The Powder Room Shines!

Here I go again...or still...depends on how you look at it. Momstheword is hosting a summer cleaning frenzy...and I'm ALL in! Stop by her blog to see other clean-a-holics and some awesome tips for getting organized and making your home sing, sparkle and shine! (click summer cleaning frenzy for the instructions....or click momstheword or her photo to vistit her blog)
This post is of my deep cleaned bathroom...she even got a little spruced up for the photo shoot!
The List:
-wash the window...(mumble about how you want a curtain of some sort for this one and vow to pick one up soon-again)
-take screen out and wash it
-wash walls
-clean light fixtures...and replace bulbs if needed
-edit, clean out, and organize drawers
-polish wood shelving
-wash and wax the floor
-clean/replace the rug....(I have a spare that I switch out...so I can clean one)
-scrub bathtub and surround...as well as tiles on top
-scrub toilet
-polish mirror
-take apart fan and vacuum/wash
-wash and dry decorator towels and replace
-edit/add/delete accessories and dust
-wipe doors
-wipe down cabinet doors, and clean inside cupboards
HERE IS MORE PROOF OF THE JOB BEING DONE!
Can you find the suitcases? the magazine rack? the porcelain shoes? the iron keys?
Keep looking...
I see keys...suitcases...

There's the shoes!
The magazine rack! I hung it on the wall and put towels inside...there's a key rack too....
...There is the key rack...it hides some of the outdated ugly of the medicine cupboard.Speaking of cupboards....(yes... I have a lot of hairspray...does hairspray expire?)
I am hoping to be given the word to go ahead and rip out this dated cabinet...and update to something that is not from the 80's....who ever built this house had "taste" that makes me think of acid wash jeans, and bangs that look like a tidal wave...lol
Thanks for stopping in! See you tomorrow for more of my cleaning mania! If you want to join the insanity...visit momstheword...she'll get you started!

I bet your entire home is just so lovely. I love your taste in decorations.....mmmmm, I so need help with this big ole house I'm in. No, it's not old, just big and weird floor plan. To start with we have 4 and a half bathrooms. A gas fireplace that sits in the corner, really a corner fireplace, what the hell do you do with a triangle mantle and 15 foot ceiling????????????

What a beautiful bathroom! I told you one of the family members of my house stopped yesterday, I was so thrilled I had been cleaning the day before, they usually stopped on laundry day or when I have everything pulled out and a mess! I still love it when they come!

Millie said...

Wow! You can handle gardening AND cleaning! Lovely room, and it sparkles!
For me,its "gardening now, housework whenever".

lilsista said...

Hey! Clean bathroom!!!! Sorry it's not urine soaked like mine...you're really missing out! Ha! Maybe I'll send the boys over to help you out with that! :) :( They really don't need a jail cell but they certainly could use a baby straight jacket...or maybe something along the lines of a Hannibal Lecter outfit? ....Kidding!...or not?...Okay ,yah...Kidding...(just a lil bit!)
Yes...definutely kidding now...(sort of not...) :) !

What a gorgeous powder room! I love the magazine rack as a towel holder!!

marty39 said...

Everything does look gorgeous. I started on most of the cupboards and I think I'm almost through. Now for the rest of the house, especially the windows. Your bathroom is not only sparkly clean it is gorgeous. I love all your beautiful decorations. Stunning. Hugs, Marty

Domestic Designer said...

Looks great. You have inspired me to get cleaning! Don't you just love to have a clean house. It just makes me feel good!

Helen said...

Good job! My favorite part of your bathroom? The really beautiful paint color! It is perfect for everything you have there.

salmagundi said...

Now, come clean mine!! Yours is wonderful and clean and sparkly. I'm encouraged to start on a cleaning spree, but not until next week. Sally

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Tootsie you have a beautiful powder room and it shines. I love the decor you have decorated it with. The suitcases are charmers.

Mary at My New 30 said...

Wow, what a gorgeous bathroom! I wish I could say you inspired me to clean, but I HATE housework. Which is odd since I used to be such a clean freak in my younger days. Go figure huh?

gardenerprogress/Catherine said...

What a nicely decorated bathroom! It's beautiful.

Miss Laura Lu/RMS4291960 said...

Your powder room is lovely! Girl, I wish I had half your energy! But you are inspiring me! I worked on my bedroom yesterday! Still working! God Bless! Lauralu :)
P.S. Tootsie I just wanted to say thank you for all of your sweet comments! It makes my day to see you came over to say hi!

Garden Antqs Vintage said...

You do have a lot of hair spray. If I run out, I know who to contact :) Really pretty bathroom too!

Ellie Mae's Cottage said...

Sigh you've just reminded that I have to deep clean my bathroom. It's the job in the house I hate doing the most. Yours looks wonderfully clean and sparkly! -Jackie

Cathy said...

You are putting us all to shame!!! Your powder room is so lovely!!! So shiny and clean!!! Job well done!!!

Enjoy the day!!!
XOXO

momstheword said...

See, I just knew your bathroom would be beautiful like this! I love your taste!

I also love your energy, girl. Look at you go!!!!!

artis1111 said...

Tootsie while you have been cleaning I have had my computer cleaned. It took me longer to get this cleaned that it took for you to clean that room. Ok, so I had someone to clean it for me. hehe My computer was in a mess. Now I am back. Kathy

RainGardener said...

It looks great! How do you do everything so well? I want my house to sing too but I want a MAID to do it for me!!!

CiNdEe said...

What a lovely powder room! You have done an outstanding job cleaning and decorating! I worked on my kitchen today. So much to do though to get it in ship shape condition!!!!
My question is how do you keep things so clean with children in the home?(-: It it was just me I could have a spotless house but the adult kids/hubby just don't feel the same way about keeping things picked up!

janet said...

oh my gosh i wish i had the energy to join this frenzy, im behind this year on my spring cleaning. Your bathroom looks sparkling and beautiful, so many lovelies to see and what a great feeling to know every room is so clean and fresh.
hugs
janet

I'm finally feeling well enough to visit and where do I find you? In the bathroom...I mean, in the powder room. And, it does shine! It's beautiful. You have got that special touch.

Your new blog design is very pretty, too.

Sassy said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous! I wish you could come and help me be more like you...your yard and your home is AMAZING! The colors and decorations are fabulous!!!

momstheword said...

Girl, do you have a picture of that southern belle dress? Love to see it!

As for daughter's room, have you ever been to Flylady.net? She has a control journal for kids, and they just seem to love it!

Perhaps you could print it out (it's free) and it has them break their rooms into zones and to clean a zone a week, I think. Keeps their rooms looking great and they seem to love it!

momstheword said...

BTW, when my kids were little i gave them chore cards. They just like "seeing" what they had to do. Eventually I just made a chore chart.

Jacki said...

How inspiring! Not the cleaning part - it would take a LOT to inspire me to deep clean that much, lol But my bathroom is just a bathroom. No decor, really, other than a wall-mounted candle holder. It looks very drab compared to your powder room. hmmm ....
