Tackle It Tuesday #6 - PaperbackSwap & Update

This morning I completed the quick, easy, and as of now, FREE registration process for PaperBackSwap.

For the rest of today's tackle I'll post 10 books. By posting 10 books, I'll receive 2 credits as a "welcome gift". I can use these 2 credits to request my first 2 books from other members.

Go on over and read for yourself how quick and easy this process is - it's a great way to declutter and save some money!

Guest Room Conversion Update


Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

  • Obviously, clear out the room. Everything from computer pieces to bike parts. I am told all these various parts will eventually turn into a bicycle. I made a little progress clearing things out but still have some work to do.
Still clearing out . . .
  • Order window coverings. I ordered 3 of these from Target.
  • Order bedding. I ordered this organic duvet and pillows for the bed. I also order this blanket. I have a thing for pillows: I ordered this one in the sandlewood, this one in the khaki, this one in the ivory, and this organic one. Told you I had a thing for pillows. Can you tell I am going for a natural/neutral look with this room.
  • Order lamps. I decided to re-purpose lamps from another room so no need to order new ones. Never mind, I picked one up at Pier 1 for less than $30.
  • Install window treatments.Two out of Three hung ain't bad!
  • Buy comforter for duvet cover.
  • Buy mattress - Bob is doing this tomorrow
  • Come up with something for the walls. I found something I love - a little tribute to my husband. I figured if I won't let him have the real thing stored in here . . . .

The guest room is looking great! I love the duvet and the pillow and the lamp! I'm a earthy colors girl myself.

Have heard of paperback swap. I've researched it, but haven't done it yet. Usually I sell my books to a used book store or give them to a thrift shop unless they are ones I want to keep so I need to read a few before I have enough to swap!

And last, we have the same computer! Don't you just love it. We're tight, my ibook and me.
