Dining Room Echoes After Decluttering

Do you find that once you clear the items that shouldn’t be there, the room not only feels clean and clear but it also echoes? I believe that it’s because there is less stuff to absorb the sound.

Being the weekend, I had a bit more than 10 minutes to spare for today’s challenge, so I was determined to declutter the dining room as it just attracts clutter that we bring in or leave around. This is what I was faced with…

Not as bad as some rooms in the house, but no one could really get around the table to sit down because there were bags and recycling in the way. Not to mention the unnecessary items on the table.

As you know, I started with the right hand corner of clutter yesterday, leaving today to finish the rest.

So, I cleared the space and found a place for everything lying around.

I don’t particularly like our table so popped a tablecloth over it, which brightened up the room.

To top all of that we actually sat at the dining room table as a family this evening to eat our dinner.

So that’s a double result!

Until tomorrow…

  1. Ah yes the dreaded dining room drop zone. In our house it is the kitchen so I end up having to clean and clear on a daily basis otherwise the house would cease to function.
