home. But lately all I want to do is work on the house. This last week has been a busy one!

We went to IKEA on Thursday and got Autumn this HUGE Expedit shelving unit. It takes up a whole wall in her room. Assembled it Sunday and attached it to the wall last night (keep in mind that everything from IKEA is Metric and of course didn't line up with the wall studs--ugh--took as long to attach it to the wall as to build the thing!).

Hoping to work on getting her toys organized and put up after lunch today.
I painted the door between the kitchen and Matt's future office with 5 coats of magnetic primer, and finished it off with chalkboard paint, so it's now one big magnetic memo board. Autumn LOVES drawing on the bottom half of the door and the top is great for lists and things. :-) Talked about doing it forever, so glad I finally did.
Painted the front door. Not quite the color I was expecting, but it's a million times better than it was. Took a few days to finish since I was working around the rain.
Yesterday I did my regular housecleaning then moved all the furniture out of the dining room and scrubbed the table legs and the chairs (with Autumn's help, of course ;-)). Then got down and SCRUBBED the floor on my hands and knees. Exhausting, but totally worth the effort. :-) Wiped down the walls and washed the windows and then moved all the furniture back.
Today I'm planning on doing basically the same thing in the kitchen. Making sure everything's clean clean clean!
