tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I am joining up with 5mintesformom today for tackle it Tuesday. I am really behind on A LOT of things lately and not only am I going to tackle it Tuesday I am deeming this Tackle IT November. My two main projects are going to be my master bedroom and general picking up.


One of the main reasons we bought this house was because of the master bedroom, we even upgraded a few things knowing that it would be a great place for us to hang out and enjoy. But much to my dismay, I rarely even go in my room. It is messy and unorganized and the room I just throw everything into when I am trying to clean other areas. So this month I am going to make it a better place. A few things I have already done...made a comforter that I like, changed the curtains and bought paint for the walls. Of course the paint is still in the cans on the floor but I promise I will get it done this month (pending any real disasters).




We did put in this closet organizer and paint the closet. It has helped a lot with our clothes, believe me they were everywhere. Don't mind my weird clothes and terrible photography the room was a pain to shoot!

What things are you tackling? Leave me a comment and go over to 5Minutesformom and link up!

I am so on that page with you! Unfortunately, my master bedroom is small. I HATE it! So I am not only needing to clean it from top to bottom but I need to figure out how to make it work so it looks like there is lots of room. :( Let me know how I can help you achieve this goal because I certainly know ho you feel.
Love your closet. Wish I had something big like that. Good for you on doing this. We actually started on the basement last weekend and got tons accomplished. Next is our office/playroom which seems to be in constant disarray! Needs to change and I'm getting it done little by little! Have fun today!

I tackle my house every Friday or Saturday. I do my "deep" cleaning every other week because I'm a clean freak like that. If I could start a cleaning/organizing business, I would. It would take me forever to clean someone's house because I'm so picky.

Maybe this is what I need to help motivate me to get my house in order! Thanks for the referral to "Tackle-It Tuesdays"!

If I declare something on Tackle-It Tuesday, do I actually have to accomplish it? LOL!

That is a pretty awesome closet. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I need to do a tackle it November also.

What a great closet! Our bedroom becomes the dump room too...one of these days it will be that "sanctuary" I read about. Happy tackeling!

Ok--I am following along for tackle it november. I have a good sized master closet, but no organization system. Where did you get yours??

You will love the feeling you get when it's done. As you know that is what i have been doing for a week. I feel so much better but have so much more to do. I can't wait until it's all done!

Mike and I talked last night about finishing the basement... It is framed and the bedroom and lighting is done down there... we just need to add a few electrical sockets, hang the drywall and paint. (Eventually we will put in the bathroom and stuff but I can live without that for now. We have decided we will get the electricity done, then hang the drywall one piece every weekend... sounds crazy, but we just thought that small bites would work better for us. Better than nothing anyway... we will see how it goes. :)

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot.  It's a gift I know. I digress.

Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you.

All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great.
You will need:
3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide
1 drop dish soap
Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longer effective due to …

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned.....
