These show the BEFORE and PROGRESS shots from today. We pretty much took out anything that was obvious didn't belong in here first, then pulled all the painting supplies out (closest to door since we were painting in January) and then pulled all the sewing supplies out (majority of mess, most of which came from the closet re-org in late December). Then, I grouped like items still in the room and went through one drawer distributing its contents elsewhere in the house where we already had like items. The other drawer is already organized, although it is FULL and would probably benefit from a purging. That was enough for one day!
I really like that last picture in your set... Sewing Supplies Explosion, makes me feel slightly normal to see others with so much stuff!
Lets see what did I do since last posting.. got some more paint up on the walls, decided to use some carpet that we had stored back at the farm on the floor so hubby went and got that this weekend. Becuase of the carpet we decided to totally empty the room, now you can't walk anywhere in the basement except that one room, it's totally clear
Will be much easier to finish painting and there is no way to get the carpet down without moving all that stuff... it will be more work in the long run because I will want to go through everything before I bring stuff back into there but that is probably the best thing to do anyway.
I ran out of paint, went out and bought some more. Came home with 2 extra gallons that I hadn't planned on buying, both on the miscolored shelf... $6 a gallon, and it's a good name brand paint. a nice light green and a flat white, the white is called pearl or something, it will be good for either ceilings or as a primer. The green, I'm going to try it out in the office, had thought a tanish color in here... so??? if not office then I'll use it when I do the boys' room, they are wanting a jungle theme on their walls... for 6, I just couldn't pass it by. ...
so not much... a totally clear, basically clean space to start filling back once I get the rest of the painting done.. probably won't be until next weekend that hubby can work on the carpet so other than me attaching shelves to the wall, I'll be at a standstill until my helper can help me
