So with a week off between Christmas and New Year, we decided to make it productive and finally get to the GARAGE that we've discussed for two years. Time to transform it from the pool table for teenagers "rumpus room" (does anybody remember that name?!) into a functional garage and place to store Rob's fishing stuff (his corner) and my burgeoning collection of dishes, glasses, tablecloths, flatware and centerpieces, etc.
Cleared off the pooltable, gave 8 bookshelves full of books to Goodwill and different schools, then realigned the bookshelves to hold my dish obsession. We also tore out the old flooring with plans to put in an epoxy type floor but that will be another day. So ignore the floor and imagine my delight in being able to see all my prettilicious things in one place.
There is a pool table under all this clutter. I can't believe we let it get so out of control!
